We were delayed. Crew was rude. Then we flew to another airport just to get fuel, which further delayed us. We arrived late to the connecting airport and missed our connecting flight home. Not given food vouchers. Had to pay for 1 checked bag despite flying internationally.

Flight was timely

We flew to Hawaii for a friend's wedding and many of us flew different airlines. You would think that a flight that was 8 hours would include a meal?! Our friends who flew Delta and American all got meals and snacks. Another issue too is that you do get free movies although they don't tell you as your boarding that you would need their App to watch it. So if you didn't download it before take off you have to pay for their internet or their tablet.
