Reflections on a EWR-LAX in C on a 777

I’m going to rehash what many other threads contain. I do this at the risk of it being merged, but here it goes anyway.

I flew EWR-LAX earlier this week. It was on a 777 in C, 2-4-2 layout. The seat was comfy. The food was good. The service was just fine. WIFI worked. Entertainment was better than normal. Flight was on time (early arrival), and the gate at LAX was vacant, so no waiting.

I thought about when PS service first came out. Such a stark difference:

1) No lie flat seats in C.
2) Worn down RCC.
3) Out of the way JFK airport.
4) Comparatively poor entertainment option
5) Really cumbersome charging ports

And yet....

And yet, those old PS flights were so much better.

Boarding was a breeze.
There was a feeling of ample space.
Service was refined and personalized.
JFK RCC agents were the best.
The whole concept was a separate entity. PS was dedicated to two routes. It made things special.
The elusive double upgrade!
