    thanks for the nice trip report. it’s probably doable for a quick 6.5 hr hop from JFK to LHR, but I can’t imagine doing that Y- seat for 16.5 DFW-HKG if the cabin is full and no “free 3 seats” row to lie down upon

    I recall this flight back in January and it was one of the few overnight Europe flights where I wasn’t able to sleep much (it was the night of your Finnair debacle).

    i just did this crap seat. same issues with the screen not movable, the pitch, the width, could go on and on. i was in the middle aisle with 2 open and it still was miserable.
