There were a few hiccups like long lines getting on the plane, but that was to be expected considering the coronavirus concern and the panic to get back to the US.

Staff nice but friendlier on past flights

I know the flight wasn’t probably as great for the airline to be so empty but was amazing for me. So that delighter was a welcome experience for such a long trip.
