    Better everything....

    Easy to join ... yes a fee annually.... but the benefits outweigh the cost
    With these bozos, however, you run the risk of being "escorted" off the flight, sans baggage.

    I flew down in May from Jersey and boarding went fast.They are also asking folks to check their overstuffed carry on bag at the gate.Knowing it won't fit in the overhead bin anyway.

    I am planning to have a trip to DR shortly, JetBlue says if you buy the highest fare (The refundable ones), you get 2 free checked bags.

    What are your options? There is only one person I know who can walk on water.

    Ryanair tried that in Europe. They had to abandon it when passengers threatened to pee in their seats.

    Not surprising. Many Dominicans push the limits or weight on check-in bags and what they can carryon. Because of this airlines like JetBlue were forced to charge people. I saw one lady trying to carrying on three small bags. Not going to happen. Attendent in line told her no way. Isn't ignorance bliss? Wish we gringos could pull this off.
