Can't pass Lookup test

Even looking at the answers I can’t make this work. I get the essence of the excercise but is not working. Please help

**Your code so far**

// Setup
var contacts = [
{
    "firstName": "Akira",
    "lastName": "Laine",
    "number": "0543236543",
    "likes": ["Pizza", "Coding", "Brownie Points"]
},
{
    "firstName": "Harry",
    "lastName": "Potter",
    "number": "0994372684",
    "likes": ["Hogwarts", "Magic", "Hagrid"]
},
{
    "firstName": "Sherlock",
    "lastName": "Holmes",
    "number": "0487345643",
    "likes": ["Intriguing Cases", "Violin"]
},
{
    "firstName": "Kristian",
    "lastName": "Vos",
    "number": "unknown",
    "likes": ["JavaScript", "Gaming", "Foxes"]
}
];


function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {
// Only change code below this line
for(var i = 0; i < contacts.legth; i++) {
if(contacts[i].firstName === name) {
    if(contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
        return contacts[i][prop];
    } else {
        return "No such property";
    }
}
}
return "No such contact";

// Only change code above this line
}

lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

Challenge: Profile Lookup

Link to the challenge:

for(var i = 0; i < contacts.legth; i++) {

Here, length has spelling error. The rest is fine.

I recommend using indentation to help see the logic in your code:

function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {
  // Only change code below this line
  for (let i = 0; i < contacts.legth; i++) { // Typo here
    if (contacts[i].firstName === name) {
      if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
        return contacts[i][prop];
      } else {
        return "No such property";
      }
    }
  }
  return "No such contact";
  // Only change code above this line
}

Thanks a lot! after a few hrs is easy to miss even the silliest errors
