my trip to Toronto was vey pleasant and the choice of food as well as the choice of films was very good. was not happy on the way back to London Gatwick , there were not hot drinks on offer and even though it was very cold evening, I was severed a frozen little barley salad and not a very pleasant hot sandwich just before arriving to Gatwick, shame not even a cup of tea as I said before ...don't know what went wrong with the hot drinks.
