Flights Review

Jun 22, 2019

United Flight from Houston to San Diego was 3.20 min. TV screen controls are on the left arm rest and my neighbor kept his elbows on the arm rest most of the time. When I got a brake to Cinthia my screen, he would plop his elbow on the armrest and switch my program and disrupt the volume. That was a disappointing side of that long flight on a 737. Needs an upgrade or put it in shatter flights.
