Hello all and Happy New Year!
I am just currious as to when your last flight was. Be it non-rev or full fare.
Also, what was one thing that stood out in your mind that impressed you. Be it a terminal, res agent, online website (booking, check in, ect.) ticket/gate agent, aircraft itself, flight attendant. Whatever made you go . Hhhmm. That is pretty neat. Thanks for your replies. Much appriciated.
Service was very good. Despite the somewhat high-density seating (168), they were very comfortable planes. My only complaint was that they were stingy on the food. Flight deck visits on the ground, however, made up for that. Many A.net posters seem to dislike the A320; I personally like the plane a lot, finding it very comfortable to fly on.
I personally recommend both the airline and the destination!

On the 6th of January this year.
The new Athens airport is beautiful and so are OS's A321s with the drop down LCD screens and the service, but I was rather unimpressed by the awful food, the long delay in Vienna (three hours) and the Fokker 70 up to ARN.

quite a trip... AA was alright i sort of expected more, but it was still good dont get me wrong. Lan Chile to Punta Arenas was simply amazing. ex-Austral MD-81 sucked. it was the most cramped flight ive been on. Service was better than US airlines, but i am not even 6 feet tall and this is the first time my knees hit the seat in front of mine. 737-200 of Aerolineas Argentinas, maybe ex-Austral as well was one of the best planes i have been on with ample leg room. two extremes on one airline, so i dont know what to think of it. Aeroparque is a cool airport, so is Ezeiza.
my next flights are not as exciting though

life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on
Service was very good, IFE was not so good (no PTV's and I did not have a good angle to the screen in the outbound flight because my seat was 8J). Food was better than what you would probably get in a flight of the same duration with a U.S. carrier. The aircraft were generally in very good shape. Boarding in MEX went on very smoothly, as the plane was less than 65% full, and we left the gate on time. Boarding in GRU was terrible because the line for migratory control was long and very, very slow. The last passengers to board made it to their seats a few minutes after the scheduled time for departure.
What impressed me the most was the AM person at GRU who checked in my bags and gave me my boarding pass. Not only was she lovely, but also really, really nice. I met her again after I went through the X-ray machine and she indicated the way to the gate with a beautiful smile on her face. Btw, she called me by my name. I don't know if she just does her job like that all the time or if she is really good remembering names, but she was really nice. I think I am in love with her. Although we made some conversation in Portuñol while I was checking my bags in, I very stupidly did not ask her name and didn't even look at her nametag. I hope I see her again some day (perhaps I should start a thread trying to find her) because she was an angel.

CLT-MIA-CLT the weekend after Christmas and before New Year's. The flight back to CLT was very good in terms of service. The aircraft was an MD80.
I guess what stood out the most for me was the First Officer on that flight...he was a very cool guy and very friendly. He took a few minutes and talked with me when I told him I am an aspiring airline pilot.
The only thing I didn't like about this flight was that an infant did a number two in her pants, and the mom did not bother to go to the bathroom and change her diaper. The smell was not very nice from about Savannah to CLT.

My last flight was from Philadelphia to Ottawa on January 2nd. It was on a US Airways Express DO 328, probably the most uncomfortable A/C I've ever been on. I recognise the fact that I am taller than the average person, but I would've had to have been about 5'5" to be comfortable with the seat pitch. Thankfully the flight was only half full so everyone had room to stretch out. I cannot imagine what I would've done if they flight had been full.
: OKC-IAH-CDG-OKC Jan 8-11. Completely FULL flights on all sectors. Fastest flight I've ever had as well on the IAH-CDG. Made it there in under 8 hours.
: MAN-HER-MAN Flyjet 757 G-FJEA JUst your average charter flight. Food not particularly good, cramped etc. The view out the window made up for it though
: The extremely boring RNO-LAS-RNO flight on WN. I think they take off, look down to find the Interstate, and fly that sucker right along it until they
