Hot towels are on the longer range flights ex. IAD-ORD. JFK is a medium service destination so you get a full beverage service but none of the special extras. I've worked two I trips so far and it's been lots of fun. The feedback has been pretty good. It's nice to be offering a product I can be proud of.

Not very easy to pack too many niceties into a shorter duration flight! I hope they can sustain it. How are the first two batches of destinations doing? Any numbers published? Lots of capacity hitting the market all at once. I wish them well. Hope Independence dosen't get over ambitious too soon! Look forward to seeing them next month at PVD.

It is great to hear the Independence Air is stating such a high value of class not found on some airlines in first class. I believe that Independence Air will succeed as long as the highly please their customers such as yourself. I have a feeling that as soon as it gets its A319's and 320's it will be profitable and rise to the stance that Jet Blue now or even greater (but by this time Jet Blue will be higher then they are now ).

Flew them their second day of operations, with delays all over the East Coast due to WXR. They kept us all informed from the check in to the gate agent. Even the pilot came to the gate with a weather map and gave us all (Over 100 displaced passengers) a briefing. Then the gate crew raided a plane that was grounded and served all the goodies to us at the gate. I have flown them three times since and found their service to be outstanding.
Planes aren't busses, put service back into the air!

I flew them IAD-BOS and IAD-JAX so I guess they are the "longer flights" Had a friend fly them to ORF and she got bottled water, hot towel, and mint and another friend flew them to RDU and he got a beverage. Maybe Iairallie could explain the different services, I think they are awesome!!!!!
