Bummer my Philadelphia connection is been delayed so far 3 times. Been 8 hours Still not in Philadelphia

Dec 28, 2019

My seat cushion was broken so I was in discomfort the entire flight. I informed the staff and they attempted to repair, but It was only temporary. The discomfort wasn’t fully repaired and it reverted back to being uncomfortable.

Water should be free of charge. Not $3.00 a cheap bottle of water

I loved the comfortable seats and wide space. I also liked the option of watching tv programs. I didn't like being charged for the meals or the luggage.
