I was able to get the trip in such a short time. Was in an emergency and needed to travel asap
The fee pricing.. unfortunately I understand late notice and the timeframe of cancellations and changes but I was having technical difficulties and unable to have a representative assist in a timely manner so to the business hours.

Very comfortable ride, but neither the power outlets nor the wifi worked onboard.
Power outlets and wifi should be in working condition always.
