WinAir Airlines Complaint - WinAir Ripoff
ST. MAARTEN -- My wife & I flew WinAir Airlines from St. Maarten to St. Eustatius Dec 26 - Jan 2 on a sCuba dive trip. Before we left, we checked to see if there were additional baggage charges. We received an email from Cecila at WinAir stating that divers would be allowed an additional 22 pound bag of dive gear.
When we checked in at the WinAir counter in St. Maarten, they would not let us check the 22# bag of dive gear until we paid $25.00 per bag. Please note that WinAir never did weigh these bags nor did they open and inspect their contents. On the return trip from St. Eustatius to St. Maarten, we had the same problem.
WinAir is the king of ripoffs. My suggestion: Take the ferry, another airline or another destination.
