Your performance was great! I was not impressed however with the airline I chose. Will never fly long distance with them again (Norwegian). Very skimpy food, even buying, they didn't have enough stock, not much leg room (was glad I chose an aisle seat) hardly any reclining - really tough on night flights for an older person.
