Staff was efficient, but not particularly friendly. They only feed you twice. Shortly after takeoff and shortly before landing. Which leaves about 11 hours in between. Food was so so. Nothing to brag about. No snacks a are provided throughout the flight.

I wish app check ins are easy. But it was really hard

Accessing reservation on line to select seats a painful and puzzling process - altho it ultimately worked.

Everyone was very helpful and delightful. Good experience with this airline!

Free on board WiFi is great plus, Food was ok. The male flight attendants were not service oriented. For example, when snack service was served, I asked if there was an extra sandwich after service was finished. The attendant snarled there would be no extra - but, in the galley extras were there for anyone to take. The women flight attendants were nice.

The layover time was a little short and almost missed the connection because the first flight was late.

The wifi was really bad. Couldn't really get any work done.
