Overall Air Astana were a very nice airline to travel with however a few things lowered the score slightly. 1. I booked a window seat specifically for the 2nd flight however the plane layout was different and I ended up in an aisle seat. 2. No vegetarian/vegan snack was offered to me on the 2nd flight. I ensured I confirmed my dietary requirements before flying and reminded the onboard crew but there was no alternative snack offered. Eating the one provided would have caused an allergic reaction so it’s good that I checked the ingredients. 3. No individual entertainment system on the 2nd flight of nearly 7hrs was unexpected.
