Did not like that I had to pay for a checked bag on one bag but it was necessary

Oct 7, 2018

The plane seats were nice but very small and I am only 5’4” and 115 lbs!

Avis rental car only problem! Ridiculously long line

May 21, 2018

I wish we had the ability to choose seats. I had to call and was on hold for several minutes because my 4 year old was by himself at the back of the plane.
