Landed Atlanta POE about 2hrs ago and entry was breeze.

The line to immigration was quite short so got to the CBP officer quickly.

Interview was short as well, lasted barely 5mins. The guy had sent 2 people out of the about 6 I saw onthe line before me to secondary. So I assumed the officer was going to be thorough.

After initial pleasantries, picture was taken.

Questions as follows :

CBP Officer : What's your name?
Me: xxxxxx
CBP: where are you going to?
Me: Houston
CBP: Houston Texas?
Me: Yes
CBP: For what?
Me: Vacation
CBP: Who are you seeing
Me: My friend
CBP: Girl friend?
Me: Yes
CBP: Is she Nigerian?
Me: Yes, she's Nigerian.
CBP: How long are you staying?
Me: 4 weeks
CBP: When was the last time you were here?
Me: July
CBP: How long did you stay?
Me: 3 weeks
CBP: What do you do in Lagos?
Me: I am a finance professional
CBP: How much do you have with you?
Me: xxxxxx
CBP: Enjoy your stay (stamps my passport)
Me: Thank you.

Haven't flown them in over 10 years last I did their premium economy was just as "uncomfy" as the main cabin. Then I think it was the 787s

Flew Delta from Lagos on the 26th.

The economy was okay......don't know how much better the economy comfort is.

They served dinner (fried rice with beaf, jollof rice with chicken), light snack and then light breakfast just before arrival.

Their staff are not as polite/friendly as Qatar or Emirates.

The flight full and service was just okay........at least no need for unnecessary stop overs.

Does Arik not fly to NY anymore from naija and back?
I HATE full airplanes!
American FAs are a beast they don't care. They just wanna do the damn shift and get the Bleep home.
One reason I prefer European or Middle eastern.

Did main cabin have AC output?

Unfortunately will be using them this time

I don't think Arik still flies to NY.

The main cabin had a USB output for charging....i did not notice any AC output.

They also had free whatsapp messaging via their inflight wifi.

European airlines like Lufthansa, BA are no longer any better lately.

They are beginning to follow the same suit as the American airlines too.

Now the Middle Eastern airlines are still the best if you don't mind the extremely long flights and layover sometimes.

Hmmm, KLM /Air France…I learnt they were kind of okay but at times have had issues with people's languages not arriving with them especially with flights arriving in Nigeria.
