PradaFA -- thanks for the question. My experience with CO FAs has been (almost) uniformly excellent. Just a couple ideas:

I assume they'll extort you when you check it in. So if you have to pick it up and recheck it, then you'll be coughing up the bucks. In any case, you need to check it when you leave Europe, and...

Interesting point, but the airline doesn't actually reserve you a full seat. It's more like some pizza joint cooking a bunch of identical pizzas, which you have to order 21 days in advance (prices go...
