US Airways

US AirwaysWe traveled from San Francisco to Vegas in September 2011 with our entire family: 2 adults, a toddler and a 2 month old. It was a short flight but the overall experience was quite pleasant.

First of all, fares were cheap. There was a baggage fee of $25 per bag which we were able to avoid because of Star Alliance status. We were not able to add the infant when we purchased the ticket but we called in and were able to add her without a problem. The agent said we could have also added her at the airport but rather not take the chance.

Complimentary water and soft drinks (which is more than many do these days) and alcohol and snacks for a fee were available on the flight. Nothing specifically for kids, although you can’t really expect that on such a short flight.

Our strollers were checked in without incident at the gate and were returned to us before we even disembarked, which was great because we normally have to wait a while for them to be brought up.

All in all, a good experience.
