For a few dollars more at check-in you can get economy plus. which is welcome if you are tall, but otherwise isn't a big deal. I'm sure you've read all about it here, but basically it is an economy seat with extra legroom. It runs from the front of the cabin to the last emergency exit seat.
Your in-flight service will consist of the standard drinks and snacks. If the flight is three hous or longer you are offered meals for sale ($5). They offer a fresh salad or sandwich or your choice of four pre-packaged selections. It doesn't sound like much but I think the food is actually good. You never know what you're going to get with the "chicken or beef" airline food!
IFE will consist of a single video channel offereing a movie on longer flights, but more likely a series of short-subjects. They offer various sitcoms as well as some human interest news, tech or biz highlights and promo spots usually. You also get several channels of audio, now sponsored by XM
Satelite radio. It comes down to six or seven selections of music genres. I don't know if it is a live feed or a recorded package though (they don't publish the playlist like they did before XM
started). And last but certainly not least, is the famed Channel 9! This is a must-do-once for every aviation junkie! If you are unfamiliar, ch. 9 is a live ATC feed from the cockpit. It is officially "at the captain's discretion" but I have rarely not had it available, and word on these boards is that if you ask, it will be turned on for sure.
Hemisphere's magazine is pleasant. As of late I can only compare it to CO NW
mags, but I think it is far superior to those. It is oriented to the traveler who goes for both busieness and pleasure. I especially like the periodic fiction pieces called "row 22 A & B."
All in all I'd go for it. You're on a mileage run, so for five euros you get quite a few more miles along with your new airline experience. Hard to argue with that!
