I arrived at the gate just after the scheduled boarding time.
The gate area was light with activity; however, boarding had not started.
Within three minutes, the gate agent greeted the passengers and she informed them that boarding would begin shortly.
A couple minutes later, boarding started and I joined the line when my group was called.
Upon arrival at the podium, the agent asked me to scan my boarding pass. After I scanned it she thanked me and invited me to board.
A second gate agent put a gate check tag on my bag as I entered the jet way as the aircraft was a CR9 that does not accommodate roller bags.
I located my seat at the forward section of the economy cabin.
Boarding continued for a few minutes before the flight attendants announced that it was complete and they closed the door and prepared for departure.
After a five-minute taxi, the Captain announced that the plane was cleared for takeoff.
The aircraft is a CR9 regional jet. The seats are setup in a 2-2 configuration.
The aircraft includes a couple rows of main cabin extra seats; however, the additional legroom is not notable.
The seat was a standard slim line economy seat.
WiFi Entertainment was available on the flight. I did not utilize the service; however, the guy sitting next to me watched a movie throughout the flight without delays or other streaming issues.
In Flight Experience
About 10 minutes after the plane was in the air an announcement was made regarding the use of laptop computers and WiFi.
The flight attendants prepared the cabin for service at that time.
A flight attendant greeted me at my seat with and provided pretzels and offered a beverage. I requested Ginger Ale and she thanked me and she offered ice.
The soda was served chilled over ice on a cocktail napkin. The soda had a good taste.
The pretzels were fresh and salty.
The flight attendants circulated the cabin and one of them offered a second beverage when she picked up the first one.
An announcement was made about landing and the cabin was prepared.
A few minutes later, the plane landed and taxied to the gate.
Upon arrival at the gate, there was a short delay before the passengers could deplane.
The bags were delivered to the jet way a few minutes later.
My bag was returned without issue.
The Amazing Rocket City Adventure American Dallas Huntsville was good. It was a pleasant surprise that the flight attendants offered an additional beverage when they picked up the used glasses. The seat was comfortable for a regional jet and the experience was otherwise good.
