Despite our reservations with paid seat selection, my husband and I received boarding passes that left us seated apart. I had my original reservation print out with seat selection confirmation (paid for) so the flight attendant moved us to a 2-seat area. It was unnerving until the seating problem was resolved. The legroom was tight but the seat recline worked, thankfully, on the intercontinental flight. Poor service; lack of water offered during the flight. I'm used to most airlines having attendants walk the aisles at night with bottles of water at periodic and frequent intervals. Our connecting flight in Europe had no gate assignment until 60 minutes prior to takeoff--that had a lot of us wondering why because in Lisbon they have a multitude of gates and it could have been a mad rush. The final continental flight was on an aircraft with seats that did not move. I felt so trapped and closed-in. The seat back distance felt much closer than on the transatlantic flight.
