Ugh - the problem starts with departure - never at the prescribed time - in this case , Ft Lauderdale to Newark - 75 minutes later than scheduled. And of course the WiFi was inoperative, due to some technical glitch. But hey, there is always the mini-pretzel bag for your snack. From Newark to Rome, if you sat in the back, the only remaining dinner choice was succotash and noodles, rice with soggy spinach in a watery sauce, and a cup of ice cream. My advice - pick any other transatlantic airline.
