Although our flight was not full, by the time our section was called to board there was no space at all for our and also other people's carry-on bag. They were tagged and taken away to be sent to our final destination.
This is always a concern when we have a short stop over late at night. If we don't make the connection we have not even the necessities with us! It seems careless to let some people bring on excessive luggage and others are refused their bag. Luckily we made our second flight and all was well.
I did enjoy the comfortable seat as well as the in-flight service on both flights. Not much leg room though, but OK for a short flight as long as you don't have to get things out of your purse from under the seat.
