First time on an A380. Booked BA version of economy plus, which is branded as World Traveler Plus. Nice cabin and decent seat on the top deck. Excellent legroom, comfortable seat that reclines well, but for me, not sleepable. The aircraft is quiet and offered a comfortable ride. The IFE was a disaster! The system would lock-up if you accessed the map function, you know, the one with the airplane that barely moves over the ground during the flight. The seats are well designed except when it comes to plugging in the supplied two pronged headsets. The plug port is situated on the inboard side of the seat at thigh level, which makes it perfect for bending the headphone jacks off in the ports with your butt when standing up. This was the case with my seat where a previous passenger had done just that, so I could not have any audio for my non-funtional IFE. 11 hours was a very long time to spend without any diversions! The FAs where kind enough and as helpful as they could be. The food was horrible (advanced meal request not acknowledged) and the drinks where not offered with enough frequncy.
