Flight was delayed by more than 1.5 hours because they were waiting for a replacement first officer to arrive from Las Vegas!!! Did not appreciate that at all!

The only negative comment I would make is the length of time it took for the luggage to arrive on the conveyor belt. Much too long.

Great flight and services

Tough-type plastic food containers are not easy to control in tight seat space -- pops onto floor, hard to retrieve -- plus plastic harms the environment.

I paid to upgrade because it looked like I had a seat in the back of the plane and that the flight was full. The plane was practically empty to upset that I paid the $99 for nothing. Not sure if I got played!
