From the boarding process all the way to arrival it was a great experience overall. Brand new planes with free up to date movies. The economy seats truly recline (to what i was very surprised) and the food was pretty good.

One of the flight attendants who stood at the front of the aircraft during boarding did not help us with our luggage placement in the overhead bins by our seats in row two. As a result we had to place one carry on several rows back which did, of course, make it difficult to get to upon landing. Subsequent to that, that same flight attendant helped a young man with his carry on with placement directly above his seat in the first row.Later on, I asked the same flight attendant if I could have some hot water for my wife (helps her with breathing). He came to me with a full cup of very hot, almost scalding, water and a small bottle of water. He did say that the water was very hot, but did not offer any ice to cool it. Naturally, we had no place to partially empty the cup and had to hold it for some time to let it cool. I did ask again for cooler water, but he said none was available.

Where to start, delayed for 5 hours, 4 if which we were just sitting on the plane at JFK, little to no information about what was happening, and when they did say something ift felt like it wasn’t true to get the true information.
