The seats were very uncomfortable. I along with maybe 4 other passengers were never given our breakfast meal. The attendant completely forgot about us. For such a long flight the seats should be made with more comfort in mind. Just because it is economy doesn’t mean we don’t deserve comfort.

The seats were very uncomfortable. I along with maybe 4 other passengers were never given our breakfast meal. The attendant completely forgot about us. For such a long flight the seats should be made with more comfort in mind. Just because it is economy doesn’t mean we don’t deserve comfort.
