My wife and I were on a long-haul Manila – Honolulu flight. Boarding was average and despite being a new A330, the seating was cramped and uncomfortable but wait for it…The stewardess that served our section stood chewing gum with her mouth open during the safety briefing!
After take off an announcement was made that supper would be served shortly…well if you call over an hour “shortly” when it’s already gone 11pm and everybody was starving and wondering what was going on. Then after the meal the seatbelt sign went on for at least an hour after one minor shake due to high winds.
Now personally I think this was a plan hatched to get everybody to sit down whilst they tidied up the cabin and removed the dirty trays. The only really positive comment I can make is it arrived on time. Never again!
