The minute I stepped on the plane I realized, this was going to be a VERY long flight. Come on IBERIA, member of the Alliance OneWorld blah blah blah…. where are the individual entertainment system/screens on your A-340/600? .

Seriously, do you expect me/us to spend over 12 hours watching a screen located 8 rows ahead, to in the end find out that the movie being broadcasted is “Alice in Wonderland “…. really. Then where are my 3D glasses.!!!!!! ha ha ha.

So I decided to look out the window, till the sun came down. Thank God I had my 2 sleeping pills (that are my travel buddies) and my Google Nexus One phone with a whole variety of podcasts, and yes including my beloved Suze Orman.  Of course, this was the curse to the flight attendants, whom aparently do not understand yet the concept of Airport Mode, therfore they kept asking me over and over to turn it off for the whole lenght of the flight. Paraphrasing you, dear Suze, any future long haul flights with IBERIA under Airbus A-340/600 are overrated and DENIED.
