Pros: "yes"
Read more about Alaska Airlines
Pros: "yes"
Pros: "First class was A+"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Flight on time and not wait 30 min on the runway to get to a gate once landed"
Cons: "The plane was VERY hot - uncomfortably so."
Cons: "Alaska airlines delayed the flights by at least an hour both ways SFO-Newark. The Alaska terminal at Newark is a very poor experience."
Cons: "The entire flight crew was RUDE! Rolling their eyes at passengers constantly no matter what you asked them, shoving drinks at you, snatching trash from you, and rude. Very disappointed in Alaska!"
Pros: "Nice blue lighting. Some crew members were nice."
Cons: "Some crew members were not very cordial. One totally ran into my mom while my mom was trying to let the middle seat out. Granted the flight attendant was going backwards but she didn’t even apologize. No food on a six hour flight. The seats were really narrow and so was the aisle. Not a fan"
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Pros: "The crew was IMPECCABLE. Peggy, John, and Kristin are true professionals with the utmost sincerity and kindness, that is extremely appreciated during travel."
Cons: "The Newark airport staff was rude and made us, as passengers, feel like we were an inconvenience to them as we were going through security. Not sure if this is just the “east coast” mentality, but we could have done without the attitude when just trying to get into the TSA Precheck line."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 45 minutes"
Cons: "No problems on the flight."
Cons: "Assigned seats."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Old plane with very poorly cushioned seats. no entertainment. charges for everything."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Second time in a row flight status (delayed) was not updated until slightly before boarding was scheduled to begin."
Cons: "Blankets"
Cons: "We sat onboard for two hours not being told at first what the holdup was. We were then told there was an issue getting a motorized wheelchair stored in cargo. The only indication about the delay was this. If a customer is traveling with this need I would presume the airline knows in advance so why was it a problem and a surprise which delayed a plane full of people for two hours. People missed connections etc. Not good! And barely any updates"
Cons: "2 hours late, with no response as to why."
Pros: "After the purchase, Alaska is using Virgin planes, which are very nice - comfy, well appointed, and with the fun lighting."
Cons: "This is the second time in 3 flights with Alaska that they’ve bumped my seat at boarding time from a nice aisle near the front to a window near the restrooms. I’d gladly have volunteered if asked, but they didn’t ask. This most recent flight, the beverage service was extremely slow - it took nearly an hour for them to get down to my relocated seat. By then, it was nearly time to land, so I barely had time to finish. I’ve noticed the cups are smaller now as well. I usually fly rather than drive for the holidays, I think I’m done with flying."
Pros: "Entertainment offerings, except for lack of music."
Cons: "As usual, the seats are crammed together. They ran out of cups, so we were told to keep the ones we had. We did, however was to no avail. They did not make a second pass with water or other drink offerings on this 5 1/2 flight. The bathroom was a mess."
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "sweltering temperatures when boarding; delayed departure"
Pros: "Quick boarding process, comfortable economy seats with leg room and smooth flight from nyc to sfo."
Cons: "Miss beverage service and free headsets. Not much else to complain about."
Pros: "I did not like anything. The worst experience. I checked in through your site and got 11F seat which was changed when I took boarding card at airport to 32F. Later I came to know that they sold my seat even after my check in. So pathetic behavior. Never recommend this airline. They should learn from some of the Asian airlines."
Pros: "Personal service from ticket agent"
Cons: "Being referred to call the 800 number for a ticket issue instead of helping me at the counter. Wasted half an hour. 2nd ticket agent made sure I didn't miss my flight."
Cons: "Crew was very unpleasant."
Pros: "Excellent take off and landing."
Cons: "They had ressigned seats and put me in the middle of a full row, in front of the emergency exit, so the seat would not recline. The head rest was made for a tall man, and its position made me lean forward until my neck hurt. The movie selections were good, but the earphone jack didn't work well enough to hear the dialog. They let me move to another seat and the earphones didn't work there either. After trying two different earphones they concluded the jack was bad. Also the seats were smaller and there was less leg room than the Alaska flight going out."
Pros: "No free WiFi, no hand soap in the restroom, my chair would not recline, no free snacks thank god for the free water and coffee, $9 cheese plate half of which was inedible, no power outlets or usb charging ports. And the flight attendants were so rude, a simple question was met with short, hostile replies and rhetorical questions instead of friendly respnoses. I WILL NEVER FLY ALASKA AIR AGAIN."
Cons: "No free WiFi, no hand soap in the restroom, my chair would not recline, no free snacks thank god for the free water and coffee, $9 cheese plate half of which was inedible, no power outlets or usb charging ports. And the flight attendants were so rude, a simple question was met with short, hostile replies and rhetorical questions instead of friendly respnoses. I WILL NEVER FLY ALASKA AIR AGAIN."
Cons: "No entertainment i.e TV No food Flight delayed for 2.5 hours with prior notice until just few minutes the boarding time"
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 5 hours. My all schedule had to be changed. I had to wait at Newark airport for 6 hours with my two little children. I want denied board compensation. Alaska has to fix it. I am very upset about this flight."
Pros: "The festive yet relaxing lighting during boatding, the great in flight movies, the friendly helpful staff, our generous legroom, the comfier than usual seats, the food ordering system."
Cons: "The food quality could be improved with some more organic options."
Pros: "Flight from Newark to SanFran was smooth, and entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t overly welcoming (though certainly not rude at all), and boarding was rushed at the gate just to stand in huge line waiting to get on aircraft."
Pros: "Early boarding"
Cons: "Plane was late no food, no blankets and screwed up checking my bags to Bangkok."
Pros: "Liked the seats. Liked the service. The food on my previous flight HX60 was better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Other than that, nothing to complain about. Like I said, ordinary flight."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "They don’t give enough drink"
Pros: "Great inflight crew and efficient way of ordering snacks and beverages"
Cons: "Inefficient boarding at Newark. Flight delays getting onto to plane and as well as landing."
Pros: "Quick"
Cons: "Mileage points wouldn’t give me my free bags happened multiple times"
Cons: "No comfort given to passengers despite 2.5 hr delay in leaving and another 1 hr on the ground after landing"
Pros: "Movie selection and food"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "The food order concept"

Pros: "It was excellent. They even waived the baggage fee!"
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "Free movies"

Pros: "Entertainment, prompt service of flight attendant"
Cons: "Delay of flight, boarding was very long wait"
Pros: "Ummm...I bought a ticket on Alaskan and it ended up being a Virgin aircraft."
Cons: "There wasn’t a power outlet at my seat."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was down. They ran out of food. They didn’t tell us the tv was down until after they had us check our carry on so I couldn’t even get my book"
Pros: "Everything was great! This was my first time flying Alaska Air and I could not have had a better trip! Everything ran according to schedule, I was comfortable during the flight, slept the entire time, staff was great!"
Cons: "The woman making announcements did not specifically announce the duration of the flight as we were departing. I was able to figure it out on the map option on the screen, but I would've liked to hear it verbally. Only suggestion I would have is an announcement on the plane for which baggage claim belt our luggage would come out of. I may not have heard it though, if there was an announcement. It was not difficult at all to figure out once I was in the baggage claim area, however if this was known while we were still on the flight, I prefer to know this info!"
Pros: "I didnt eat so I am not sure regarding the food quality and i didnt had a headphones so i couldn't enjoy the entertainment."
Pros: "Nice movies Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Noisy air con Seat not reclining Headphone jack not working No storage space"
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska. The crews are generally nice and the leather seats are comfortable, even in cattle class. I like that they often give out the Biscoff biscuits, yum. I had lots of room on several of my flights, on one of them I had an entire row to myself, which was awesome."
Cons: "The fact that even on 5+ hour-long flights they still charge for the food is a little silly to me. But maybe that's how they all do these days. Still, it's unfortunate, or, it might have been nice to have more than one snack served up on such a long flight. The wifi is a little hard to maneuver, even with an instruction card. The Go-go inflight thing is cool, but they don't really advertise that you need to download the app while you're still on the ground...which they should advertise in their concourses or something."
Pros: "It was quick and easy."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The flight from EWR to MSP was extremely quiet. No loud engine noises."
Cons: "We were vert disappointed at the Newark Airport - the Delta Club was closed and there had been no notification prior to arriving at the airport. I certainly missed that early morning coffee."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Very spacious."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Flight was late for one hour"
Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."
Cons: "An officious crew who said they had a 'seat belt detector' to tell if people's seatbelts were fastened. A late flight... with lies about the reason for the delay."
Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Awesome"
Cons: "Issues with connecting flights so had to sit in different place, seat was broken"
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great! We had rough weather for the entire flight, and they handled everything great"

Cons: "Sitting in the last row where my seat didn’t recline and it was loud and no window. It was claustrophobic!"
Cons: "To many screaming kids"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing worked. Charging station. Tv. They charge for everything. Customer service is poor. I get Way more for my money flying a budget airline!"
Pros: "I was very impressed with the flight attendants. They were very pleasant & very attentive to the guests. The premium seats were very comfortable. The only disappointment was the chicken dinner but the ice cream dessert & refreshments were wonderful."
Pros: "Boarding was quick Flight experience was good"
Cons: "Leg space was less Take off got delayed"
Pros: "Landed safely."

Pros: "Great entertainment offering plus liked that I was able to charge my phone at the same time."
Cons: "Nothing to add"
Pros: "I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened."
Cons: "The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."
Pros: "Flight team were wonderful!"
Cons: "the short connection screwed me"
Pros: "The boarding didn’t take long at all. The staff and crew were very pleasant and polite. Everything was done in a timely manner."
Cons: "Well you get what you pay for so I’m not really complaining here. The economy seating was a bit cramped. I’m 6 foot and it was not comfortable for me. I can only imagine how it eould be for people taller and bigger than me. Flight was too short for meas. Snacks were good though."

Pros: "After 4 delayed and missed flights they did put me in a motel"
Cons: "Trying to make arrangements and being on hold for 30 to 53 minutes several times all while trying to second guess flights. Not being allowed on a flight after being bumped several times because only 1st class seats were available . Sprinting through the airport with all luggage only to be told I couldon't not board even though the flight did not leave for 5 more minutes"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed indefinitely. Delta supposedly booked me on united flight but made an error."
Pros: "First class stewardess was excellent."
Cons: "Well, you could have felt that when there is an unprecedented pandemic illness and federal guidance against travel that you don't doubly penalize customers who (1) cannot travel due to the extraordinary public health crisis of COVID 19 and, (2) are devastated that he cannot celebrate his best friend's 40th birthday despite being the thing he looked forward to for months and would love to use a travel voucher in the future when this whole thing eventually blows over. Imagine what your company could gain by being good."
Pros: "Prompt departure and arrival. Efficient inflight crew. Simple inflight entertainment on personal devices."
Cons: "Snacks. Please serve basic snacks sun country"
Cons: "Late flight, minimal beverage service....on a four hours on a plane one would expect at least a second pass through the cabin with water"
Cons: "Timely communication"
Pros: "Super quick boarding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed at take off and at deplaning and we were never told why or even that we were delayed. We just sat there"
Pros: "New plane, very comfortable. Crew handled weather delay well."
Cons: "EWR Terminal B3 has the worst TSA capacity I’ve seen in a long time - understaffed, no TSA PreCheck (& no option to go through a different security check point), resulting in very slow lines from inadequately shepherded inexperienced international travelers. I won’t take Sun Country again thru’ EWR"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. No free snack. $40 for a carry on!"
Cons: "WiFi, friendliness, food options"
Pros: "It landed early."
Cons: "Some complimentary snacks. No extra fee for online check-in. It’s cheaper to you to allow people to check themselves in online than make people check in at the desk that was woefully understaffed. Made it a terrible experience for all"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for five hours with no communication from sun country reps"
Cons: "Terrible delays. Charged me $400 for canceling the flight although it’s their mistake for delays. Then i booked Sun Country flight and didn’t make it. They harmed me $200 and gave me vouchers. Spent $1600 in one day to make it to my destination. Horrible experience."
Pros: "The crew did their jobs just fine. Not especially hospitable but they didn’t do anything “wrong” per say."
Cons: "I am in shock over how much I ended up paying for my checked bag and personal item. I will never fly sun country again for a trip longer than 72 hours. The flight was MISERABLY cold."
Pros: "Terrible online check in process 10 hour delay!"
Pros: "Great service by the flight attendants."
Cons: "Having to pay 35 dollars both ways to check in my luggage. Since they were charging 40 to take it on board as a carryon."
Cons: "Loss our luggage. Long check in lines. Almost missed flight"
Pros: "Friendly crew and right on time. It was an easy travel experience."
Cons: "Tight leg room and paying to choose my seat in order to check in online"
Pros: "Nothing. Everything was mismanaged and poorly handled."
Cons: "The incompetency"
Cons: "There wasn’t a selection for “not applicable” so I gave low stars where the item didn’t exist I.e. entertainment."
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment, but that wasn't expected. Why can't we put NA for those items in the ratings?"
Pros: "One of the best airlines"
Cons: "Seats are SO uncomfortable."
Cons: "What a surprise at the Sky Cap that I needed to be charged for a carry on....total of $50 for my check in and carry on. What's worse, is that I had to CHECK my carry on because you only allow a minimal # of carry ons. This is certainly a negative for me flying with SunCountry again."
Pros: "Awesome service"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew. Comfortable seats. Everything was on time. Checked bags were delivered quickly."
Cons: "I don’t like having to pay $15 to pick my seat, which is required to check in ahead of time online. Don’t pay the $15 to pick your seat, you don’t get to check in. That feels like a Spirit Airlines move. Sun Country is better than that. Food was offered. It would be nice if they offered some in-flight entertainment via WiFi."
Pros: "The plane was not full so seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Check in line was really long. But luckily the terminal was small so I still made it to my flight on time."
Pros: "non stop flights okay"
Cons: "gate was changed 4 times without any assistance for a senior citizen travelor; Kayak placed my order in the wrong name, charged my credit card and I was assessed several fees to get it corrected! also had to pay fees for seat and luggage not taken care if when I made reservations with kayak. The order for a wheelchair was not placed from Kayak even though I submitted it on Kayaks original order."
Pros: "I had a seat toward the front, so I boarded early-ish, which went smoothly."
Cons: "Seating was incredibly uncomfortable. The bottom cushion was worn down, so my butt was sore after just a three hour flight. Also, my neck and back were in pain after getting off the flight. I am in my 20's and don't really get sore neck or back, but the seats were just that bad. However, I did have JUST enough leg room even though I am 6'4". I'll probably avoid this airline in the future just for the horrid seats alone."
Cons: "I was in the 7th row and by the time they got to me with food/beverages they were out of burgers and sandwiches."
Pros: "It was very crowded, but it went off without a hitch."
Cons: "It was very crowded."
Pros: "the crew were good. and they gave us $20 meal vouchers and $200 travel vouchers"
Cons: "the airplane broke in boston and we were stuck there for 7 hours before we could board."
Pros: "Making the connection was super easy since was very close to arriving gate. On time and had an aisle seat even tho booked last minute and couldn't pick myself"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Sun Country Air cancelled my flight and did not have any other flight for me to take AT ALL. They refused to compensate me for the more than double I had to pay to get home after that."
Cons: "after speaking with customer service, they seemed incompetent and unable to resolve issues of any kind. I also spoke with management and filed a complaint and no one there is willing to take responsibility for their actions or for my inconvenience. I plan on fighting them until they do. NEVER FLY THIS AIRLINE"
Pros: "2nd leg of flight... Again, Everything was great, no complaints. The roomy, leather seats made the 21/2 hr flight easy. The crew was very respectful and professional. The way flying is suppose to be. Thank you. John"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Flight on time and smaller airports"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Straight flight"
Pros: "Employees were courteous."
Cons: "Difficult to book seats because computer was malfunctioning; flight was one hour late, so we arrived at about midnight. Baggage was late coming off plane."
Pros: "I did not have food or entertainment so cannot rate those things."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "My Trip was good"
Pros: "flight attendants in first class were amazing!"
Pros: "Everything you would expect"
Cons: "Shorter flight so only a beverage included. I don't fly much but breakfast sandwich at 10am would be better than cheese burger."
Pros: "Price made it worth it! Boarding was quick. Staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Seats did not seem to recline and plane was a little old feeling."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class. First time ever doing that and it's the best way to go."
Pros: "Our flight was fairly early in the day and there were no lines to speak of!"
Pros: "Nothing. The experience was awful"
Cons: "The flight got delayed by over 4 hours without explaination as to why. There was no one to ask at the counter. When I called the number they said the wait time was 30 mins to speak with a Rep. As I was waiting and automated system started talking, saying the reason you have a longer wait than expected time is because Sun Country is trying to incorporate new innovations. You're reaction might be it's crazy and you're right it is. After all this I waited quietly the rest of the evening. Came time for on boarding, the team was highly UNTRAINED. I watched them switched TWO mothers with infants from line tonline multiple times the lines got out of control people were literally jumping lines. No sense of leadership nor organization. Literally take this as a warning from someone who has had multiple bad experiences with the same airlines in the last year and half. I am done with Sun Country!"
Pros: "Surly - LiftBridge - Fulton Beers (excellent selection) Great food selection Supporting local businesses, including SunCountry"
Cons: "I tried throughout the day to check in for the flight and pre-pay for a checked bag because it was cheaper to pre-pay on-line. Something was wrong with the Sun Country website, and so I wasn't able to do it. Naturally, they charged me the higher price for the checked bag because I was paying at the terminal. I told them that I had been trying all day to pay on-line, but they said that they could do nothing about it."
Cons: "Sun country needs accessible kiosks to chech in,,,,,,,,"
Pros: "We got the seats we chose"
Cons: "We couldn't check in until we got there because their website was having issues. It was very stressful."
Pros: "The gate crew had a wonderful sense of humor that helped people relax and just plain old have fun! The plane was clean and the crew all nice."
Cons: "Feeling like a sardine."
Pros: "I liked that the pilot introduced himself and the crew and his voice was comforting. The crew was friendly. I liked my aisle seating. leg room was great for me."
Cons: "This had nothing to do with the flight itself but the video players are rather expensive. I paid the $8 for one the first flight but I refused to pay again on the second flight. So I had no entertainment on from Minneapolis to JFK. I bought my own meal onto the plane. Also the ground crew in Minneapolis seemed unorganized during boarding."

I'll be back

It was fine. I didn't love the food but it was at least a real attempt at serving a meal, unlike my earlier flight from Nashville to Dallas.

Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Stop charging for wifi. Jet blue has free wifi on domestic flight"
Cons: "Muy puntual"
Pros: "the crew was amazing. Seats needs to be more comfortable."
Cons: "seat needs to be more comfortable."
Pros: "Crew and pilot were great."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely PACKED during the peak of a global pandemic. Completely irresponsible to not have people spaced out by at least one seat."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "The WiFi would not connect for two of my flights. I wanted to watch movies"
Pros: "I was very appreciative that the cabin crew went through the cabin prior to take off to check that everyone was wearing a mask properly (covering mouth AND nose). I flew United a few weeks ago and had to politely ask the person next to me both on return and departing flight to make sure the mask covered thier nose. A lot of people in the cabin weren't wearing masks properly and the crew didn't seem to care."
Pros: "The middle seat was left unoccupied to ensure social distancing."
Cons: "The sound wasn't working on the 2nd leg of my flight so I wasn't able to enjoy the music."
Pros: "Nothing. Will never fly American again"
Cons: "Better customer service at the gate."
Cons: "there was no social distancing"
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "More snack options"
Pros: "Nothing. It’s a terrible airline. Seriously, don’t book with them unless you’re desperate or you want to have an anxiety attack."
Cons: "American isn’t my preferred airline for obvious reasons (delays, notoriously bad service, old planes, and a lack of amenities like WiFi and tv’s), but now I’ll never spend my money with them again. They took me off an already delayed flight after I’d already boarded to examine my smart bag. I know that lithium batteries can’t be taken in the underbelly of the plane and I knew my bag would likely be checked at the gate (why I removed the battery and left it at home in the first place). When they asked me if I had a lithium battery in my bag I said “no.” They then gate checked the bag and allowed me on the plane. After everyone had been boarded (half an hour after we’d been scheduled to take off) they then called my name out on the speaker. I had to then de-board the plane and re-explain to staff that there was no lithium battery in my bag. The staff didn’t believe me citing the infallible logic: “there are ports so there’s a battery.” I told them again and again that the battery had been removed and the charging ports—while there—were inert as they weren’t attached to the battery. STILL, I had to remove all of my clothes from the bag, and open every single compartment (of which there were many) for them to allow me to get back onto the plane. They were telling me that they might have to “rebook the flight” if my bag couldn’t get on. I don’t think I need to explain how agitated/terrified that made me."

Cons: "Service was excellent"
Pros: "I like that I made it home alive."
Cons: "Everything about Departing and arriving was a Poor experience. I might not be using this particular airline again. 4 Airlines now on my list of do not use."
Pros: "No need to drive from OKC!!!"
Cons: "In 2 weeks, my husband and I had 4 flights with American and none of them went as planned.

Pros: "The flight left on time - I do appreciate that."
Cons: "We were forced to check our Uppababy Vista stroller at EWR departures that we hoped to check at the gate. Needless to say this made it difficult to get our toddler through security. At baggage claim only half our stroller was there - they had disconnected the seat from the wheels. Luckily we spotted what looked like a similar frame to ours at the gate when we landed. It then took another forty minutes for the baggage claim office person to go through security, to the arrival gate and back to baggage claim."

Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."
Pros: "The flight attendant lady from 1st class/Business held my suit jacket for me to grab on the way out. Simple thing, but very thoughtful and kind. Love it."
Cons: "The negatives are puny compared to what made me happy in this trip. Thanks AA! Please thank that nice lady for me!"

Cons: "No meal. Only a bag of pretzels and one drink. Even half a sandwich would have been acceptable."

Cons: "Change of airports from EWR-Oak to JFK/SFO after I had printed boarding passes. Got call from AA but when I picked up, no one was on the line. Equipment prob, they said. I think it was two half full planes and they screwed the EWR passengers. Manhattan was in gridlock because of UN session. I discovered change when I arrived to check luggage curbside at EWR. 3 hours of stop and go traffic to get there. See other box re kiosk problems. Boarding pass didn't have my TSA FTN so had to go back. Could not check luggage curbside. Got seat in last row when I noticed boarding pass had no seat assignment. They lost my luggage at SFO. There's more, but..."

Just be prepared and knowledgeable about this airline and other budget airlines and you will be satisfied. - pay for bags in advance, Try to weigh your checked bags before the airport, Bring snacks or drink on flight - otherwise you have to pay for it.

I'm not sure if this flight was now worth the original case posted."

Pros: "The outbound leg went well except for the very uncomfortable seats that are thinly padded and do not recline. We left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "The return trip left five hours late due to a faulty plane. I appreciate not using a plane that was mechanically not working.
