What a crap show! Do not ever fly this airlines no matter the savings. Completely unorganized and understaffed. We waited for over 2.5 hours just to check our bags. Ticket attendants were late and did not open counter until 1 hour before the first flight was supposed leave. Each person took 10 min to check one bag. Ludicrous! Will never...

I've flown nearly a million miles in my life and have never seen such a poorly managed couldnt care less about their passengers airline. Last night these geniuses delayed us over 3 hours and had my bag for a total of 9. They finally load the plane but decided HALF the plane didn't need their bags when they arrived at...

Some people apparently were notified by email of a 2 hour flight delay-I was not and yes I had signed up for emails. My husband and I were literally the 3rd and 4th people checking in. As soon as we walked up a guy checking in tells us 'Good luck you're going to need it'. At first I was thinking...

Although budget friendly everything else about the airline was first class. My flight was too short for any kind of trolley service but flight attendants were polite and well presented and the aircraft clean.

When travelling to the airport make sure you tell the taxi driver as the internal flights airport is down the road from the main airport, so you want to make sure you get to the right one. The airport is very basic, luggage allowances are very low and for the amount of luggage and lack of service (flight was only...

Delay 5 hours. I was pissed and they did nothing. Little did I know that was their routine: every flight delayed.

I’m not sure how this airline is still open. Great idea by the Government of Bahamas but very poor execution. This company needs to study South African Airlines and try to duplicate their success. Both legs of our flight was delayed with no explanation. The planes are at least 40 to 50 years old. The only thing that looks modern...

Spare yourself the anger and frustration. The low fare is not worth the hassle. Just fly another airlines. 2 1/2 hour delay. For what? Who knows? No compensation for my bag that couldn’t arrive with me to my final destination. Thank goodness my family could pick up my bag.
