Flight Review

Mar 9, 2020

Each leg of the flight was delayed 1 hour. Not good

Mar 7, 2020

Flight was good. Airport lines were long but the best part of the flight was the crew. The flight attendant was kind funny and attentive and was able to capture the attention of all passengers by making the safety message entertaining. First time I have flown Wisconsin Air but it won’t be the last.

I am on a knee scooter but it was no problem at all getting in or off the plane. It was great!!

Feb 12, 2020

Again, flight wasn't overcrowded and I was moved to a more comfortable seat away from someone who was obviously uncomfortable and congested with a cold. This enabled both passengers to be comfortable. TU !!

Terrible WiiFii

I, unfortunately, had to change my city of departure and I did not like the cost of that transaction.

Jan 4, 2020

Appreciated the customer service when one of the connections was delayed

Dec 27, 2019

the added fee for checked bags seems a bit much and paying more to board earlier is really dumb but I guess it makes some people feel more special.

Dec 27, 2019

Have bad back. Seats too uncomfortable.

Dec 20, 2019

My carryon bag was taken but others were not . Couldn’t see the difference in others that entered after me. Plus there was space for my bag in the overhead bin.

Love the new concourse at LGA

All went well

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Columbia

If you like the idea of spending more time at the airport bars and restaurants and less time navigating your way through security on your way to Columbia, just follow these suggestions:

  • Ensure your travel ID and boarding pass are easy to reach. You will be instructed to produce them straightaway.
  • You'll need to put your tunes on pause for a little while. Earphones and headphones need to be taken off and put in a bin to be X-rayed. The same goes for items such as heavy jackets and belts.
  • Laptops must be taken out of their cases and placed in a tub before being scanned.
  • When you get to the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to put all liquids, gels and creams in a separate tub for inspection. Make sure they're all stored in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Give some thought to your choice of footwear. Slippers are great because they're super easy to remove for the airport security checks. Try wearing some on your next flight!
  • Multi-tools and corkscrews are not permitted on board the aircraft. Pack them in your checked luggage to avoid forfeiting them at the airport security checkpoint.

No visit to the Palmetto State is complete without a trip to “famously hot” Columbia. South Carolina’s charming capital has a lot to offer, brimming with tradition, culture, kindness—and, of course, food.

Transportation From CAE

All airlines flying into the “Capital of Southern Hospitality” land at CAE, a small airport with big amenities for Columbia flights. Business travelers can work and print in the business center, while golf gurus visiting the region’s world-class courses can pick up supplies right in the terminal. If you’re staying near the airport, you won’t have to go far for delicious bites. Most hotels close to Columbia Metropolitan are located in the Brookwood neighborhood, where you’ll find plenty of down-home Southern cooking—think fluffy waffles and crispy fried chicken and biscuits. Ready to head into the city? There is a bus at the airport, but it departs only twice a day and may not be convenient. Many hotels provide courtesy shuttles to and from the airport, and if you forgot to pre-arrange pickup, you can use the hotel courtesy phone in the terminal. For extra convenience, just call a cab and they’ll be there in minutes. Rental cars are also an easy way to get around the area; you’ll find the agency counters near the baggage claim.
