ATH
Mediocre 2,6

Pros: It was a less old plane than in my JNB-DXB flight, but still old.

Cons: The outdated and unresponsive entertainment interface, the lack of legroom under the seats, and the fact that the already-limited legroom for middle seats must be shared, leading to tensions between passengers.
