When I tried asked the stewardess if I could deplane with business because I was running late for my connecting flight, she said they no longer do that because passengers don't listen to them.

Apparently there was WiFi that you could download an app for and watch other stuff, but no good selection at all, and since I had no way to charge my phone, it didn't seem a great idea to waste the battery.
