The satellite should have enough fuel to last 22 years in orbit — seven longer than the design life of most geostationary spacecraft — thanks to the effectiveness of the Block 5 upper stage, according to SES Chief Technology Officer Martin Halliwell as quoted in Florida Today.

No net, retrieved it. Some tests; stronger canopy & lines (both of which have frayed or tangled), rough accuracy etc. don't really need catching the fairing to be successful.
