Meanwhile their safety video still asks you to not talk loudly to avoid spreading viruses...

777-300 old config - I really appreciate Aerolopa.
I initially had 5H since it was really the only window seat apart from the rear mini cabin, and I preferred not to sit on the wing. However, it only had one window.
After checking the seatmap periodically, 6K became available and I snagged it. There’s a non-trivial amount of galley noise though from staff preparing food, but it was still more private and obviously had better views than 5H.
