Small plane

Aug 18, 2019

The service was great, possibly the best flight ever. However, boarding was a bit confusing because there were so many classifications of passengers. I boarded with “the rest of the passengers” - which I think was correct. Nobody said anything. I haven’t flown in a while so it’s certainly a lack of experience on my part as well. But I felt a few others were confused.
