Pros: Unloading from both ends of the plane
Cons: When we arrived there were only two lines. When we finally were checked in there were five lines. All of the additional lines were added little by little with no attempt to move people who were already on the original lines ahead. Whoever was pushy and fast got ahead. It took us over an hour on line to check in, but some people who arrived much later got right in. It was very frustrating.
Also, we were aware that food was optional and was to be paid for, but no one even offered us water. Are we to pay for that too now. When will you start charging to use the toilet?
