What are ghetto upgrades?
AKA poor mans F (lie flat)
extra seats
the 340 is a 2-4-2 and on an emptyish flight you can get a full 4 for yourself in the back

Yup the huge Windows, that don't fully block out light.

I flew on AC 787 to TLV and it was by far my worse experience. It never gets dark outside this time of year and you have those windows that don't shut >:(
Do they not have shades? Or buttons that darken it electronically? How do they keep the cabin dark when they want to?

No shades, it has a few levels of brightness, though never goes completely dark.

Do you do that route often?

I'm currently debating between VS45 (LHR-JFK) in the old A340 and VS1 (LHR-EWR) in the brand new B787-900.
They would both be in Y but the latest would mean paying an extra $40 for a taxi.
It would be my first time on the B78-9.

Is it worth it?
Just landed, gorgeous Y cabin, great service.

Do they have a website? Or vrbo listing?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Frankly, if CX weren't nonstop, I'd choose AC any day.

And, I paid $12 for AJK Jr, as opposed to 10% on CX. No brainer.

How kids change our travel plans... (though as you said AC 773 is quite nice, even in Y).
