Great flight!

Very pleased,. Please keep the direct flight year round. We are going again in December from Pittsburgh to Cancun

Apr 1, 2018

No Tvs on plane for a 3-4 hour flight. Should be tvs or free wifi for that length of flight. On our way back American Airlines had free wifi which was nice.

I wasn't able to sit with the person I was flying with. Our seats weren't together. That was the only downside.
