I took US 1578 from SAN-PHX Friday 5/15 and couldn't believe how slow the pilot taxied the A321. When the aircraft came into SAN, it appeared to be standing still as it approached the gate. When arriving in PHX it took 15 minutes to taxi from west end of runway 25 to the gate on terminal 4. While going on the crossover from the south to north sides of the airport, clearly we were traveling slower than baggage tugs. When traveling eastbound to the gate, the pilot kept hitting the brakes every 5-10 second to keep the taxi speed low. The flight was late and don't think there was a gate occupancy problem.
Then it took over 10 minutes for those of us in the back section of the A321 to start moving toward the exit.
I was surprised to see US had no IFE that I could see on that aircraft.
