Going out the seats were probably the seats with the most leg room on the whole plane, but the open space was a mecca for passengers to use as space to stand around, a simple solution was to spread out with our hand luggage building some space around us, the other issue was the toilet door, bang bang bang, right through the flight. We booked two seats and were pleased to see that the third seat wasn't taken so we could take a seat either side giving us both two arm rests, which was good, as the seats at 17" are narrow. The other problem I had was I'm not slim, and the fold out table was just too close to me to be of any use, so luckily I had the table next to me to use when the meals came.
On the return we were not so lucky as all 3 seats were taken, but although we had less space in front of us, the leg room was more than enough, and putting my neck cushion inside the magazine rack on the wall in front of me gave me a fantastic footrest. I managed to sleep a lot of the flight home, but when awake it did feel cramped. On the particular plane we were on the screen on 10J didn't work for movies, only for announcements.
If ever we go on a dream liner again we will try to get the economy premium seats, an added expense, but the plane is just a bit too narrow for the 9 seats across set up.
