Hi,

interesting short report. Do you know the reason why they upgraded you to Economy Extra? Was it because of your Eurobonus silver status?

RE: Prescreen Request

Hi,

the colours in both pictures look 'flat' to me. Additional contrast/saturation is needed.
The NWA has a strange, green (?) colour cast and both shots need an extra kick of sharpness.
