Oh my God I couldn't disagree more. I thought IB
's entire J product was a joke, and this was on their "new" J. The seat was mediocre. For one, you couldn't move the seat while the tray table was down. Another, there's absolutely no way anyone who's over like 5'8 could extend fully in "bed" mode. While AA
still has the angled lie flat J, it's worth pointing out that I actually had room for my legs on the seat. IB
's seat, while supposed to be fully lie-flat, was so short I was forced to have my feet and lower calves dangling over the end. Not comfortable. I'm tall, but not crazy tall (6'1).
The food was very "meh." Edible, but by far the worst catering of all our oneworld flights. Service was non-attentive, though the CSM did personally apologize for some of the issues we had.
, on the other hand, has had terrific catering on every single J flight I've had with them. They're well known for their catering, and ex: MIA
Same story with flight attendants. While they may be getting older, I've generally found them to be witty and fun, to accompany professional.
