Pros
Better in every way than flying. Probably better for the environment too. (It arrived early, not just on time, but that was not an option on this questionnaire.)
Cons
Your questionnaire.
Tips
Especially nice music selection on channel 4. Seats are a little narrow but there are only three in a row (all the way across!), not like a plane.

I really enjoyed the snacks, free wifi, outlets, and the friendliness of the staff!
Cons
After the pit stop, the outlets stopped working for a couple of hours.
Tips
The snacks get taken up pretty quickly! I would suggest taking a look at the refreshment section in the back of the bus during the beginning of the trip!
