My Thoughts

The overhead bins were small. It was hard to get my luggage into it. Yes, my carry-on was a bit stuffed. The plan could only hold, I think they said, 25 wheeled bags.  Which I found interesting. Since there were

First Class12

Now, that seems like a lot more than 25. Maybe people don’t fly with a lot of bags. It was an excellent aircraft. It was small, all we needed to get to San Francisco. The advantage of a smaller plane is that there are few people. Yes, there are 72 seats on this plane. But that is better than the 150+ on other planes.
