Super diamond is a great seat with lots of storage and I liked that screens don't have to be folded back during takeoff/landing. That being said, the 77W seats feel roomier overall.

The hospitality staff usually are not airline staff. Many are contracted staff that don't even get simple benefits, let alone travel. My local airport uses Sodexho, for example.
