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.

Unfriendly staff, the pilot never announced anything during the entire flight including we’re at altitude, what the weather was like at the destination how much time is left if we were ahead or behind schedule etc. Very funny gay gene flight crew.
