Well at least the international flight on the B777-300 was not bad at all. The service on board was amazing, a lot of space between the seats, the entertainment system could be way better, the food on board was okay.

Overall a very good experience especially considering the price I paid. Only negatives were that the entertainment system wasn't working on two out of four legs. Not a biggie but come on it's easy to fix. Staff were not over friendly and maybe need to so learn a little more English to accommodate non Portuguese speakers. But generally they did...

what frustrated me was language.... and hostesses aren’t prepared to help you understand if you are an English speaking person. They are not approachable.
