Worst flight of my life -maybe I am judging with severity, but we all say that when we have a bad experience-. Actually my seat number was 50E, but it is equivalent to 55E in the present configuration (i do not know why) Lot of noise and strange abnormal vibrations at the tail all the way long. I could not use the audio of the entertainment system as there was so much noise. Curiously, I could overheard through my seat companion headphones as, I supposed, she had to set the maximum volume on.
I am sure, from a colleague opinion who has done this route with the same aircraft several times, that other more front seats do not suffer from noise and vibration problems.
I do not know what kind of quality tests they have done (could be a design problem of boeing b777-300?) but the vibration, as if someone were beating with a hammer, on my back was unbearable -and it was present for 8 hours-. I had to damper the noise with the provided headphones.
The aircrew was charming and the food was as bad as usual.
