Cons: "Absolutely hopeless baggage delivery/collection. Almost as long as the flight"
Cons: "The food was terrible. Why can’t you just serve a regular plain meal. Why try to be fancy with all these nasty sauces. Give me a regular sandwich for lunch and some simple pasta or something. The only things edible was the fruit."
