Legroom was good. Seats are not very comfortable since they do not recline. Maybe add a slight tilt to them via washers on the bolts on the front of the seats.

A very long way to the connecting flight and no update on the delays were frustrating! It was messy at Frankfurt Airport. Thank God for the masks, we couldn't smell each other after all the running and rushing around.

The boarding process was unusually long on all four of the flights I took recently. Either people are boarding out of their zones being called, or the zones are backwards. It appeared that people in the aisle seats were seated first but then had to get up to allow window seat passengers to get settled. It should be reversed.
