No soap in bathroom and didn’t get added after I told attendant. Touch screen on monitor difficult to use and not many new American movies

Sep 27, 2019

Everything was great except the WIFI. I didn’t know I couldn’t stream any videos or any radio stations for that matter. Bought it to watch the football game and was unable to. So disappointed

Great flight, lots of food and wonderful entertainment. Flight attendants were great.

Jun 26, 2019

The food was surpriisingly good and lots of it! Also, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The seats were ridiculously small and uncomfortable but if it wasn’t for such friendly staff, it wouldn’t have been such a pleasant experience!

Newark airport gate was dingy and crowded

Sep 22, 2018

Seats are ridiculously narrow for average size people

Too cold!!!

Jul 20, 2018

Lots of food on the flight! Friendly staff, smooth landing. Overall, a great flight! Disappointing that we had to pay extra for each checked bag.

Jul 6, 2018

Plane seats are still horrible.

Apr 5, 2018

I was told, that I was allowed to carry only one piece of luggage on the plane. Most other airlines allow more than one. Especially, since I did not check in any luggage in this flight..
