Why CE isn’t worth it.
No pre-departure drink
No hot towel before dinner
Poor food (compared to other airlines)
Inconsistent seating (luck of the draw and the subject of this thread)
Very variable service, from excellent to pants
Inconsistent boarding (priority for business class not guaranteed in reality)
No inflight entertainment on longer sectors
Aircraft that have shabby interiors and are not always clean
Huge price differential over Euro Traveller in many cases
I have to say that Euro Traveller is a decent economy product, although the cutback on food didn’t look too great, as it removed one of the elements of differentiation from the locos, for those travelling point to point.
