not as good coming back to JFK as it was going to
Pros: The positive was the overall flight was fine and the staff (on ground and in air) were pleasant.
Cons: The negative was that we left almost an hour late because we were told we were waiting for a few late passengers. WHAT airline does that? Usually if you are late, the door closes and that is it. Also, because this isn't a "mainstream" airline, the check-in desk was at the furthest point of the terminal and the gate was also at the other farthest end. Lastly, when we arrived at JFK, we waited a full hour at the baggage carousel for our bags to arrive. Now that could be JFK's fault but at 11 pm at night on a Friday, it shouldn't take until midnight to get bags from a flight. Even though we saved money by flying XL, we won't be flying them again. It was too stressful dealing with the ridiculous amount of time it took to return home. Also, having to arrive at least 4 hours earlier than the departure time to wait in line to get seat assignments/check-in just isn't worth it. Oh, and they are VERY strict about the luggage weight requirements. Plan accordingly if you want to bring wine back from France.
