It is hard to say good things about any flight that has you crammed into a tight seat for 16 hrs straight! You just endure it the best that you can. It was a rough trip with a lot of turbulence but the seatbelt sign was on for much longer than needed, causing a lot of discomfort. Food was standard and the entertainment system worked well and we arrived on time. Overall an average experience.
