Hermes1964, thank you for a comprehensive review. I have several times, on RTW tickets, idly toyed with the idea of doing a sector on IB but usually discarded the idea fairly quickly – largely because there have been so many posts on this forum decrying IB’s product, so I had rather got the impression it was some way down the desirability spectrum. Your post has made me rethink that. A couple of questions for you – was there AVOD on your flight, and are you able to give a (wholly subjective, of course!) comparison as to how it compares with any other transatlantic airline?
