I love Alaska and Horizon… even in the short flights, they always offer something… and everyone is cheerful and helpful. It was stormy weather but the flight was quite smooth… the pilots clearly moving up and down a wee bit to avoid turbulence.

Although Westchester Airport is smaller than others I love the convenience of location. Flight was great…got in about 20 min. ahead of schedule w/minimal turbulence. Only real downside is that none of the tv’s/airline wi-fi worked so unable to watch tv or movies.
