Appreciated staff telling me to shift things around in our luggage to avoid a fee. Our male air host on the flight was SUPER fantastic! Had a good sense of humor, and was very attentive. All the air hostesses were also very nice.

Truly uncomfortable seats for 5’ 1” person due to fixed headrests on seats.

Check in agent was extremely helpful!

The only negative was the bus after a long flight. Why can’t you have jetways?
