A 9 hour journey became 14 hours, no tissue in the toilet, only stopped once, a horrendous experience

Good things: reclining seats, working toilet on board. The bad: freezing aircon, driver plays very loud music all night so can't sleep. Curly toads on way to Cali, very bumpy and almost fell out of seat. Some seats did not have working seatbelts.
