This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on. The plane had no fans at each seat and it was extremely hot for 10 hours. Each seat was unbelievably small so it was impossible to reach on the ground to pick something up as needed. When the person in front of me reclined his seat, I couldn’t even use my tray table fully.
