The flight was on time and sitting in a bulkhead window seat gave me more flexibility to get in and out without really disturbing my neighbor. Also I had my choice of meals assured being in the front.
I hope the lack of menu was a one off experience instead of a cost cutting drive. Catering on CM is not the best but I appreciate that they try to serve a meal and snack on North American flights. Also having a choice of dressings, main dish and dessert is a plus.
