Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Cramped seating in basic economy, the upgrade seating wasn’t much better"
Cons: "Too cramped and no flight entertainment"
Pros: "Lots of leg room for a regional jet."
Cons: "AC was not very good. Very warm on flight."
Pros: "The boarding was quick due to the size of the plane/amount of people. The flight was short- less than 50 minutes."
Cons: "It was a 2x2 charter flight with very tight seating. There were some seating issues, and the attendant was a little rude about them to some customers."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. We did not make the connecting flight. They would not provide us another flight same day or money back or money for the rental that we required."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The flight was half empty and when I tried to move a row ahead of me (from economy to economy plus), the flight attendance rudely told me I had to move back to my seat since the economy plus seat was $70 more. However, a reasonable airline would upgrade their customers to first or economy plus to not only appease their customers but to fill some empty seats. Therefore, I had to spend the entirety of my redeye flights crammed next to someone while I was looking at an almost empty economy plus section. Also, we boarded earlier than expected but we spend an extra hour on the flight waiting to take off. I would not have minded boarding early if we had taken off early, but we took off an hour later."
