I travelled as a student ambassador for the last 3 weeks, here's my flight report:
Apparently the travel agent screwed up so we had to leave for zurich from chicago. For the 2+ hours, the seats weren't that bad, and we got a really good snack. I was surprised that both the flight attendants in coach were guys. Smooth flights, great T/O and Landing.
It was a night flight, but a lot of us stayed awake for the 8h 45 flight to avoid jet lag. The food was vile, as well as a few of the stewardesses. The seats were a little cramped, and the movie was hard to see (even tho i didn't want to see "head over heels"). When we landed and we were waiting for the gate to open one of the f/a's yelled at us and told us that we were on an active runway. She did not know that there were 3 pilots with about 70h total in the group (inc. me) and we told everyone that if we were on an active runway we would all be dead .
3 weeks later, after winding our way thru europe, we left from LHR. I don't care what anyone says about airbuses, there was more room on the A300 than the 763, we all had PTV's, and the food was infinitely better (chicken and pizza). 2 male flight attendants was weird, but all 4 coach f/a's were guys on this flight. They were a lot nicer than the ones on 1527 (don't get me wrong, there was 1 nice f/a on 1527). very good t/o and landing and the pilot was very good coming into EWR with all the clouds.
