The Premiuim Select seats were really lots and had lots of space, even when the seat in front of me was fully reclined. Very nice footrests, headrests, and the recline of the seat was great. Our guide referred to these seats as the “old first class” amenities such as meal and drink services.

After the aircraft tour, we were taken down to the control room to see all of the behind the scenes operations. They have people monitoring Twitter so if any customers tweet with an issue, they will have someone in front of that person within 5 minutes to help resolve their issue. We saw how all aspects are managed including weather, baggage, delays, rescheduling, and more! Finally, we went into the air traffic control tower and got to watch the plane we had just toured take off to Tokyo!
