Yes, they fold down from the seat in front of you, unless you are in row 10 and then you get a pouffe.

I think the VA Y+ seats are comparable in comfort.

Also, everything else is comparable to QF except the food, which is much better on QF.

Yes, it is a flip-down bar - not ideal but as you said, better than nothing. We flew in Y with Emirates from Perth to Europe return about 5 years ago, but all the footrests had been removed, which I didn't realise until we were onboard - being quite short, I REALLY need some sort of footrest to have any sort of comfort at all on a longhaul flight, so was not an enjoyable experience at all (it was a pretty awful trip all round with Emirates and we'd never fly them again anyway!).
