I had to pay for my baggage being 13 pounds over weight, $100 was too much to pay.

Feb 12, 2020

My luggage was very roughly handled! My instant pot I had packed in my checked luggage was broken and the outside of my suitcase which looked brand new before is now full of rips. The stroller I had gate checked was also broken; it was packed in a travel bag too.

The flight attendants could have been more pleasant. One male frowned the whole time and refused to answer questions. My flight back, a female was the same
