5+ hour mechanical delay, no compensation or apology. Finally got on a different flight standby. Man was vaping on plane before departure. He was reprimanded twice but was incoherent and they kept him on the plane passed out in the emergency exit row. Not a safe decision.

Unfriendly staff, the pilot never announced anything during the entire flight including we’re at altitude, what the weather was like at the destination how much time is left if we were ahead or behind schedule etc. Very funny gay gene flight crew.
