“For both round-trip segments the flight was very much on time and they now offer economy plus as an option with lots of leg room. Meals were ok and the staff very cordial. I have to say it is much improved and would fly them again. However it may still be a gamble in terms of on time departures,” writes one of the most recent positive Santa Barbara Airlines reviews.
