A lady sitting in the row in front of me - a 50-something y/o woman with husband and 3 kids keep on reclining her seat to the point that I was barely a couple of inches from the top of her head, even as I was eating.

This wasn’t the first time it’s happened on this flight, either! We were thirsty and no one offered us water. The flight attendants kept skipping my friend and I when they did come around, which was not often. We were extremely thirsty the entire time and when we finally were able to get up to use the bathroom and search for water, we were told to sit back down.

They had initially told me I would have a hotel to stay in during my layover, but upon my return trip, I was told that I could not get a hotel. They had a policy in place that stated since I could have taken a later flight, they wouldn't compensate my hotel... but I had never been told that, otherwise I would have made other arrangements. I had to be out of Iraq at a particular time, and leaving any later simply wasn't possible. The staff was uncaring, and unfriendly throughout the entire process."

We departed hours later with still no concrete information, we just had to follow the people on our flight."
Pros: "Crew was very patient. Boarding was great."
Cons: "No comfort. I'm pregnant and they wait till I'm at the desk to tell me that I need to find an ob Gyn to send a paper to the Royal Jordanian doctor who in turn would send a paper to the ticket desk so they can give me my boarding pass. I'm only four months pregnant. There was no need for any of that. I told the Royal Jordanian in Chicago that I was pregnant and the Ord people only made me sign a non-liability disclaimer. How come no one warned me? Wasted an entire day and you made a pregnant woman starve. i was lucky I didn't decide to check in ON THE DAY OF MY FLIGHT. Anyways, God bless you.
