Seating is too cramped. It seems to me that with the millions of dollars you make on baggage fees you could remove a row or two of seats and give your passengers a bit more comfort.

Why do we board the plane by zone and not window, middle followed by aisle seating?

Mar 4, 2020

The charge for being couple pounds over on our checked baggage is very excessive. Should not be a hundred dollars for 2 pounds.
