Long wait for baggage

Mar 15, 2018

It was a quick trip and I was happy with the service. I will not be getting basic economy again. I'll pay the money for coach. No carry on was convenient. Easy check in 24 hours in advance was a big point for me. Pre-paid for my luggage was awesome as well. Loved the options for my boarding pass on my phone. Very quick. All in all, a pretty good trip. Thank you.
