Pros: "Clean smooth flight and nice crew"
Cons: "Rude woman at check in counter"

Pros: "1. The guy sitting next to me. 2. The pilot."

Flight attendant had a commandant attitude from the get-go, before anyone had any time to cause any problems, very stern and “listen to our instructions and show us respect!” 3. Seats SO cramped, did not recline. “Tray table” was 5x8 inches. Really."
