My first flight to and from Rabat. I was very satisfied until just before the flight. When the gate opened, people were queuing for ticket control. Because it was the last flight that day, many female employees gathered at the exit of the gate. They were all standing there unnecessarily. What I found most unprofessional is that they were eating chocolates with each other and some were on their phones. All this while people were already queuing.
