A lot of confusion about being able to select my seat. I went online and called and spoke to an agent several times to acquire an emergency exit seat. The agent said I needed to wait until 24 hour boarding window opened. When I went online there were no emergency seats available, yet after I boarded the flight there were 4 to 5 emergency seats vacant. I don’t mind paying extra for an emergency exit seat, but live agents an online did not allow me to do it. I would like to know how to do it in the future.

the interface on the inflight entertainment system was a bit hard to control, other that that the seats were more comfortable in economy than other flights i have taken

Pleased with how far the seats recline... I was able to sleep which is unusual. Also pleasantly surprised with the seats assigned as we could not select seats in advance.
