Seats were very small and being in last row made it impossible to put your seat back.

Tight connections at O’Hare always a problem. Almost missed flight. 45 minutes wasn’t enough

Nov 10, 2019

We were traveling with my 5 month old. I was a little disappointed in the first check in agent because she put my husband and I in middle seats in different rows. From Chicago to Pittsburgh the attendants were nice enough to put us in the very back of the plane and gave us a row all to ourselves. That was very helpful when traveling with a baby.
