Glad that you had a great F trip.

Despite some negative posts in other recent threads from me and others, there are some great crews.

Good to hear after some of the other negative reports. I experienced a good trip in NF to DXB in April and hoping the next one to SFO/LAX in a couple of weeks time is as good.

I wrote a TR on the DXB experience and it didn't get any response on here and some limited responses on the Trip Report forum - my view is people don't like good news, but will respond to any negative feedback.

I had a near faultless F return to GRU in March, NF both ways. What to say: the champagne and sandwiches in in the CR were nice; the seats were comfortable, dinner was pretty good, bed made up nicely, slept all the way to Brazil.

Who'd respond to that?

Sorry I have noticed and read your trip report. It was enjoyable to read, I had forgotten to comment that was the only reason.

Oh alright you forced it out of me... on the flight down it was my first NF, and we were in the middle 2 seats, row 4. No-one showed me the personal wardrobe which was a bit out of sight, so i bundled my clothes in one of the the overhead bins. That's all. On the way back we had 1A/K and one of the crew offered to show me the features of NF, including the much more acccessible personal wardrobe those seats have.

Nothing major.

Glad you enjoyed!

I'm far more interested in your username though! Is there a thread about it somewhere?

Great - I'm looking forward to my first First to GRU in a couple of weeks - hope we have a similar experience to yours.

I thought I was being so original in doing YYZ in F.

As malkie says, the judges will have an unprecedented ability to compare the reports when it comes to TR of the Year 2011
