There was an evil gray haired lady who spoke to me like I was a child. Telling me to put my purse in my larger carry-on bag. She never said good morning or anything nice. Evil old wench. The ladies who scanned my tickets were very nice.

Good airline if you become a $9 club member. Otherwise it's too much money for checked luggage.
