Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not so knowledgeable about ammonia as a fuel, but the additional nitrogen molecule will add significantly to the weight of the fuel.

Having worked in the Industrial gas industry for twenty years, I am familiar with the problems of production, handling and storage of hydrogen, and simply put, of all the common gases, hydrogen is the one that gives rise to the most safety issues.

The first liquid H2 plant in Europe was built in the eighties, and as a product, it was a failure,because of the transport/storage problems. The most significant application was for space flight. For the rest, compressed hydrogen worked out just fine.
