Yes it has improved but not in the way most people would think of. There still no legroom to speak of when you are 6'6" and no meals or movies on our five hour flight to Washington. However, things have dramatically improved with our travelling companions than when Les had to take a 24 month old Molly and a 4 month old Finny on a 12 hour flight by herself.
The kids have been great. We stopped at The Cheesecake Factory on the way down and filled up for our long trip with an awesome lunch. Three and half hours into this flight the girls have been writing in their journal or doing math for the whole time....without us even asking....which pretty much makes them perfect travelling companions to me.
