Flying direct from Oakland to Barcelona on Norwegian's Dreamliner was a dream. The plane still had that "new car" smell. And it's true that I suffered less jet lag. Still, coach is coach and the seats are small and uncomfortable for a 9 hour flight. We, and most of the passengers, paid the extra money to select seats, have a meal, and luggage. It was still by far the cheapest direct flight to Barcelona. The person sitting next to us went on the cheap. It was difficult watching her as the food came along ordering "water, please" over and over again. The flight attendant finally gave her a large container of water. We enjoyed small but tasty dinner and breakfast with free wine and snacks.
