Unfriendly staff, the pilot never announced anything during the entire flight including we’re at altitude, what the weather was like at the destination how much time is left if we were ahead or behind schedule etc. Very funny gay gene flight crew.

The new check in process at Newark liberty airport was so efficient. Did have a bit of a bottleneck situation at security. Flight was on time, boarding was smooth. Friendly crew.. excellent communication from pilot about nature of delays. I am slightly hard of hearing and I think due to the poor quality of headphones i had to turn it up much louder than I should have.. it made it uncomfortable. It would be great if that was a priority. Impressed with main course but don’t like quality of buns.. I much prefer bread made with wholesome unrefined flour. Very happy with biscotti and the quality of yoghurt provided for breakfast!
