Overall, this was, at best "average".


Unfortunately, my wife has a medical condition which required that she blend some medication. She had purchased a blender for the same.  The motor of the blender was taken from her when we went through security, with a note attached that it was for medical purposes.  In spite of numerous requests, she did not get the unit back until the end of the trip when she got up at 6:30 AM and retrieve the same.
