Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was very service oriented. Appreciate their constant offer of water."

Cons: "While boarding, one attendant literally "yelled" at two different passengers, who she thought were stowing their luggage at the front of the plane and then being seated further back. One passenger was actually helping an elderly lady put her own suitcase in the overhead compartment - which she explained to the angry stewardess. The other passenger was placing her bag above her assigned seat and then headed to the back to the restroom. Other passengers were noticeably alarmed at the behavior of this stewardess.
