Baggage service at arrival substandard. Call me to get my bag claiming there was a theft problem with the airport Then, when I went to get my bag they declined to check my claim ticket to verify???

Way to cramped in the seats. Always bumping my head too.

Mar 27, 2018

The flight was delayed leaving Santa Barbara, but the pilot made up for it and the flight attendant asked the pilot to update us so we weren’t worried after I inquired about my connection. It was refreshing to be communicated with and in a kind way.
