We flew from Tel Aviv to Amsterdam, and then on to Detroit in Delta One, a very pleasant way to fly. The seats recline to flat, and though they aren't wide, they are definitely extremely more comfortable than economy seats with no room to stretch at all. The food is also pretty good. My only problem was that the tray table was stuck in its little niche, and after several flight attendants had failed to release it, finally they called a big Chicago Irish steward from the back of the plane. He was very happy to do it, though it never quite went back into its slot.
|The appetizer tray. The Thai coconut soup was very good. The "Ginger Marinated Prawns |
with Cucumber Relish, Black Sesame Seeds, and Yuzu Mayonnaise" were not as
tasty as the description sounded. The pumpkin seeds in the green salad were ok.
|Beef Tenderloin: too well-done for my taste.|
I have one or two more posts with photos from my long stay in Israel, and then I'll be back to my usual blogging!
