B789 PE seating bulkhead vs not 23K vs 24K

Am in 24K NZ99 and Expertflyer has 23K empty a little more than 24 hours prior to departure.

Not flown PE since spaceseat went - wondering what the bulkheads are like. Its a day flight, Im 1.93m, don't want to sleep and travelling solo. What is the TV and table like - cumbersome? Reviews. I see from another forum that sbiddle likes 24K (hence my original choice 11.5 months ago).

TIA

I would never pick a 789 bulkhead row unless there were no other seats. The actual personal space isn't really that much better. Yes it is easier to get out if you're in the window seat, but that's possible in other seats without requiring the person in the aisle to get up (just can be a little bit more difficult if the seats in front are both fully reclined).

Code1 has the IFE screen in the bulkhead and it's too far away to reach when you're reclined. Code 2 has the IFE screen in the seat which I hate as the angles are just totally wrong for watching content for any sustained period of time.

Being tall however may invalidate my reasons for not liking it!
