There was no wifi available on the flight at all for the entire duration. That’s unacceptable in this day and age on such a large and widely known carrier.

There was a child who cried the entire flight next to me with little intervention from the parents or flight crew. It made it very difficult to get comfortable. The food wasn’t the best. I’ve had better food on domestic flight from delta in the US. Compared to other airlines I’ve taken internationally I would say this flight was mediocre.
