Hate the nickel and diming. Check in site is confusing and easy to make mistakes. Will avoid in future. Crew was great. Plane was scary sounding on takeoff and landing. Sounds old.

Honestly the rows are too close together. I am 5’8” and it’s all I can do to lean forward and pull my backpack from under the seat in front of me. Otherwise everything was fine. No hiccups.
