Flight was comfortable, until the flight attendant moved another passenger into the empty H seat next to me about 45 minutes into the flight. It seemed the man's wife, whom he had originally been sitting next to, wanted more elbow room to spread out. Unfortunately, this now meant that I had none and I wound up standing for most of the 12 hour flight. I have a spinal injury that makes it very difficult to get comfortable on long flights, especially when having to fight with the guy next to me for the armrests. As a result, I wound up in alot of pain and exhausted from the flight after getting no sleep at all. To make matters worse, my connecting flight with American was cancelled for ever-changing reasons and I could no longer stand up in their line, because I was so tired from this flight. Also, nearly every toilet was dirty within 2 hours after takeoff, I had to replace the toilet paper in 4 different toilets during the flight, after the flight attendant showed me how to open the storage cabinet behind the mirror. Also, by mid-flight the plane was very dirty with garbage, soiled napkins and other paper products all over the floor. On the upside, the food was good (they ran out of the chicken by the time I was served dinner, so I had the other meat by necessity) and the cabin crew was pretty pleasant. The flight was also very close to on time.
