Excellent, on-time flight with good communication from crew.

Mar 4, 2020

It would be nice if they let each person check a bag for free since we paid for one checked bag and in the end had to check all 3 bags anyway but had to drag them thru the airport first. Supposedly no room left in the overhead storage but tons of people had there personal items stowed in there which took all the space up

Did not like that we had to check our bags at a cost and could not take carry on luggage.
