Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "super punctual"
Pros: "Nothing in special."

Pros: "There's actually footrests that fold out like a lawn chair in economy and there's lots of leg room so you can actually put your legs up and sleep. First time I ACTUALLY slept on a long haul flight. Chairs seemed to be made of soft leather or some other super comfy material. Puts the older US-based planes to absolute shame. Super soft fluffy blankets, the flight attendants were amazing, courteous, hospitable, the food and drinks were awesome, loved the movies. 10/10 would fly again."

Pros: "Everything was fine except the flight was delayed an hour. No biggie. My only question is that I had a trip that passed through Isa to 3rd country. At check in I was informed that bags would go all the way through without re-checking in. Turns out bags had to be re-checked in at first entry to usa. I wish the rules were consistent and that all personnel knew the rules. Also united baggage track app does not work."
Cons: "United baggage app does not work Personnel did not know baggage rules at Chck in."
Pros: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Everything was just right"

Cons: "I never got to fly !!! I was flying to Rio de Janeiro from USA and my flight got canceled, so I never made it to Rio therefore I wasn’t able to fly to São Paulo . I called you guys and the airline to see what you could do for me . Very bad customer service considering there’s a pandemic. I understand certain flights are non refundable but during the circumstances you could’ve gave a voucher to use later but instead you tried to charge me more money to make changes when I didn’t even know when I was able to fly. To all this I lost my money and my chance to fly later . Never again I will buy anything from Kayak . You just lost a customer!!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "To be denied my flight, and no refund."
Pros: "Aircraft look new and very clean."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late. It would be better if they kept the flights on time specially this time of the year. They had several flights daily from São Paulo to Rio, no reason to be late. It would be better if the employees knew the rules about their work. Everything very disorganized from the gate number to the carry on allowed in the plane. I will never fly with Gol again."
Pros: "Nice new plane."
Cons: "Boarding process could be better"
Cons: "I had two USB chargers at my seat, but neither worked :("

Cons: "More efficient check in. Waiting in line far too long at gate."

Cons: "I didn’t like the snacks."
Pros: "Their boarding is more orderly than many Brazilian airlines."
Cons: "check in was difficult. Their app is terrible - check in was not allowed.. The website is worse - it couldn't link my locator number to my account. And the gate check in had an absurdly small number of kiosks and no one to help the confused passengers. Boarding was done on time and they kept the door open for 20 minutes after take off time with no announced reason for the delay."
Cons: "Extremely cramped. They ran out of certain drinks. Confusing boarding."

Got there by 9:15 only to find out it’s been closed for checking bags. I beg , implore and there’s nothing to be done. Pay extra for 2 extra bags, for what? Nothing. Lost about $75 altogether non refundable. SUCKS."
Cons: "What’s to like? Because of 30 they couldn’t added mire luggage. Begging imploring it didn’t matter. Ok I didn’t like loosing $75. Who’s gonna refund? Nobody. SUCKS"
Pros: "fast flight, cofy seats!"
Pros: "Equipe atenciosa Sistema de entreterimento funcionou bem. Comida boa."
Cons: "The company just sucks. I have gotten so many flights delayed with them that I am not even going to bother buying any more tickets with them"
Pros: "I had a plesent flight with good food and good service both ways, the flight timing and connection was very good and the pricing of the jurnay was good. I will defently use the company the next time when I am traveling the same route later. Best regards Jan Christian Nygaard,"
Cons: "I have no comments to add hear, because everything went fine."
Pros: "el vuelo estuvo bastante bien"
Cons: "casi perdemos el vuelo porque no nos podian despachar las valijas, nadie hablaba ingles o español para que nos podemos hacer entender y terminamos pagando el doble por despachar el equipaje"
Cons: "The width of the seats were too small."
Pros: "Las instalaciones en perfecto estado todo en funcionamiento"

Pros: "The crew was nice and professional"
Cons: "no entertainment. No leg room"
Pros: "Knowing that GOL is an LCC, I was not expecting much. However, after realizing that every seat had the legroom typical of a Extra Comfort seat on NA carriers, I soon became won over. Regular recline functionality (missing on some of the larger LCCs worldwide) and a free drink and snack (also missing on many LCCs), TOO was truly a relaxing flight. 10/10. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "I mean, there was no entertainment available (to my knowledge) but there was allegedly Wi-Fi (I didn't try)."
Pros: "In general is fine, but the same price of all the other airlines . I flew 3 hours and no tv! (and no meal) I'd fly Avianca next time: They all have your personal tv and gives you meal even for short flights."
Cons: "It was on time."
Cons: "Me gustaría que además de portugués e inglés, se hablara español, tener en cuenta que sale de Buenos Aires"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online because system was down and at the airport they had trouble printing my ticket because of a challenge between kayak (flight network) and Gol. Literally hours wasted."
Cons: "They had only 4 people checking in the luggages and the lines was huge ... my wait in line was longer than my fight which I think it's absurd"
Pros: "The crew. They are very careful."
Cons: "They charge me by my baby stroller! They lost part of my bag. Never more I will travel by GOL."
Pros: "A equipe de bordo agradável, mas o check-in pessimo"
Pros: "On time departure"
Pros: "legroom, boarding process."
Cons: "snacks were kinda sparce"

The mask policy is not enforced by the crew. Multiple people around us would not even wear the mask or have it on their chin. Flight attendants would walk past these people and not say anything. All they do is make overhead announcements about the masks being mandatory but they are terrible at enforcing the rules, very disappointing.

Aside from the 5-6 texts for the flight changing the flight was pretty comfortable

very bad experience they closed the flight 10 minutes before the flight girls very bad attention

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If the security doesn’t humiliate the people"

Pros: "The gate agents and flight attendants were true heroes, they did they're absolute best in a terrible situation."
Cons: "American Airlines once again fails to provide the required number of flights and crews for a holiday weekend, and did a terrible job of letting passengers know what the situation with their flights are."
Pros: "Flight on time and covid Prevention was in place."
Cons: "Failed to provide wheelchairs as requested."
Pros: "The crew was amiable. The plane was crowded but clean."
Pros: "Getting from one location to the next. Making sure everyone was okay with the turbulence."
Cons: "There was no Dr.Pepper, took forever for the WiFi to kick in. Only had the biscotti cookies for the snack."
Cons: "The jerks left early despite the fact that security and baggage were backed up. We ran to our gate and barely missed the flight. Jerks! Who leaves early when so many passengers are missing?!"
Pros: "Crew was amable and entertainment is good with lots of choicest."
Cons: "My seat would not recline. Although many other seats we available I was assigned to a middle seat with both aisle and window occupied. The flight was delayed by 2 hrs. Austin baggage services was closed and check in attendants were unablento help me delivered the luggage that was cracked for replacement. I ended up paying for a 2nd checked bag and leave it at Miami AA baggage services for replacement."
Pros: "How quick American Airlines moves to keep people on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Love the seat. Left side best going to Jackson hole"
Cons: "Bigger snack"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "More snack choices"
Cons: "First plane broken, second plane broken, overall 4 hours late, 2 hours of that sitting in a hot plane"

Cons: "Mechanical problems deejays the flight and I missed my connection. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."
Pros: "Getting home EVENTUALLY"
Cons: "10 minutes after leaving Austin the pilot tellsnus Houston air traffic control is grounding all westbound flights due to a storm in Dallas that's causing too much congestion. So we sa on the Tarmac for 90 minutes. I have a difficult time believing this situation was a surprise. Possibly it was just to free up the gate and not have to go through reboarding. Also leg room is getting reduced to 28 inches. I'm 5"11 and cramped. How is JetBlue better than American? How much will these airlines continue to bend us over. I didn't even take the screaming infant into account.... since it's not AA's fault for letting that baby on board."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "They lost our bags in Dallas. The customer service rep was useless"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "It was very hot inside the plane and dificult to sleep No breakfast when we arrived in Brazil In Lima, after the flight from Miami, the period for the connection to Brazil was very short. At the airport, when I inquired about attention to get through the security line, the answered was that we have to ask for permission to pass before the passagens that was waiting in queue."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "westjet delayed my flight once again, so I was stuck in the LAX airport for 5 hours"
Cons: "Wanted more food. Haha!!"
Pros: "My Mom was very grateful for the friendly assistance as she is wheelchair bound and was flying aline. Excellent service!!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Voo pontual, atendimento da tripulação, serviço de bordo, qualidade da aeronave."
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "easy on and easy off. ontime."
Cons: "a little more room between people and more padding in the seats. also delta used to have a screen in each seat and you could see where you were and how far you have gone and so on. could also see more and music."

Pros: "Good price, effective transportation, nothing special"
Cons: "Very full, not super comfortable"
Pros: "Good entertainment options in newer flights."
Cons: "Food options for first class could be better."
Pros: "It's just like very other airlines."
Pros: "I was flying with 2 children on my own and had an issue booking seats together, the gate agents worked to find a solution when we arrived and we were all seated together. Thank you so much for keeping us all together, as my one child has aspbergers and the other is only 8 and we are not frequent flyers. I highly recommend your airline to everyone I meet. Everything met or exceeded our needs. Thank you so very much."
Pros: "Airport expansion"
Cons: "Due to construction traffic is a problem but still manageable"
Pros: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"
Pros: "Quick connection"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bins - even in first class"
Cons: "Kiosks were not functioning and we were forced to stand in long lines for customer service for luggage tags Many passengers missed their flights No help for those using malfunctioning kiosks only one person to help hundreds of stuck customers and we barely made our flight"
Pros: "Our experience was very smooth. We appreciate all the work that went into making this a pleasant experience for all of us."
Pros: "The flight was very good. Boarding was good, shorter flight, smooth, landed and off we were."
Cons: "Seating still needs a little more padding for comfort. Delta airlines has a screen on every seat and you can see where you are and how far you have gone and so on. That would be nice. It was very difficult to hear what the pilot said when he spoke to say hello and whatever else he said. Entertainment? There wasn't any on this flight"
Pros: "wifi was great"
Pros: "Infrastructure"
Cons: "Staff behaviour"
Cons: "There was no food offered. The stewardess was not happy to be at work."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful."
Pros: "Newly refurbished plane"
Cons: "Ran out of red wine"
Pros: "I made it home safe."
Cons: "However, the customer service was horrible and very unprofessional. I had to leave a loved one behind because nobody knew the rules and regulations on bringing back a pet! Now, I don't have my dog Tyson with me and my fiancé surprised me with him as an early Christmas gift. I won't be flying with American Airlines again!)"
Pros: "I prefer this size plane to the other alternatives."
Cons: "No snacks were offered at all."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "No internet on plane. Plane was older. Seats were not comfortable. Had to wait 40 minutes in hot plane for our gate to be available for our plane to pull into."
Pros: "Free WiFi, better options for entertainment, better snacks (see Alaska Airlines or Southwest)"
Cons: "The snacks, internet prices, and entertainment"
Pros: "Snacks were delicious, flight attendant was very attentive, great conversation—I mean it might have been better because I was in first class, but it was definitely worth the upgrade."
Cons: "Seats weren’t as comfortable as I have experienced before in first class on other airlines (Delta, American)"
Pros: "While i normally fly AA i gave United a try & my flight to Austin was surprisingly comfortable & enjoyable. The trip back was another story. Seated between two very nice but 250lb people who spilled over into my seat. The Entertainment channel was best part of trip and that was uneven."
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable. Inedible food that I had to pay for was another frustration. We had a 45 min flight delay. At that point food should be gratis. A good opportunity to create loyalty was squandered. Complete lack of awareness about human essentials."
Pros: "I liked the free in ight movies which makes a 5 hr plane ride a a lot more enjoyable. Having 2 rounds of free beverages was also what I liked. The seats are comfortable, plenty of leg room, love that there are plug/ports to charge you electronic devices."
Cons: "What could have been better especially on a 5hr flight to Honolulu would be free wifi, free meals, if not free meals then 2 rounds of snacks, and I know it's out of the airlines control, but families with their screaming babies who's parents leave the tray down to keep their toddler entertained so she could kick it up and down through out the flight. I feel the airlines should place families with babies and toddlers together on a portion of the plane."
Pros: "They check in lady was wonderful."
Cons: "In flight entertainment kept getting disconnected. Stewardess serving drinks seemed a bit cranky."
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac for 35 minutes because our flight was “randomly” selected to wait because there was too much air traffic over Houston. Result: I missed my connection to my final destination. The airline promised that the other flights were alerted of the delay and that people would be there to assist. May departure gate was literally two gates away from my arrival gate in Houston. No one was there to help. No exceptions were made to get me on the flight, even as it was delayed at the gate for 15 minutes, meaning that they could have gotten me aboard. The whole experience made me very angry. After all this, I had to wait an additional two hours for the next flight."
Pros: "Flight was good and I am satisfied."
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work because the headphone jack was broken so that was a major bummer."
Pros: "Ronald fight attendant made our first time to Europe trip very pleasing. He was amazing."
Cons: "nothing everything was perfect."
Pros: "The pilot team did an outstanding job explaining and communicating our progress in our holding pattern outside of Newark. We still missed our flight but God love em, they tried!"
Cons: "Great airline...change nothing down! Keep the current level or keep raising it."
Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "The departure was delayed because of weather in Houston. If the Houston flight to SJC would have waited than we could have avoided other delays"
Pros: "Not much honestly"
Cons: "In flight entertainment system is outdated without many good movies. Screaming children and the flight attendants did nothing about them. We boarded very late and I was afraid that I would miss the flight due to UA making us sit on the tarmac forever."
Pros: "Power outlets. Friendly staff."
Cons: "What entertainment was there? No movie, you had to pay for internet. United to me seems to be a lesser luxurious airline, not like how it use to be. It’s apparent that they are making some cut backs. Not liking this bag fee they’ve added."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Stewardess was impatient, rude and not helpful. Asked for milk & it was spoiled which made my daughter gag. Worst part is I called United to confirm they would take care of the transfer of my luggage all the way to my final destination even with sleeping over in Japan & they said yes. Turns out, I had to get all my luggage & check it back in the next day."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Due to space limitations this was one of the most uncomfortable transatlantic trips in about 30 years"
Pros: "Over all flight was good.."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed 4 hours ..I waited at the Austin Airport all day before boarding plane coming from the Atlanta airport due to the outage ..noone was informed of the delay while waiting for boarding. I had missed my original flight and was bumped to a later flight which turned into waiting 8 hours to board ..so, I really was frustrated."
Cons: "The fact that you can not check in online unless pay for checked baggage is predatory and manipulative."
Cons: "No room for overhead bag. The overhead has room for 3 bags over each set of 3 seats. So there’s room for one bag for each passenger. How does united allow the overhead to fill up in an unfair manner"
Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."
Pros: "Flight was delayed causing us to miss our connection in Houston to Bonaire. No flights until 2 weeks and we missed a vacation planned with several friends. All United said was they were sorry. We did get our money back. But not another thing."
Pros: "All of the united staff was very understanding and patient. Since this was the first time that we brought our daughter who is six months old we were both worried"
Pros: "The flight attendants were pretty nice."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half while we waited for 'paperwork'. The captain kept trying to make it seem like our fault for missing our connections because we didn't have longer layovers in O'Hare. I barely made my connection. I know other people did not."
Pros: "Delayed, still in Houston waiting for another flight to go back home since last night"
Cons: "My July 11 fiight UA1259 was delayed and I could not connect to Milan. I had to stay in Newark for 1 night. But UA assigned me a hotel about 1 hour driving from Newark Airport. I had to rent by my own money $160 a day. UA should arraign a hotel either close to the airport or pay the rental car for me."
Pros: "Just your avergae flight and time for a quick flight to a nearby city"
Cons: "Just luggage being lost at the final destination was a despressing conversation"
Pros: "We liked the crew, they were helpful."
Cons: "We did not like the video on the United flight that used the app. We were not told about this until it was too late and the instructions were not good for how to get the app--they were misleading. I had to go to the app store, not the United website. Also, our seats were changed without our knowledge and the flight description for the flight from Austin to Washington, DC, specified complimentary lunch and there was no lunch unless you wanted to buy it. This should be more clear, so that I can bring my own lunch if there will be none provided."
Pros: "I boarded Lufthansa Flight# 568 on June 1st from Frankfurt to Lagos (my Destination) but forgot my pair of glasses. I made a couple of calls and was finally able to get a contact email address for malik.haruna@dlh.de. He is the gentleman at the NAHCO AVIANCE office. He was not only very professional but went over and beyond corresponding well and was able to get the word across to the Malabo Airport where the flight finally terminated. My pair of glasses was returned from Malabo to Nigeria where I picked it up within a couple of days. I was so overjoyed at this display of fantastic customer service. Great job by the excellent team at Lufthansa. I'm going to remain with Lufthansa for future trips. Signed OF."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The crew was understanding and patient"
Cons: "I was informed by text that flight would be 3 hours late but when I called I was told I would need to get to airport at least an hour before scheduled departure as They MIGHT get a new aircraft!!!! However when I got to airport the flight was now listed at 4 hours late. Then it was listed as 6 hours late and We arrived 6 1/2 hours late. I had missed my first trAin connection and lost part of that fee because of change then had to take UBER from airport to Penn Station in order to catch the LAST train to my home in upstate NY and was so late I could not call people to pick me up so had to take another taxi. The $50 credit you gave us did not even cover my extra taxi fares let alone aggravation AND the TV monitor in front of my seat did not work!! I am a United mileage person who flies regularly but to Texas and internationally but this was worst flight in years."
Pros: "I like that since the fight wasn't full, and I didn't know until after I bought my ticket on kayak that I couldn't change seats. The crew allowed me and my friend to sit together."
Cons: "That the window seat armrest doesn't raise to allow more room that's available."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"
Cons: "There were too many pretzels in the snack mix and not enough of the yummy orange things"
Pros: "The attendants were friendly, knowledgeable, available. Flight was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and cramped. Cold inside plane. "Free" Wi-Fi free only after you downloaded app. Didn't know I needed to down load app before we took off so then I needed Wi-Fi to download app, which cost money. Noisy inside plane. Ear plugs would be nice."
Pros: "THE PEOPLE WHERE GREAT ."
Cons: "CRAMP SEATING ,CEO,S SHOULD RIDE THESE SEATING FOR FOUR HOURS IN THE BACKOF THIS NOISE PLANES ."
Cons: "Though delayed through no fault of the airline, there was very little effort made to hold connecting flight for a few brief moments so that we could catch up to it"
Pros: "Small plane"
Cons: "Air con too cold. Freezing inside the plane"
Cons: "The arrogance and attitude from air crew, ground service staff to lounge receptionist was unreal."
Pros: "Polite, professional and kept us informed"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Flight itself was short."
Cons: "It took longer to board and wait to take off than the entire flight lasted. Deplaning and receiving gate checked bags seemed to take longer than normal times. One of the attendants (don't know his name, but he had glasses) was not pleasant. He seemed to want to be anywhere other than there."
Cons: "The people at the check in in Boise were unpleasant. Seemed angry and frustrated with everyone. Our flight from San Francisco to Boise was cancelled and the person on the phone was not helpful at all. The two flight attendants argued at least three times dragging passengers in on their fight. My husband and I were sitting in the back. It was very uncomfortable. Thank goodness I had my headphones. Then the flight attendant followed one of the passengers to the women's restroom at the SF airport to argue her point after overhearing she was going to email the airline!"
Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."
Pros: "Polite attendants!"
Cons: "Will definitely recommend to friends!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours and when I checked in the agents at the front desk offered me a $10 meal voucher to restaurants that were already closed, so it was basically useless. I had to walk to opposite end of the airport just to find something open. My seat and surrounding area were filthy. There was hard, crunchy food on the floor, the tray was sticky and the seat 'cushion' was rock hard. Being that I have a preexisting lower-back condition, sitting in that seat was horrible. When I asked a flight attendant for a wet rag to wipe the tray off they told me I could just switch seats and showed that they didn't care. Basically, it was a disappointing end to a great trip."
Pros: "When they couldn't do their job they turned us over to American Airlines."
Cons: "Cancelled our scheduled 1:30 pm flight from Austin to Chicago for "scheduled" maintainence. We drove 3 hours and spent almost $300 for a rental car to get to Dallas for the flight they put us on, which we couldn't make. We told the check in counter and they gave us boarding passes for an American flight that wouldn't leave until 10:00 pm but that we could try to get on stand by for an earlier flight. At this point we were already missing a concert we were trying to make in Chicago. Another $150 gone. We were lucky enough to make the 8:30 pm Dallas to Chicago with American and arrived at Ohare by 11:00 pm. All in all United wasted $300 on a rental car, $150 of concert tickets and 5 hours of paid time off I can't get back. Very disappointed. PS: they gave us food vouchers at the airport to apologize and they were already expired. They couldn't do one thing right."
Cons: "It is June, not December. No idea why the delays. Got put on multiple different flights due to delays, missed connection and meeting. Turned around to go home at 3 am. It was hell. United is so disappointing, not the first time. Will avoid at all cost in the future."
Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."
Cons: "The in-house wifi signal was constantly cutting in and out. Made it impossible to watch any of the media that was pre-downloaded on the United app."
Pros: "I liked having multiple lines for each boarding group. I think it would make sense to board from back of plane to front. I think it would make it go quicker"
Cons: "Having to check my bag plane side."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Very old plane"
Cons: "Customer service via phone was unhelp and kind of snarky. She knew I was several thousand miles from home trying to get back, but wouldn't arrange for me to get on a different plane without a $650 fee. Another airline would have bumped people off their flights so I could get hiome. I was not pleased that my missed flight couoldn't be accommodated reasonably. Apparently my ticket was wroth nothing..."
Pros: "Personnel is nice"
Cons: "There is no one to help guide you if you have questions. Basically if you need help, get in an unorganized line. Check-in is a free for all. Signs are not clear or prominent. TSA Pre-Check was closed at one part even though I was told it was open."
Pros: "The flight was uneventful and we landed early. Although there were no entertainment options on the plane besides wifi, I just watched my own shows on the smartphone. The snack that we got was actually not bad."
Cons: "Seat is still a bit small, even with their updated seats that moved the seat pockets to the top. Cushion is hard and became uncomfortable after an hour o so."
