"Thought the plane was a little too small, arm was pressed against the door, and could not move very well."
"The advertisement was for the 'Diamond' experience. When we arrived, we were not afforded the option of flying in a Diamond aircraft. My wife paid a substantial amount of money and we had expectations based on the advertisement."
"Awesome experience! Will definitely do it again and purchase from Cloud 9 Living again!"
