It’s really hard to find my trip in the app currently and check in. Is there a way this could be streamlined? It’s confusing to navigate to and the app is not clear what info is needed to find your trip. After checking in though, it is easy to use. Good flight

Would have preferred a wheel chair in the jetway but I got my exercise!

People who need assistance shouldn’t have to sit in last row of plane
