Very friendly staff
We were very happy with our flight experience
One staff inside the plane was rough in dealing with situation not helpful . She should be polite as travelling is already stress and people needs reassurance instead of showing behaviour to passenger.
It was a very comfortable flight and very easy to get through the Murcia airport.
