There is a recent trip report posted on this new service. I'm not sure a comparison to a C-130 flight is fair to US, but it appears you got a great fare, and the service noted in the trip report certainly appears to be satisfactory.
Unless you pay for a seat up front, transatlantic Y is not a luxurious, and pampered service on anyone. You don't have to buy a wine/beer/cocktail if you choose not to, and food may rank up there with a Movenpick buffet, but US is a good value, with contrary to some comments, good and dedicated employees.
I hope you enjoy your trip and visit to the US. I was in Norway for my second trip in May, and absoulutely love your country. Stunning geography, great food, and very nice people.
watch what you want. you may get it.
