I wouldn’t have thought 11:00 would be a peak time, but we live and learn.

I asked the lady if I could come back in half an hour and get...

Thanks for the reply! Hmm, that wasn’t my understanding and is different to the polices of other airlines and regulators around the world. Do you have anything in writing I can refer to for details?...

I took a day flight (on I think a KE 787?) a while back, for the same reason as OP. The crew force-dimmed the electronic window shades for the whole Y cabin after the meal, so I couldn't override it....
