We have a 5 hr flight to Minneapolis and the a 55 min flight to Des Moines. We paid for upgrade seating with more leg room......best $$$ I have spent. We had lots f eg room and each seat had a flip-up tv monitor with free movies or tv, which really made the 5 hr flight go by quickly.
Got in Des Moines at 11:00 pm and we were home about midnight.

Black ice, hard packed snow and crazy drivers made the experience frightful, but ...
