The take off was timely, and the ride was very smooth. The arrival schedule was adhered to. However, the terminal point at NY did not help in getting a ready taxi to my hotel. This may need some improvement. Best regards, Bamidele Ilebani.

You left a bus load of people stranded in Dillon south Carolina for 5 hours with no information about when or if we would get to our destinations. I still have not received any compensation for this ordeal. Your company is quick to take my money but won't take care of your mistakes and appreciate the people that use your company. I am so mad and I am also sure that this note will go unanswered.
