Have had economy for last few flights. Would like to go back to regular so I can get the window seat !!, Also would like to get the Pre Pass registration ... a few years ago they would add it to my ticket. Made things so easy .. I’m 70 and fly to South Texas at least three times a year to help my mother . Going to regular boarding and prep pass would make a wonderful flight..., excellent

Was required to check my carry-on bag at boarding time since I was in last group (Basic). This possibility should be presented at time of ticket purchase to plan accordingly.

Cheap Flights to Columbus

The capital of Ohio is often overlooked as a Midwest destination. This is a real shame as Columbus is steeped in history and boasts a youthful vibe and a thriving art scene. The Ohio State University campus is one of the largest in the country with 60,000 students, and the established gay scene also contributes to the buzz of the city.

There are galleries, theaters and restaurants, lots of festivals including a huge celebration on the 4th of July and plenty for sports fans and shopaholics to enjoy.

Spring and fall are ideal times to visit and winters are milder than in other Midwest cities, but average temperatures still dip below freezing in December, January and February, when flight and hotel prices are at their lowest.
