I always fly coach. I have flown a lot. I have grandchildren and family in Europe and Hawaii and all over the U.S. and I go often. I am 67 years old and have been around. I enjoy flying and really kind of like airplane food--a lot of different taste treats. It seems funny now when I describe to friends my flight of torture on Alitalia but it was not funny as I experienced a 12 1/2 flight wanting to scream. I have NEVER been so cramped in my life. No place to even put my feet because of a structural aspect of the cabin. The seat in front of me almost dug into my knees. The food was, for the most part, inedible. The flight attendants offered minimal service although they were not rude. They enjoyed socializing with other so that was kind of fun to watch. I will never fly Alitalia again and recommend no one else does either.
