Gatwick full to bursting and checking own suitcases in was a bit of a shock. Staff on hand would have been better used behind a traditional check in desk to assist more people. Departure gate announcements low key so a preboarding family with child missed out. In flight was good and on time. Return check in much better with desks behind which the staff sit - easyJet please note this is better. Busy flight and cabin bags were too many so 15 cabin nags were checked in to hold at the gate. Impressed how the plane was turned around in half an hour. In flight service was calm and collected, very good. Legroom and seat pitch ok for max 2 hours, am over 6 feet tall so about my journey limit.
