My boyfriend and i are flying from Detroit to Fort Lauderdale.
Southwest is much less expensive and doesnt charge for checked luggage (around $400), however the flight is longer (5hrs) due to a stop and a plane change. What i worry about with that is our luggage getting lost during the plane change. I'm not sure how it works. Do we have to check our luggage in Detroit and during our stop in St Louis?
I like the idea of flying Delta, which is a nonstop flight (3hrs) but they charge baggage fees and will cost almost double of what southwest will charge. I do like being able to pick seats with delta too. However id rather spend that money on doing things during our vacation.
Looking for peoples opinions here that have flown southwest because i have no clue! Cheaper/longer flight with possibly confusing plane change? Will my luggage get lost?
