Things to Watch for When Traveling Float plane


Baggage allowance on float plane could be different from other airlines. The last time when we were flying it was 25lb per person.

I also avoid the last flight of the day - Its Common sense, you don't want to get stuck a whole day if the flight gets canceled.
