The flight from San Jose Costa Rica (SJO) to Phoenix Sky Harbor is pretty long. About 5.5 hours. My way home would have been better on a first class seat, but you know… Beggars cant be choosers!
This Airbus A319 is a plane with 3 seats per row. I had a window seat. I usually try to get the window seat. I love the view and I can always lean against the window if I get tired.
The flight was smooth but not without its hiccups. This plane did not have TV screens or inflight entertainment. They did not pass out earphones. Its a good thing I downloaded several movies from iTunes to watch.
The leg room was okay. It was average, about 6 or so inches from my knee to the seat in front of me. I should point out that I am 5’6” tall and weigh about 170 LBS. Just to give you perspective. I say this because, I always have about 6 or so inches of leg room in a coach seat but I find my neighbors are always cramped.
The shoulder space was about average. My overly large shoulders always stick out luckily I didnt have anyone next to me, but I did have a neighbor on the isle seat who looked genuinely annoyed every time I needed to use the restroom.
There was a child seated behind me… I should say it was more of a lap infant. It cried for part of the trip but was surprisingly quiet when I decided to sleep. However, while I was sleeping I woke up to that child grabbing at my face. I did not sleep much on the plane.
We were given a cute snack box to eat with a croissant sandwich, a cookie, and some fruit. It managed to stave my hunger off.
The flight was longer than I expected it. I suppose it was the lack of entertainment system on the plane.
We landed in Phoenix for my layover back to Los Angeles.
