During check in, the staff member indicated he did not speak English and proceeded in Spanish. We were not told how to get to our gate. I would have appreciated all announcements (no matter how unimportant) to be translated into English. Custom forms were not offered in English to customers so I had to ask. There was no in flight entertainment which I knew ahead of time. It wasn’t clear customers had to purchase food or drink. Complimentary cups of water would have been nice for a 4 hour flight. Also the leg room was unbearable especially if the customer in front reclined their seat (which happened to me)

Flight staff was great! No free refreshments onboard but that was expected. We took off an hour late and waiting for our checked baggage to come around took forever so that was a little bit annoying.

Boarding announcement needs improvement. Didn't hear the zones being called and all of a sudden we hear that we need to on the plane!! Crazy!! Also you had to condense your personal and carry on! We were fine but what about the other passengers?
