    Bummer. I'd hoped to give them a try someday, glad I didn't get caught up.

    Interesting aircraft to see go by my tower, I see about half of the arrivals to LAX, the final for the south complex there is just south of my field. Bright purple/pink airplane, tough to miss.

    I know someone who flew WOW once and they said that even Spirit Airlines was better.

    So you're sitting at the airport stranded holding a worthless WOW ticket. They make an announcement that Airline B is offering to accept your ticket on a flight to your destination... But it's on a 737 Max 8.. Are you going for it??
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Saw on the evening news WOW suggested contacting your CC company for a refund.

    Flew with them to Iceland a couple years ago. They were no better or worse than any other airline except for the flight attendants, who were all hot.

    Sounds like a loss to society then.
