No space for my legs

Jul 11, 2019

The gentleman that helped us was VERY helpful and polite. We were with our baby and he made checking in a little less stressful.

Friendly stewards & pilots

Yvette was just great - very professional, yet very funny. Lorna was just as nice and helpful.

Aug 31, 2018

I was traveling with my three children and we were not seated together. I believe when children are under the age of twelve they should be seated with the parent/parents. With the world we live in today and the troublesome situations happening to children nowadays I believe airlines should take in consideration seating children with their parents. I am greatful there were people on plane who looked after my children for me. This was the first tirip my three children flew on a plane.
