Southwest at least allows you to have a free baggage. It's not the fault of the pilot but it also is very bumpy. The flight crew was fine and it's just the uncomfortable aspects of having my seat assignment changed and the extra charges for anything that makes it comfortable."

We were repeatedly and rudely dismissed 3 times, at 3 different levels, as if we were in the wrong to ask. If not for the kindness of a fellow passenger we would not have flown together. Very poor hospitality training."

Pros: "Nothing, worst flight I've ever had."
Cons: "Dried throw up on the floor in front of my seat.disgusting. SO MANY FLIES IN THE CABIN!!! Crew seemed like they hated their jobs, were NOT attentive. wasn't cleaned at all. Plane smelled.

Cons: "Literally every thing else"
