The flight to Raleigh from Atlanta was very short and I never got my drink/snack - which was more disappointing than it should have been. This trip back to Atlanta from Raleigh was also short but I got my drink and snack so I was happy about that. It is very loud in the back of the plane and I was in the last row, but since it was a short flight it was not too big a deal. I was able to get an aisle seat, but had no option to move beyond the last row.
