Pros
It’s so nice to not have to drive! The staff is very friendly and answers all questions and tries hard to be helpful. Great experience.
Cons
In business class it would be nice if there was a second round of snacks - one early and one later. The WiFi connection wasn’t great either
Tips
You can leave your suitcase on the first level before going upstairs to your seat
