    Flight was wonderful, just a little disappointed to be sat under the wing causing my view to be partially obstructed. It made taking photos very difficult and marred the view. Offering those seats at a discounted price would be a good idea so as customers know what to expect and don’t feel disgruntled that all other passengers had a clear view.
