Very efficient. Would have preferred seat back screens but only 4 hours so shared screens were fine.

We were told to shut window blinds with no explanation as to why. When I enquired as to why, I was told because the tv screens were unable to be seen and also there was nothing to be seen out of the window. This was 2pm in the afternoon and as I was reading it was irrelevant and the plane felt like a coffin.
