Were people sitting for most of the flight?
I barely recall sitting at all on UA747.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Not at all. Though they had everyone seated for the drawing of the 747 for safety reasons. They dropped from 37,000 ft to 10,000 ft and went to half speed to improve accuracy. And there was lots of turning.... But for the most part, very unrestricted. Especially in the ultra spacious premium cabins. Was easily able to hang around on the upper deck without getting in the way of the seated passengers. Just tons and tons of space. (The main thing that new premium cabins lack)

That guy has never been on board El Al. That rule, where everyone must be seated one hour before landing, doesn't apply on LY flights.
