It may have been the seat shape more than size. I felt like my arms were being squished forward and I couldn’t get comfortable because of the curved shape of the seat back And I’m not like super huge or anything. Because of flight changes, we ended up getting bumped over to American Airlines for the flight back, and that’s when I noticed how much more comfortable the seat was (although every other feature of the flight was woefully inferior, especially the food… and no donut in Iceland, more’s the pity).
Iceland doesn’t do donuts?
Apparently they have better pastries available.
If they have fruit danish with streusel, I am so there!
Ahem…when there’s a drop in COVID-19, of course.
Unicorn is pretty good, but not as good as reindeer.
Meant we didn’t stop over in Iceland on the way back that time, so no donut for me. Sad.
The move comes are airlines around the world try to employ their idled resources during the pandemic and tap into people’s desire to fly when most planes are grounded. Some are offering simulated flights, fake trips where the aircraft takes off and lands in the same location, or even just time to sit in the plane.
Maybe I’m a freak but I tend to fly in order to get somewhere else, not because I enjoy the experience of being trapped in a cramped, pressurised environment for hours on end.
As for the food, I’ve generally found it to be perfectly palatable. It’s no better or worse than the standard microwave readymeals available in supermarkets.
I tend to look forward to meals on planes because a) I like food and b) it’s something to break the monotony.
I flew Asiana Airlines to Seoul last summer. The food was better than what you’d get in most Korean restaurants in the states. I think shitty airline food is mainly a US problem.
When I read “First Worlders” calling airplane food good, I thank fate for being born Brazilian. The price and qualiry of Brazilian food is what makes us stand our Presidents, that swing between Bolivarian Clepto-Socialist to Clepto-Fascist (always emphasis on CLEPTO). The mere thought of eating frozen pre-prepared supermatket meals sounds gross to us. Even in favelas everyone eats fresh food.
I remember when they opened there were queues on the street. I guess the novelty wore off after a while. Understandable. Give me a fresh kleina or a kanilsnúður any day.
