Check in at LAX was speedy and courteous and I was whisked through with personal assistance at the boarding pass kiosk. I had upgraded to Premium Economy as I wanted more legroom than in Economy. It was quite expensive but I needed the space, and it was nice to board before the Economy fliers .I was a little surprised that the seat itself was not more comfortable. In the upright position one feels a little thrust forward, and have to stay that way whenever the seat belt sign is on. But when in recline position it was just OK, not wonderful. There are various slightly complicated controls that one is expected to know about such as reaching over one's lap with TWO hands to lift the Recline and Tilt Controls. I found the control mechanisms in general annoying and not that obvious how to work. The tray table can be pulled out at various angles and so can the tv screen but in the dark and when tired, you fumble around to figure out what to press even after having seen the instructional video. It was nice not to have someone too close to me as the middle section seating is in a crescent shape and the other occupant was facing outward at an angle, as I was. The airline staff were all very nice and it was a pleasant and smooth flight. Current movies were not of interest to me so I concentrated on Classics and Award Winning films. Chicken entree was delicious but why serve prawns for starters, with no choice? Many people don't eat shellfish or have restrictions. I skipped the prawns and also skipped breakfast which was a fancy kind of quesadilla the like of which i have never seen in LA, a little too over the top gourmet and health-food tasting . I just ate the croissant. I would fly this category again to get the extra legroom and courteous customer service, but not specially for the seating which I would rate average.
