I was in the window seat on a 10 hour flight. The people next to me fell asleep, and the teenage girl legs took up my area. I couldn't wake them up to go to the bathroom or to get water. I was very uncomfortably😭😩. for several hours. Next flight I will book an isle seat.

I'm so glad I chose to purchase premium economy BA seats for our flight. PE is just heaven for such a long trip: wide, comfortable seats; excellent food (included) good power options; friendly attentive staff; good entertainment options.

Entertainment weak. Food ok needed a salad with the dinner.
