Seats are uncomformably small

Seat assignment should not be something you charge extra for.

Amazing staff

Feb 18, 2020

check in wasn't great because we didn't realize with the economy tickets you don't have a seat assignment until after they have boarded all the other groups. They were nice about explaining it though!
