I non-reved on SONG this morning (SUN/29th) ATL
and had a very nice experience. I was prepared to not like it and ended up thinking that it is a very nice product.
-We left 10 minutes late after waiting for 6 connecting passengers.
-We pulled into the gate in JFK
exactly on time.
-The aircraft was about 60% full before non-revs.
gate agents said that they normally see larger loads and often have oversales, but that SUN was normally a good day to non-rev.
's were very friendly as were the gate agents.
-The interior was bright and clean.
-The SEATROOM was SPACIOUS by coach standards. At 6'3'' my knees did not touch the seat ahead of me even when that seat was reclined.
-Gameboys were passed out.
-The food menu had more choices than I expected and was relatively reasonable at $1 to $3 per item. As an example an "organic " apple was $1.
-The overhead bins were larger than the mainline 757's.
Song is a better product than a mainline 757 seat. The price is better. The service is better. And the legroom is better (My number #1 issue).
