Conclusion

To sum up, it was a surprise flight for me. It was my first time took 772.
This plane it provide good maintenance and the seat is modern. It enough for short flight.

The food is tasty and the flight attendant it smile enough. Let me feel at home.
Due to the strong tail wind, the flight was bit dumpy.

The last thing, it quite surprise that the light loading. Maybe it is non-peak season for traveler.

Hope can enjoy this beauty bird again.
