They seem to use ATR 72 on Penang - Phuket route. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATR_72

The space for carry on baggage always seems to be very limited on ATRs. The overhead bins are unusually small and the space under the seats is cramped, too.

Firefly is a small plane, 19 rows of 2 seats, left and right. Generally, I sometimes feel airsick on a big carrier, but firefly was ok, and the flight was only 1 hour and 15 minutes. So it should be ok.
