"What we REALLY appreciated was that they did not allow large carry-ons onto the plane: only what could fit under the seat."
"Enhanced economy offers free entertainment on your device, beverages and no food. Plus quite a bit of extra leg room and faster boarding."
"Take a book or e-book to read."
"Read fine print if an overseas traveller. Dont board if hungry."
"Leave at least 2hrs between flights coming back into US"
