Nov 1, 2018

Flight took off late due to needed maintenance but was still able to make my connection

Aug 13, 2018

The only thing that wasn't perfect was that I didn't get seated with my 6year old daughter for both my flights so we had to get the seats changed at the gate (even though we purchased our plane tickets together and selected seats online). Otherwise these flights were extremely smooth!! very pleasant overall.
