I especially like that I was able to use the iPad that allowed us to watch movies 🎥 for free

Only trouble I had was with the entertainment and the WiFi. I downloaded the Gogo app as directed prior to the flight to be prepared to view movies only to find that feature was not available. Also I only had wireless head phones which I could not use to view other featured entertainment and the flight did not have enough to provide me with a set. That was a bummer.
