787 seats in Y are paper thin. The IFE boxes under the seats severely restrict footroom space by 50% (you must wedge your feet next to the box). I find the seats desperately uncomfortable even on the 45min hop over the pond from DOH-DXB. I pity the poor souls who have to endure long-haul/ultra long-haul on this....

Like many others, I was excited for the launch of this plane. As big an anti-climax as making Gold in the Privilege Club
