Cons: They waited until my last flight to weigh my carry on and then tell me that I had to check it in for $80. I just got off that flight and the person at the counter cleared my bags so I understand the money grab. Also flying 12hrs and then 8hrs and not having your meals complimentary is a big problem. They are nothing but a money grabbing selfish airline. Never again
