Pros: "Everything was on time with departure and arrival and fly was very smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like that our 5 hour flight did not provide a complimentary meal. Also half of the crew were friendly but the other half was not so much.

Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit.
