Pros: "Crew kept you informed."
Cons: "All went well"

Pros: "PLane was clean, boarding went fast, meals and snacks were decent."

Pros: "Selection of films good. Thankful for complimentary earphones. Thankful for pillow and blanket too."
Cons: "Food. Sandwich was terrible. Couldn’t figure what kind of of filling it had. Bread hard and difficult to bite. Not enough restrooms. Aisle is narrow. When waiting for restroom behind row 35(?) they are standing and waiting and bumping into people sitting in rows 28+."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the service was very good. For an 11 hour flight, it was better than I anticipated. The meals were surprisingly tasty!"
Cons: "Just one thing...I couldn't seem to recline my seat, but I didn't say anything about it. This isn't anyone's fault, but for someone my age, sitting in one location for 11 hours is a pain. Also, my one check-in bag was literally the last bag on the baggage carousel... just my bad luck."

Pros: "I love"

Pros: "Nothing. I slept 70 percent of the way but these two adults ad their brat kid kept kicking seats and the father was the wasn’t a horrible trip but I think the father was the oddest. He kept changing his seat next to mine. But overall I slept 70 percent of the time."

The paid snack options were few and there we no healthier choices. You have to pay for all of films, games, and movies. No WiFi on the plane. The display had issues when I tried to turn it off - it would randomly come on. The volume for the "advertisements" were ridiculously louder. In fact, they were louder than the safety announcements from the staff! Gotta pay $25 for a checked bag."

The food very substandard. If you were on a basic ticket, you were only entitled to water and no food. So people are travelling on long haul flights without being offered anything as standard. Passengers on these tickets were not aware that they would not be served.any food which is probably unethical. They offer to sell you food if on a basic ticket"

Pros: "When it finally took off the flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "Plane was delayed coming in, then we were told we were waiting on catering. Then it became a weather issue. Then we boarded. Weather got worse so they took us off. The second time we boarded and were told we’re waiting on catering who wasn’t on site then had to go through airport security. After 3HOURS , we were asked to leave the plane. For rebounding the next morning with no explanation. The next morning the flight was delayed an additional 3HOURS. We were never given food in all this time of a wait. This became an 18+ hour delay. We definitely missed our connection and they rebooked it."

I will never forget my experience in Newark, New Jersey. I met a wonderful woman named Yevette who checked in my luggage. She is to be commended on going above and beyond the call of duty. I don't know her last name. She knew I was very upset because I was leaving my 22 year old baby in Connecticut. She sympathized and comforted me. She put her arms around me and assured me that everything was going to be alright. She is a wonderful woman with a big heart. She is the true meaning of a lady.
