    All changes of departure time a message arrives on your phone. Consequently, there is no need to search for a company representative to clarify the reasons for flight delays. Everything is clear and understandable, which is why I try to buy tickets from the airline.

    Depart to Los Angeles from Las Vegas. Though a lot of the time he did not take, but I had time to assess the conditions of the airline. I really liked the service. Everything was on time. Service is no different from the classic companies: nuts, drinks ... Arrivals and departures were carried out from the main airports.
