Basically, it's a BOB service. They eliminated the free food in Y on that route some time ago. They don't accept cash for alcoholic drinks or for food - cards only.
As with the rest of their Boeing narrowbody fleet, the seats are a little narrower than the Airbii at around 17in. Pitch is listed as 34in. I'm 6ft4 and, although never flown PS in Y, I have flown their regular 757's in Y+ and, apart from the lack of shoulder room, I was pretty comfortable. Legroom was OK. From what I hear, I wouldn't try for the bulkhead seats as you'll be less comfortable.
Entertainment is on overhead screens - likely a movie and some short features. If you're lucky, they'll also enable Channel 9 which is a nice way to pass the time, particularly if the movie is crap.
Overall, their ps Y service is OK - certainly less "premium" than it was when they launched it. It's now the same as any 757 Y+. It's nice that the aircraft is pretty low density as boarding and disembarkation are pretty quick.
