What bothers me is about the skycap,outside they tried to charge me overweight bag for 250 and keep the money. Please investigate this matter because it not fair

Certainly the most professional and helpful flight attendant crew I can remember in a long time. Made the 14.5 hour trip comfortable and easy. A few minuses: no power outlets on the airplane (A340-600). Armrests do not fully fold up (they stop at about 75 degrees). Sound quality on headphones only fair. These are minor complaints; overall, the airline and the aircraft were excellent.
