Snacks-friendliest of drivers..
No one has control over the NYC traffic! On the way down same movie played twice...

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.)
Your questionnaire.
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!
After the pit stop, the outlets stopped working for a couple of hours.
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!

The staff were all wonderful and helpful.
Remove the seat belt to make it easier to sleep on.

Simple, easy, and I didn't have to worry about any part of it.
Clarity of gate/location on tickets.
Travel later at night, better bang for buck and everything runs smoother. If you have young children though, please do not do this.
