Just the WiFi didn’t work

The free entertainment options from San Jose, Costa Rica to Mexico City were phenomenal! Lots of newly released movies to choose from!! However, the selection on the flight from Mexico City to Portland, Oregon were awful. There were only three movies available and I hadn't heard of any of them. Two of them were not very good. There wasn't even any kids shows available. It was a big contrast from the first leg of the flight. Also, the dinner on the second flight was pretty awful: very salty chicken with spinach, wilted lettuce for salad, and soupy chocolate pudding.
