Has anyone flown with them? Thoughts? Similar to spirit?
I took a round trip flight last year, Hamilton to Las Vegas.

Check in process was a bit annoying, couldn't get the online checkin working, huge lineup at the Hamilton airport.
I am not sure if the online system was down on the specific day or it's always having issues.
Apart from that, just standard budget airline. Not that bad, you sleep and you're there (no entertainment)!

Swoop planes don't have in flight entertainment, just in case you didn't know, but they had paid wifi.
There is flight entertainment, you have to download their app. and you have access to their movies and stuff, it's not that bad lol

How strict are they with 'personal item'? I ask because a personal item can exceed the dimensions on their website yet still fit under the seat in front of you. Anyone who's had experience flying with Swoop: do they force you to measure your personal item / have you seen them do this?

Not on my flight, but when I did my research, seems like they sometimes do it..

^ I was going to ask if it was Swoop or Sunwing or some low cost alternative.

Can't wait for the December passenger charter to kick in so I can make some money thanks to carrier delays.

I flew with them once last June to Fort Lauderdale and the trip was smooth as butter. However, I do not doubt people who have left negative reviews so factor in delays and cancellations when booking.
