Hello and welcome to my America Trip of 2017.

Planned flights:

TLV (Tel Aviv, Israel) -> IST (Istanbul, Turkey) TK Y B77W TLV-IST, Tap It!
IST (Istanbul, Turkey) -> BOG (Bogota, Columbia) TK Y A332 IST-BOG, Tap It!
BOG (Bogota, Columbia) -> PTY (Panama City, Panama) TK Y A332 BOG-PTY, Tap It!
PTY (Panama City, Panama) -> SJO (San Jose, Costa Rica) CM Y B73G PTY-SJO, Tap It!
SJO (San Jose, Costa Rica) -> EWR (Newark, NJ, USA) UA Y B738 SJO-EWR, Tap It!
EWR (Newark, NJ, USA) -> TLV (Tel Aviv, Israel) UA Y B77W YOU ARE HERE!/VOUS ETES ICI!

After 1 month in America, It was time to go back home until the next flight (2 weeks later).
I took the NJTransit train from Penn Station to the airport. It took about 30 min and cost 13$. I think that this is the best option to get to Newark Airport from Manhatten.

I knew about this delay only when I lived the apartment:

The check-in, security and passport control took about 20 minutes. It was quick!

Conclusion

I really enjoyed this flight with United even the flight had a dealy. The 777-300ER is a very comfortable aircraft. It wasn't tight even there are 10 seats per row.
The Cabin Crew was nice too. I didn't eat the dinner but the breakfast was really nice and also the mid-flight snacks.
There are many movies and TV programs in their entertainment system.
I would like to fly again on United's long-haul routes.
