Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."

Cons: "The flight left three hours late while the crew was waiting for an oxygen tank to arrive. We were boarded onto the plane after it was nearly an hour and a half late, then waited in out cramped seats for another hour and a half as we continued to wait for the same piece of equipment. At one point a Delta employee announced over the plane's PA system that we'd be getting vouchers to compensate us for this absurd delay, but there was no explanation of how to claim those vouchers."
Cons: "I was seated in first class, and due to some catering mix-up, no meal was served. I was given a banana and crackers which was very disappointing since I hadn't eaten in 8 hours and was starving. No on board entertainment whatsoever."

Cons: "The flight was delay for 3 hours and they only give us chips and water. They didn't explain well what was the problem. The plane was dirty inside and the seats werent comfortable at all, the plane was making weird noises. There is no window in the 11A Window Seat. Really really bad service at all."
Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."

All in all, a well handled experience in the face of disaster."

Arriving in Panama we flew to costa Rica again checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" ... Now almost 11 hours later we arrive in Costa Rica and because my passport was ripped they wouldn't let me in the country and sent me back. Why your airlines couldn't have told me this before I got all the way to Costa Rica and passed two check points I don't know. So you guys said you would send us to Puerto Rico but I would have to by my own plane ticket home... Very disappointed in your airline. And to top it off my boyfriend and I had very expensive osprey packs we were traveling with .. We used a copa plastic bag to wrap them up in Vegas so the strings would not get caught .. When we received our packs in Puerto Rico YOUR employees had taken the bags off and cut my boyfriends 300 dollar bag! I will never fly again with your airline."

Pros: "They served a meal and it left on-time."
Cons: "I bought my ticket through Kayak and it included a layover in Panama City. However, it was being run on two separate airlines (United and Copa). Because of this, I could not check-in online. I arrived in San Jose to check in early since I had a 4am flight and was planning to sleep in the terminal. However, the Copa crew did not show up until 2/2:30am to begin checking people in at the counter. There was no other way I could get my ticket ahead of time and I probably would have stayed at a hotel and left early rather than arriving at 8pm and waiting for 6 hours in the open part of the airport."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "Row 22 was not a charme. We did not get any drinks at all. Should not happen on a flight. No entertainment"

Pros: "Comfy seats onboard Good selection of movies Decent food from MEX to SFO"
Cons: "I purchased ticket stating business class for both legs, but the first leg of my trip did not have a business class cabin at all. I did not get what i paid for!!!!

Cons: "The space between seats"
Pros: "The crew was fine. I did not like the seats, we could not be comfortable."

Cons: "Seat space is miserable"
Pros: "Crew very attentive"
Pros: "Wifi on bord, staff"
Pros: "The ove"
Cons: "We could have left on time, not an hour 1:35 hrs late. The passenger next to me could have taken a shower to kill the super strong body odor. My seat could have reclined and The entertainment could have worked. But none of there happened so it was a very uncomfortable flight."

Cons: "I brought the same Samsonite carry on luggage piece that I’ve used on multiple major airlines (Avianca, United, American, Copa, etc.) with no problems, and AeroMexico says it’s too big, the wheels didn’t fit into the sizing bin. Super frustrating if one of the most popular luggage manufacture makes a “carry-on” bag, airlines should realize people will be arriving with the expectations that they can use it as a carry on. Anyways I’m out $58 both ways ($116). I will not fly with AeroMexico again because of this simple fact."
Cons: "Terrible flight, food was horrible! entertainment has not changes for the past 3 month-"
Cons: "I missed the flight because I was given the wrong door information. In additio to this the airline never called the figjt through the speakers. The worse was the cuatomer service. Will never fly Aeroméxico again"

Pros: "Easy, polite, genuine people, no fakes, no unnecessary restrictions."
Pros: "None of our flights were full, so there was plenty of room to stretch out. Crew was polite and helpful. I like their boarding procedures, by assigned zone. Entertainment options were quite decent. I don’t speak any Spanish, but crew also spoke English, which I aporeciated. Toilets were kept sufficiently clean during flight."
Cons: "Food was your average airplane food, in other words, not so good but on par with most other airlines I’ve experienced"
Pros: "I liked the food and everyone on the crew."
Cons: "The leg length was so short after my first flight. No individual screens, and what there was was a pretty bad movie."
Pros: "Flight attendants were good"
Cons: "As mentioned in a previous comment, while I enjoy AM domestic first/business class product on the new planes, unfortunately, I cannot say the same about their old ones. AM seats do not provide a footrest, and there is the lack of the IFE, which on a longer flight like mex-tij could have made the flight more enjoyable. Food, AM domestic business class food options are not the best, it was a turkey/cheese sandwich on a white bread with heavy mayo, and milk rice-while delicious, also very heavy on the sugar"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The front desk staff"
Pros: "Left early due to their boarding organization"
Cons: "Nice to be fed but very mediocre"
Cons: "Bad service!"

Pros: "Everyone was polite & kind, and incredibly efficient."
Pros: "I enjoyed the movies and the accuracy of the flight time etc very much! It was super helpful during long flights."
Cons: "I couldn’t understand 90% of what anyone was saying due to it all being in Spanish which I found to be a little rude to be honest. You know you have a lot of English speaking only people on your flights yet you do not make any announcements in both Spanish and English like a lot of other airlines do."
Cons: "We arrived on time but we did not landed. The pilot kept circling around Montreal and no information was provided to passengers."
Pros: "Great seats with individual screens for free movies"
Cons: "No vegetarian option Long back up at Mexico City customs"
Pros: "Entertainement, service."
Cons: "No veggie option for meals even though I asked for vegetarian meal when checking in. Late boarding."
Cons: "I was sent to Sala A & there was agate # 1 there; however, there was a second Sala A with a Gate #1 & from there my plane was boarding by the time I made it to the correct boarding gate it was too late for me to board the plane. I had to purchase another plane ticket in order for me to make it to the United States. It was a bad situation & the employees were very rude. They blame me & the manager never show his face to help me out. He could have at least given me a discount given the award situation. But, the customer service or will to help me was just not there."
Cons: "That you hateo pay the 1st.bag"
Pros: "Very poor customer service."
Cons: "Flight attendant seemed like have little attitude. Their attitude doesn't only express by verbal it even expresses by their eye contact and body language ."
Pros: "we were shocked by how great the flight accommodations were, from the inflight entertainment to the food/beverage service to the flight attendants."
Pros: "To get from GDL to MGM requires 3 flights. Two were cancelled and the other delayed. The cancelations were due to maintenance issues. Delta apparently is flying plans that should be in the shop."
Cons: "To start with I paid to check in my suitcase. But I change my mind and decided to have a cary on. when I arrived at the airport I told an agent that I wanted to bring my suitcase as carry-on and she said that it was too large. So I had to wait in line. When I finally fot to the counter the agent and the agent realized I had already paid. She said that I could try take my suitcase under my own responsibility because she thought security would send me back. I was very surprised to hear this because it is a computer case. I did not have any problems and was able to embark. The plane had not bern clean. The pocket underneath my table had a used kleenex and the table of the person seated next to my had coffee spilled. During the 5:50 hrs only once were we offer a drink. Really bad service for an international flight."
Pros: "leg room boarding"
Cons: "the 3 :45 hour delay for what they said were mechanical reasons. The food is really minimally acceptable."
Cons: "Aeromexico dis not let me board my flight from Mexico to Vancouver. They said they couldn't clear my name and print me a boarding pass. Stuck at airport for 14hours and ended up flying aircanda to yvr the next morning. Terrible customer service/care. Never flying aeromexico again."
Pros: "Aeromexico on board service is much better than other Montreal-Mexico flights. You eat, you drink, and you get the feeling that the crew actually cares about your well-being ! Oh and the flight is most often on time..."
Cons: "Checking-in online, getting a seat on the plane before getting to the airport, has been quite quite complicated for me, many times."
Cons: "Flight cancelled with little explanation and little help from Aero Mexico to help us get to our destination. Had to request refund instead and have not seen that yet, either- more than a week later."
Pros: "Everything was perfect. Flight on time, enough food and drink. Free blanket, headset, beer, etc."
Pros: "Aeromexico puts delta, United, American to shame. Every time I fly with Aeromexico they have on-time flights, food and drinks included, friendly service and excellent price for tickets. No last second delays or flight rescheduling as happens with US carriers. I'll take Aeromexico ANY day over the shitty US airlines. And for those complaining about info not being readily available in English, it doesn't hurt to learn a little Spanish"
Cons: "They ran out of Corona."
Cons: "tried to xcl a month in advance due to unfortunate circumstances....to no avail. no help at all, whatsoever"
Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end.

Pros: "good food, good entertainment, on time departure and arrival"
Pros: "We did not make it to this flight since it was cancelled"
Cons: "We were rebooked on a flight with a short connection to London and they bumped us off that flight claiming that they could not get our bags in on time. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The bad stuff overshadowed the good stuff. Bad experience."
Cons: "We took off late and never made up for the time lost which resulted in me missing my connection in Denver. Had to be rerouted to Toronto that night and spent night in hotel. Next day, we took off late and that resulted in me missing my connection in Denver... It took me two days instead of one to travel to my last destination. Not happy with Air Canada, three out four flights took off late. I also almost missed my flight in Montreal to go to Paris if it was not for the friendly and helpful Canadian Customs people."
Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "To pay American dollars for baggage on AC coming back to CANADA or to pay AT ALL for a bag"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seating that one can have. I will never fly rouge again."

Pros: "Smooth flight and we arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "I as first time travel from US to Canada no information given on flight regarding how to get to connections and customs. Unaware of requirements to claim luggage after customs and before security We were surprised at the lack of any offer of snacks on a five hour flight"
Cons: "movie selection is poor and using your own device isnt that enjoyable. Girl at counter was demeaning."
Cons: "That was a first time i saw a paid entertainment system. That was a long-haul (9 hrs) flight. Either you pay and have an iPad with movies, music etc. or nothing. Very interesting."
Cons: "Food and no tv on the seat didn't want to look own the whole time"

Cons: "The plane boarded early and the food was not good. The pasta was over cooked and essentially a mash."
Cons: "Not offered earphones"
Pros: "Nice, polite and helpful bilingual crew. Apologetically when trouble started and we had to do two unscheduled stops in Calgary. THe second crew was also very nice but not very bilingual."
Cons: "The fact that we were over 6 hours late, and even with my old age, I went 24 hours without sleep. I missed my ride to the apartment where I was supposed to stay and had to rent a room at an hotel nearby, adding to the costs of the flight."
Pros: "i didn't like anything about this flight"
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed and everything else since boarding was a mess. It was hard for the fly hostess to keep her calm and we knew she was stressed, as much as many passengers who lost their connection or who had really tied ones. I noticed also that it wasn't the only flight delayed so I am not sure if this is usual with Air Canada."
Pros: "Food and comfort were okay."
Cons: "My first plane sat on the Tarmac for 45 min, thus I missed my flight to"

Cons: "The waiting room in Boston was awful and behind security, hot, small crowded. Delayed"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Horrible smelly crampy cloth seats, awful food, they don't offer complementary wine and beer for international flights like other carriers, no tvs in the headrest. The flight crew works slower then I have ever observed in my over 200 flights. Took them 1hr 40min to serve what they called "dinner", Delta and others knocks it out in 30!!! And don't get thirsty, You'll die of dehydration before you get a drop of water. They treat ice like its gold. 2 cubes for each drink. If u ask for more u get one more cube. Lol. It was just a horrible experience! I will never fly Air Canada again."

Cons: "Travelled from Toronto,CA to Lyon, FR and wasn't pleased with service, food, no coffee available plus drinks were limited. And on top of that when I arrived in Lyon, my baggage wasn't delivered from Toronto (was told at baggage claim desk). I paid $70 dollars for something that didn't get delivered."
Cons: "Had to pay 100$ for an extra bag because I was 4kg over weight then also had to transfer my bags myself during my layover. There was no entertainment on a long haul flight from London to Toronto. And zero space on the lonhaul flight. The least space on a plane I’ve ever had and I fly almost every week. I will never fly air transat again unless absolutely necessary."
Cons: "The seats for Club class are not comfortable."

Cons: "Video system was broken, including ability to charge devices. Seats are too small for adults."
Pros: "Crew professional despite longest flight of my life"
Cons: "The personal screens weren’t working, not even the USB chargers! We knew right away upon boarding but crew likely lied to us telling us they would come on above 10,000ft. They never did, electrical problem apparently. Unacceptable on a transatlantic flight. To add insult to injury some teenager got separated from his parents in the confusing Rome terminal, likely in the bathroom. Was 30 minutes late boarding and because his suitcase was on board we couldn’t leave until they found him or his bag. We therefore missed our takeoff window and left 70 minutes late! So a 9 Hour flight with no infotainment or WiFi or charging became a 10 Hour flight from hell with terrible food to boot."
Pros: "Club class was worth the upgrade purchase. Friendly staff. Continual service. Comfortable. decent movie selection."
Cons: "Screaming baby. But can’t do much about that."
Pros: "Awesome flight and service"
Pros: "The food is excellent, the entertainment contains newest movies."
Cons: "The seats are somewhat small, and there was no way to do the check in online which meant we had to wait in line to do the check in at the airport. It was fast though"
Pros: "I liked having enough leg room. I liked the movie choices. The crew were always ready to get me what I needed. They were efficient"
Cons: "I didn’t like the tv show choices shown. The descent was very uncomfortable. The flight felt very long and more food options would have been nice. The plane had wifi that we couldn’t use which was frustrating. The cabin got a little cold at times"

Pros: "Personnel serviable et professionnel"
Cons: "One jour late on schedule"
Pros: "Staff was super nice"
Cons: "Too small"
Pros: "I hope the Air Transat stop cheeting and the coverlet punish it"

Pros: "Great service, decent food, wonderful staff!"
Cons: "Flight delay, seemed it could have been avoided. Whenever you hear technical reasons it becomes non descriptive and reasons for waiting another 60 min are questionable."
Pros: "IT went up and down at the proper time."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable. My feeling is they were designed to be in the reclining as the headrest can not be reached comfortably in the upright position."
Pros: "Staff was amazing. We were delayed in Rome but our connecting flight to Toronto waited for us."
Pros: "It was a mediocre flight, what can I say: minimal leg room, right isle spaces and not nearly enough room to be comfortable. The in flight accommodation was a nice touch. No snacks but free soda/juice/water provided"
Cons: "Nearly zero personal space. The leg room was so minimal for a woman of 5'6 that when the lovely person in front of me reclined I had no choice but to invade the person next to me. There were no snacks provided and overall an uncomfortable experience."
Cons: "Delayed for 90 min"
Pros: "Entertainment, movies etc."
Cons: "Cramped seat"
Pros: "Staff in Dublin airport were very helpful helped me with my ETA very pleasant and efficient"
Cons: "Very very disappointed and angered at how our flight was handled after being delayed at no fault of my own my outbound flight was delayed from Dublin we were told our connecting flight would be organized and waiting for us. Upon arrival I was told I had 30mins until my connecting flight took off, stressed, tired and emotional I rushed through the airport and asked a member of staff to help me. This man was helpful he took me past the while queue and took me to the check in desk and told me I would be served asap. This is where my trip took a turn for the worst. Bare in mind I had been awake for 18 hours I was tired and stressed, the lady at the check in desk was snappy, rude and unhelpful. She read my boarding card and told me I would not be getting on the flight, she wrote me a hotel card and a voucher for food and wasn't very helpful. I began to cry and explained my father was already in Toronto waiting for me and she said I would not be flying. Very upset I walked off and started to cry. A few minutes later a lady who I flew with ran over and told me the lady had read my boarding pass wrong and thought I was on the inbound Tel Aviv flight and had wrongly dismissed me, then I was taken to another desk where staff had no clue what time my flight was at even though they had a computer system in front of them. Very very poor communication between staff with little attention paid to my flying details. My case was then taken by staff and my boarding pass then when the staff finally worked out what flight I was going on they asked for my suitcase to which I replied you already took my case and put into onto the conveyor , all staff denied taking my case or boarding pass which lead me to become more stressed that my luggage would be lost in transit and added to my stressful situation. Finally a lady guided us to our gate for our flight without knowing whether we would make the flight or not. After running round numerous air transat gates we found the gate we were supposed to be at even though the screen said the flight was for nice in France. Totally confusing and frustrating! I had the worst experience this day and will definitely not be flying with air transat or recommending it to anyone after the total disorganising and lack of communication between staff who were unhelpful and added to my stress. Bathrooms were also disgraceful, very unclean dirty and messy, no toilet roll and bins were full and messy. My lunch option was no longer available and I had to eat something I didn't want ."
Pros: "Not individual screens on every seat... i am traveling with 2 young kids so they need some entertainment to keep them calm during a 4 hour flight. My kids are in the Kids club... no difference in whatsoever.... no free chips...no nothing.... I bought chocolates and they made me pay for. The cabin AC was way too cold my daughter was freezing. I asked a blanket for her they told me it was $11. 00 O said ok fine. They forgot me after 45 minutes she remembered and she felt bad so she gave the blanket for free."
Pros: "the aircraft was much more comfortable than my seat with WOW air. and the monitor with the entertainment was actually working (was not on WOW air) and I had ear phones which worked with it so I actually could watch it. They gave us free water twice while we were delayed. WOW air charged for their bottle of water!"
Cons: "Most passengers could not take advantage of the entertainment on board. The steward/stewardesses did not come around and offer ear phones even at a price. I pressed a call button to get some water for to take a pill... three times and no one came. I would have gone back to where they were seated and asked personally but the seat belt sign was on... I did not sense there was any tumbulence but who knows. I flew from Paris to Montreal with an hour and a half layover in Montreal so I can connect to a flight to Toronto. Not the airlines fault ... our flight from Lyon was delayed.. but they (WHO the Canadian government) insisted my baggage had to be collected from the Lyon flgiht by myself and re-checked in for the Toronto flight, and thus I had to race across the huge airport to do that. Then I had to go through customs and then security (line ups of about two hundred people and waits of about 20 minutes) . Then I was supposed to catch my connecting flgiht at Gate A67 ... that is the 67th gate of 68 gates at this terminal. By the time I got out of the security line i was hearing the ominous " final boarding call for Air Transat Flight 276 to Toronto"!!!! I am 62 year old semi-fit woman with two bags running the posted "8 minute walk: to that 67th Gate. I made it with three winded young people who similarly were begging the Air Transat staff not to take off without the others of us who were still in the security line but booked on that flght. They waited. Then we could not get clearnance to land in Toronto... and so... we were delayed going to Toronto to... and $30 in parking later... my son got me home. Surely the Montreal Airport needs and "express line" through customs and security for people needing to catch connecting flghts or any flght about to take off! Also the Airport should be providing a trolly or something for passengers who have to board planes in those gates so very far from the security entrance to A gate!!! i am happy to walk it when I was not time pressured but in situations like this one... running could cause someone in poorer health a heart attack."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "No space between seats and food could be better when flying over 8 hours."
Pros: "Good efficient crew!"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Super new and clean planes. Crew extremely nice and the best entertainment package included!"
Pros: "Great crew, food and complimentary wine."
Cons: "Cramped seating, but not moreso than other airlines."
Pros: "The rest of the journey was fine, and the crew were great."
Cons: "I felt that the Rome airport manager on duty acted punitively towards me. I was admittedly trying to bring a carry on bag that was perhaps just slightly too large. But as soon as she saw me with it, she walked over the agent who was helping me and inserted herself in my check in process. This ended up in 35 minutes of phones between herself and U.S. an Canadian immigration, where I was forced to send travel documents for the whole of the 2014 and asked which countries I travelled to in 2004. She then told me my passport had been declared stolen but that I would be allowed to board my flight. I don't know what the story is, but I guarantee if I hadn't caught her eye by being a bit cheeky with my bag, none of those phone calls would have ensued. It was a deeply upsetting and unecessary experience and I plan to request a formal explanation of how the situation escalated so drastically."
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortably seated and quality entertainment."
Cons: "Should consider providing meals to children under 12yo first (for coach seating) so that they have choice of meal. My 10 year old daughter was the 3rd last served her meal on this flight when only 1 option was left. She was Ok with it, but likely because she was so hungry by then. I can see how such a situation could have been potentially very stressful for a family..."
Pros: "Great hostesses very friendly"
Cons: "Very poor meals and entertainment"
Cons: "1 hour delay while sitting inside the plane. No snack nothing to eat"
Cons: "After the family and priority boarding, there was absolutely no organization of which rows would be lining up to board the shuttle to the tarmack. My ticket and my boyfriend's ticket also both read as "Unable to board" and with a few clicks on the computer off to the side, we were fine but got no explanation as to why that occured."
Pros: "bel atterrissage smooth, staff gentils. Vraiment bien."
Cons: "Un peu froid dans l'avion. Je ne filais pas cela n'a pas aidé mais les autres passagers aussi ont mis un manteau."
Pros: "Non-stop Lots of movie choices Two meals/snacks were free On time departure"
Cons: "Unable to confirm return flight online from Paris Seating is just soooooo cramped and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Having to check my carry on bag that all other airlines allow as carry on"
Pros: "Options plus upgrade respected during boarding. Food served during flight was decent. Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2.5 hours. Few update announcements at gate. Almost 2 hours onboard before being offered a beverage. Too many interruptions in-flight (i.e. snack, drink, meal, customs forms, headsets, another snack, captain announcements). Cabin lights turned on and snack served 2 hours before landing (corresponding to a time of midnight at the departure airport)."
Pros: "Great service. Departure on time. Decent food. Ambient lighting to allow for sleeping or focused reading."
Cons: "Seats could be a bit more comfortable."
Pros: "Cheaper?? Worth it???"
Cons: "Food is terrible. The kids won't eat the soaked sandwiches. Only candy and sweet juices available for kids. No window on row 8 and 9 in these planes!!! I alone travel with 2 kids!!! Doesn't every kid want a window seat? Nice move checkin team to put us on these row on each flight segment!! Rude old people flying in row ahead of us. Of course THEY know how to raise kids. Of course they will not change seats with us... their comfort is too precious."
Pros: "The plane They were on time. Way better than Air Canada!!!"
Cons: "Didn't like the food that much Some crew members weren't very polite."
Pros: "Landings! Seriously the pilots did a great job."
Cons: "Seats too close together. Could not get comfortable for sleep"
Pros: "Decent movie selection. Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "POOR HYGIENE: I was seated next to the toilets. Some people used the toilet before takeoff. I saw that all the hand towels fell INTO the toilet bowl after takeoff. I changed seats, but when I went to that same toilet, someone (a flight attendant, I assume), put all the damp hand towels back and people were using them after washing their hands! UGH. BAD FOOD: Also, food was awful. All they had was junk food for purchase."
Pros: "The flight from YUL to CDG was fine."
Cons: "We had a flight into CDG from Split that arrived 2 hours before our flight was set to leave. Because of the size of CDG and the long wait for our baggage from the Split flight on Easy Jet, we arrived at the Air Transat desk 5 minutes after it closed. We then had to pay MORE than our round-trip tix to get a one-way to Quebec, then taxis and Bus to Montreal, where our car was. We could have gotten on our plane if you were just a tiny bit more understanding and flexible; we were willing to jettison anything in our bags that needed checking in order to bring them as carry-on. Not happy!! The agent who re-booked us said we are at least entiltled to a refund on the trip taxes for the tix we did not use. We were travelling with another couple, Lee and Betsy Lynd, who shared our experience."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Nice staff."
