The deboarding is terrible for people that have a short time to get to connecting flights. I had to get to gate that was 30 gates away. I made it just in time as they were well into the boarding process!!! The people that use the overhead bins block the aisles and no one can get through . This is a lengthy process. Need to have something in place to facilitate the departure of those that really have to depart quickly!!

The staff was incredibly polite. It took me three tries to get my luggage in a spot where it would fit, left me a bit stressed. Otherwise, all good, very grateful. Thank you!
