Would be helpful if the bags had gone all the way to the final destination rather than having to collect and re-drop in the short gap between flights.

Staff very helpful and pleasant. Air con was on cold so the aircraft was freezing which made it harder to sleep. The crew asked for it to be turned down when asked.

I know it is not exactly your problem but wouldn't it be nice if passengers could make sure of their personal cleanliness before traveling knowing that they will be shoehorned into a small space with others for a conciderable amount of time. Maybe we could invent a smellometer for use at the check-in!
