Jan 4, 2020

Both flights on time and came in 30 mins early. Baggage arrived quickly too.

Jan 2, 2020

The downside to the flight was the flight staff started drinks on opposite ends of the airplane which caused me, in the middle of the plane, to have to wait an hour to use the restroom.

Dec 23, 2019

There was inconsistency in receiving text messages/email on flight status and check in. My brother traveled with me. We both received some messages but comparing notes we could see we each did not receive all. I never got the checkin email notice and he did not receive flight status text messages.
