One major complaint. The seats are not padded enough for long flights and the small space is atrocious. I dropped something and was literally unable to pick it up because there was no space for me to bend over that far. Even at the end of the flight when I was able to stand in the aisle and reach down from the side, it was still difficult to do. I am 5'4" and normal weight. The problem is the seat spacing.
