                                          Food very disappointing

                                          As a professional flight attendant I know good service extremely well. I have been flying back-and-forth from the US to Uganda for 20 years, very often several times a year. This is over and above the best customer service, the best hospitality and the friendliest and most helpful crew I have ever encountered. Cheers to the crew on Flight 003 JFK to NBO.
