I took advantage of the inexpensive flights from Newburgh/NY-USA to Ireland this August but wondering if I will regret this. I have read some terrible reviews about this airline with regard to cancelling flights and offering poor customer service and now have found out there is no in-flight entertainment on long haul 737-800 flights except a poorly working wifi (and no place to plug in your device to charge it). I have read that the 737 Dreamliner is OK and that the premium seats are fine but I will not have that advantage in my situation.
Has anyone on these forums flown one of these flights? Is it really as bad as I have read? Any comfort advice to offer? I am a larger woman that usually books premium or comfort seats on International or East-West Coast flights. Booked an aisle seat so I can get up and stand. Not physically confident operating equipment in an Exit row.
I am not able to take any sedatives, including Benadryl, and I do not want to drink much wine on the plane as I will want to be alert when I arrive in Dublin.
Appreciate any advice and thanks in advance.
