The economy level provides comfortable, high-backed seating with floor and ceiling storage for luggage for 125 passengers. There are two bathrooms outside and a kiosk inside that will provide drinks and food for a small fee. The first class level provides spacious two-person couch seating with side table for 20 passengers. There is a bathroom and eatery kiosk upstairs, as well.
