Also, even 5 across is NOT a proper C class seating, for proper C class look for SU (leather proper seats, 4 across, with lumbard support and full adjustment). MA C is mediocre, but not horrible. Try Tokaji dessert wine agfter dinner.
I usually fly HEL-BUD, 99% they have C seating in the first 4 raws + 5A&5C. Depending on C load, you may end up in those seats even flying Y, I always ask for raw 4 and sometimes get lucky :-)

On this route AY has only Y seating in C, I rather not take it - on a 2 hrs flight I value the seat more than the catering, which is nice in AY C.

Edit: last weekend was 50-50% with C seats and regular Y seats all the way.
