Other Aurlines offer free carryon at this low price. What they don’t tell you also is that you have to check in at airport. You cannot get your boarding pass on line because you have no checked baggage. Other airlines are not this way.

Boarding was delayed by 2 hours due to mechanical issues. A new plane was brought in from the hanger. That staff was great at assisting others find alternate flights to make their connecting flights. They were very accommodating, kept us up to date and offered us snacks and water.
