So this was my first time traveling with US Airways, and having read numerous comments of travelers about the seats here being much better than the intra-Europe flights by the European carriers, I was really curious if there was something more than the better seats.

From the adjustable monitor, I watched World War Z and thought it was a very interesting movie. We were actually informed that the flight was not meant to have the IFE running but those who had their own headphones could use it. Fortunately, I had my lovely Emirates headphones with me 😉
So there it was, my first flight with US Airways from Cancun to Charlotte. And how good was my experience? I have to say the seats were ok as well as the service. One thing I expected to be served on board though was a light meal or something considering that the flight was more than 2 and a half hours long but obviously, they only serve snacks on board. At least in my experience flying business class intra-Europe, they have always served meals like from Stockholm to Frankfurt which is a much shorter flight. Otherwise, I agree with those saying they prefer the US Airways seats because the intra-European have normal seats with the middle seat being blocked. Still, if I were to choose, I would always go for the European carriers.
