The on flight and ground crew during our detour to Syracuse due to bad weather in Providence were GREAT

Jul 14, 2018

Flight attendants should be able to look at the customers face-to-face. When drinks service came around my flight attendant was behind me trying to talk to me. Then my drinks and the drinks of the people sitting next to me all came over our heads, that sounds like a recipe for disaster. I was very unimpressed.
