I am flying HP First (if it can even be called that) in two weeks to JFK. I was wondering what I am going to get, especially food because I hear from some that I will and from others that I won't. Also what is the seat like?

I haven't flown first class on very many airlines (just HP and CO domestic), and the seat isn't great, but it is comfy and large. I haven't had a bad meal sitting in HP F yet. They usually have a very good tasting pasta dish with a brownie for desert. You get a good meal.

They actually just changed the menu in first... so I don't know what exactly is being served now but HP's food is generally good. The seat is comfy enough, but some competitors definitely have better F seats. So yes, as long as you're not flying on the redeye, you will get meal service. They will show a movie on board, but no PTV... your experience should be decent though. You will be flying with some of the best FA's in the sky (in general).
I experienced HP first many, many times in the late 1990s, DCA-PHX/PHX-DCA. Not bad at all. Typical Domestic First for the period. Also flew HP first ANC-PHX-SJC/SJC-PHX-ANC in 2002 and 2003. Again, typical domestic first. The only time I didn't get a meal was on the ANC-PHX redeye. Nothing special about it, but edible.
Please do a trip report about this experience as I'm scheduled on US out of ANC in Nov in F flying (HP)ANC-LAS-(US)CLT-BHM/BHM-CLT-DCA-PHX-(HP)ANC. I'll be curious to see what's new/different onboard.

Will do, it will be a long report... as it will be PHX-JFK-AMS-BUD-AMS-JFK-PHX with the PHX-JFK route in first. Will let you know when it is up.
