Flight Review

in-flight staff were excellent and very helpful

Mar 14, 2020

Did not pay extra to get assigned seats ahead of time, and although I checked in exactly 24 hours ahead of our flight, my wife and I were not able to be seated next to each other.

Mar 14, 2020

Best take off and landing I have ever experienced on a flight. As smooth as it could’ve possibly been. Amazing experience!

I was glad to get home. I purchased a Basic Economy roundtrip ticket and was not allowed to get a boarding pass or assigned seat unless I checked a suitcase. For the return flight from IAH to CMH, I tried to check a suitcase so I could go ahead and print my boarding pass. However, the system would not allow me to pay for the bag (Once in the terminal, the kiosk still didn't let me pay for the checked bag. So, thank you.) The plane had several mechanical problems that kept us sitting at the gate at IAH until all work and paperwork were done (1 1/2 hours). I was in Seat 11C, which was a very uncomfortable seat. There was very cold air coming out of the seam between the ceiling and the wall above the window. The man in the window seat was right under the significant flow of cold air. We both put on our jackets but it was a most uncomfortable flight. Turbulence meant that the drink service was interrupted. By the time we arrived at CMH, the first women's restroom was locked. However, everyone was very nice and I really appreciate the ride home.

Very smooth landing!

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Columbus

Make your journey to Columbus that little bit easier by reading over these helpful tips and pointers:

  • Make sure your travel ID and boarding pass are easy to reach. You'll be required to show them straightaway.
  • It's helpful to know that belts with metal buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you have one on, you may be instructed to place it in a tray before moving on.
  • All laptops must be removed from their cases and placed in a tray before being scanned.
  • Face cream, toothpaste and other toiletry items in liquid, gel or cream form need to be stored in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They must also fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear resealable bag.
  • Loosen your shoelaces before approaching the body scanner. Depending on the sort of shoes you've got on, security may tell you to take them off.
  • Pack any multi-tools or other dangerous items inside your checked luggage. Security won't allow these in carry-on baggage.

Flights To Columbus

Close your eyes, and imagine a time when horse-drawn carriages galloped through the streets and boats traveled in a hurry toward the shore to unload their wares. Back before cellphone alerts occupied the mind, there was a time when the day was tracked by the sun and a westward mentality inspired great exploration. Today, some American cities pay homage to the times of yore by maintaining relics and appreciating the simple things. Columbus, Ohio, is one such place.

The capital of Ohio is steeped in American history: Its roots trace back to 1812. When you fly into the Port of Columbus International Airport (CMH), you’re just steps away from the city's roots. Throughout the area, there are numerous prehistoric Indian burial mounds; at the Mound City Group National Monument at Chillicothe, 23 unique humps rise up from the ground. Other sites, including the Franklin Park Conservatory and Fort Hayes pay tribute to important parts of local history. The only thing between you and a getaway in the steps of history is booking one of our flights to Columbus.
