I liked that you put our family together even though we did not choose our seats, that the inside of the plane seemed new or updated, we were not fussed about the sizes of our bags that were the free size.

Even though the seats go back just a little, it is very annoying, and not worth the effort. Fix the seats so we don't have this issue.
