All the damn fees. $15 just to check one bag?


Not to mention the flight experience is garbage. I don't mind the layovers. But then there's the long *$% security checkpoints and overpriced food inthe terminals.


BWI airport > _____ though

Southwest is the best and they have the best commercials. They just need to start offering more flights to more airports in more cities. If I could I'd flywith them everytime.

although Southwest feels like you are riding a giant school bus with wings (the imfamous line-ups), it is definitely the best airline to fly...they have gottenmuch better since implementing some structure with the numbering system...
airlines charging to check a bag is crazy...next thing they will be charging for carry-ons!

I know how you feel. I was a 15 hour flight away from home and only had $5. Couldn't buy any food so I had a crunch bar @ 2.99

I hate how I booked my flight to Greece during a "sale" only to find the price go down (a couple hundred bucks, too) AFTER the sale....like who toutsa sale and then lowers the price afterward?
