Bread in general is just a sad story in much of the country when it comes to serving large numbers of people. There are fantastic bakeries in most cities but you won't find their products in anything...

I really, really hate being hot on an airplane.

It's really not complicated, with the only real difference being the need to go through passport control, which would have to be done at some point anyway. Also, connecting in Europe gives the kids...

I don't think that KLM flies to SLC. I think it's only Delta and it is usually a 767. Not a great ride in business (though not awful), but many like it in coach.

I don't really see how someone watching this content on the seatback vs. on a laptop screen is really that different. In both cases it's not appropriate for children and could potentially make other...

Maybe it is the routes I fly (often between west coast cities), but I often find that I am able to SDC. However, I have never been able to get the fee waived for companions (and I have asked).

In general expect the same type of service as domestic first, plus a pre-arrival meal. The seats are a couple of inches wider than A350/777 seats, but don't have leg rests.
