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.

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 trip to Columbus a little easier by reading over these helpful tips and pointers:

  • Security personnel will expect to see your travel ID and boarding pass as part of their checks. Put them in a convenient place, so they're ready for inspection.
  • It's helpful to know that metal belt buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you're wearing one, you may be asked to place it in a tray before continuing.
  • All laptops must be removed from their protective carriers and placed in a tray prior to being X-rayed.
  • Toothpaste, deodorant and other toiletry items in gel, liquid 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 zip-lock bag.
  • Untie your shoelaces in preparation for entering the body scanner. Depending on the style of shoes you've got on, security may ask you to remove them.
  • Some countries have strict quarantine laws. Consider where you're journeying to and whether or not you're allowed to travel with fruit and meats.

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.

Most hotels close to Port Columbus International offer free airport transfers, and you can purchase a ticket to ride the CMH shuttle bus into the city. The Central Ohio Transit Authority also offers bus services from the airport to the city and surrounding areas, and taxis and limousines are available for hire. Book a rental car when you book Columbus plane tickets, and you can explore Greater Ohio at your leisure. A number of car rental kiosks are also located at the airport arrival terminals.
