I flew on quite a few PeoplExpress flights and I enjoyed them. The only things I didn't like were the seat pitch and the old Newark terminal, which was crowded beyond belief. The flight crews were friendly and safety-conscious. Before doing their safety demonstration, flight attendants would insist that you put down your reading material and pay attention to this important information. My flights were always on time, and I never missed a connection. Interiors were completely new, including wall panels and seats. Seat covers were of a very durable material, and they were tan with vertical stripes of purple and possibly other colors, I really don't remember. I flew on some of the same 737-100s that I had flown on with Lufthansa, and you wouldn't know they were the same planes. I also flew on the 737-200 and the 727-200. Flight attendants would come through the cabin selling food and drinks, and fares were collected in-flight, kind of like they did on the Eastern Air-Shuttle. I really miss PeoplExpress.
