Staff was very friendly. Been a long time since I had two different crews so polite and all male crews? Not that it matters but just an observation

May 20, 2019

Although our first departing flight was delayed by almost 3 hours, the gate agents were helping people check connecting flights or rebooking on other flights & remained calm & helpful, which was amazing to me, as there were many frustrated customers. I complimented the fate agent who was there from start to finish continually making the delayed announcements & helping the majority of passengers, as she was so young but was helpful, skilled, calm, understanding, & efficient.
