Ten year old aircraft with entertainment system that was showing its age and wear and tear. I couldn't be bothered with it after about 20 minutes. Standard poor economy seat width and comfort. It was easily wide enough for me to get in but for eleven hours would be nice to have some wiggle room. Comfort is not dissimilar to flying in a 757 to Lanzarote. I can stick that for 4 hours but would expect a bit more for nearly three times as long.
The seat actually wasn't in a bad position given its proximity to the loo. The toliet is right behind the seat but the door is on the other side and its proximity to the galley tended to restrct the number of people going past. The sound of the flush is no greater than for anyone within about 5 rows of a toilet and didn't stop me from dozing off. Normal recline on the seat and I was able to stretch my legs out under the seat in front. Crew were friendly and service was good. The breakfast croissant was 'interesting' and gave the impression of having been stood on prior to being microwaved. 2-4-2 configuration is adequate.
