You don't get to have brunch in an airplane every day, and being able to explore the cockpit makes it a pretty unique deal. The time of the day was great too, as there were few people when we arrived and so service was quick...More

I ordered 2 salads to go. On the phone they said 20 minutes. It took 1 hour and 20 minutes. I'm pregnant and was starving. They didn't even discount the meal. I'm in the service industry. That's a bad move.
