from a non-professional traveler, who only flies occasionally.
Last November I flew CO EWR-LAS and back (am doing it again this NOv also!). I enjoyed it a lot, but have a couple of comments and questions:
When I initially booked last August, the equipment listed for both directions was a 738 ( I believe). About two weeks later, I received notification that the equipment was now a 752 outbound, and a 753 returning and had to select my seats again. THIS year, I had to wait a bit to book, but had been scoping out the fare, and it looks like the exact same thing happened, so when I just booked it was the exact same thing! Is this normal?
As far as seat selection is concerned,I have about the same seats in coach - 24F going out, and 14A returning (on the redeye Thanksgiving night). 14A is an interesting seat - on the seat selector, the rows in front of the wing are all blue colored as ‘premium’ seats --all except 14AB(and 15EF)…and, which according to
the wonderful http://www.seatguru.com, is just a good a seat as the ‘premium’ seats. I had the same exact seat on the redeye last year, and it was very comfortable…Why do they do that?
I have a theory that just about ANY crew going to LAS is going to be relatively pleasant - I mean, they get to spend time in Las Vegas! I do give credit to the outbound crew- they were very concerned about the people being well watered before hitting the desert…well that…and it means less to count up for inventory! But the FA’s were pleasant without being sugary, did their jobs, and plus we got Cheerios for breakfast! Coming back, they were very unobtrusive after the initial snack/soda run, and the one FA was very helpful after I had zonked out with a can of 7UP in my hand and had spilled some on my blanket -quickly replacing it with a dry one! (also lucked out both directions as the middle seat was empty both ways - double pillows on the redeye!!!) My only problem was that they kept the damn video going all darn night - King of Queens after 3 am is NO fun to watch w/o sound!
CO is fine by me - Ill let you know after THIS trip!
