It may be the last time, too. Caution: No luggage is free. Even Carry-ons cost extra. Even water costs extra. 40 pound weight limit per checked bag. $25 extra fee for 41-50 pounds. $30 per carry-on each way. Skates are heavy so we put 2 pairs in one carry-on. Finally, they combined our flight, causing a 2 hour delay. Legroom is very very tight for a 6 foot tall person. That's the Spirit!
