777s getting old...

This is sad. I loved, for the most part, flying on the 777. It was a Untied flight that was the most disappointing. Seats not working, a lav that was flooded, a purser that yelled at me.

But hearing one passenger say that his seat belt wouldn't work, and having the yelling purser tell him to tie the two ends together was a little distressing.

How many won't come back? Sad...
