Actually this was a round trip, but my seat #64E on the upper level was in the middle in Premium Economy. It was a bit wider and more leg room with leg rest. It was the only seat I could find and paid $84.00 for it. It was no worth it. I was not happy, but the other option would have been at the end of the plane by the lavatories. The woman next to me got drunk because of the free alcohol that British airways was serving. She broke a glass, luckily my foot was not in the way. She was in and out of her seat to the lavatories and up and down to get her carryone out. she even left the luggage next to her seat blocking some of the aisle and it was hard for me to cross over the luggage to walk out of my middle seat. I am disapointed at British Airways' for serving free alcohol. There is not need to it. People become drunk and lose control and become abnoxious. The seat design is not the greatest. The food was average, but the pizza was terrible. The portions were limited. Quality of could be have been better. Layover in London for 5 hours was a too long. And above that there was an additional 1 hour - delay before departure. My fitbit regisered 2+ miles from the walking I did at the British terminal waiting. The woman in the seat in front of me had her seat reclined in my face and I was not able to move. Some people are so unconsiderate to others. On the other hand, the older man from Los Angeles - on my left side - was a respectful man, pleasant to talk to, careful with his moving in and out of his seat.

Glass bottles, cups, etc. should not be used. Alcohol should not be served. reducing the prices of the tickets is much better than all the nonsense freebies Bristish airways gives the traveller. The point is for all passengers to travel safely and eat enough to be able to rest and get to your destination on time and without delays.

Also, carryone luggage is getting out of control because the airlines are overcharging for each piece of luggage. People bring 2 or 3 carryon pieces and they stuff it in the overhead compartment if there is room and then, they get up and open the bin and get their stuff out and again and again.

Anyway, it is what it is, the airlines are in it for making money. I will keep on travelling but in a different category, perhaps my experience would be better. Enjoy travelling!
