Hello Everyone,

I recently returned from China and am slowly adjusting to a U.S. timezone. I had a little time to put together some of my video clips to make this report. Most of the flight was in the dark and I slept most of it, as I had only slept a few hours before starting my journey on a MFE-IAH-EWR route at 5:30am.

I will forewarn you that some of the clips are on the dark side, my cheapo HD camera is not good at all for low light video.

Here is a little information on the flight. Hope you enjoy the video, thanks for watching.

Thank you for the very interesting video.
UA C looks great. But their long haul Y is below mediocre.

I can't imagine spending 16 hours with 31" legroom and lousy sub par meals. To Asia in Y I would pick an Asian carrier.

Nice TR! How did you score this ticket? Did you use miles or splurge with cash?

It was a reward ticket, 32K.

Great TR.

Just curious, if your flight was very bumpy, it seemed like you got tossed around a bit.

It was moderate turbulence. I am not very steady with the cam, so probably that causes it to seem like it was heavier turbulence than it actually was. On my trip back to the U.S. I took a United 747 that was in heavy turbulence throughout the flight. I will post that trip report when I have some time to put the clips together. You will clearly see the engines move heavily as the 747 was tossed around. Thanks for watching.
