I will flying on a 744 and a 772 with an infant in Business class. What is the best seat for a bassinet?

Are you positive there IS a bassinet in business. The only seat where it may be possible is in the first row bulkhead. When the business seats go into their slanted flat position there is no room on the floor for anything!
I know you didn't ask but your infant would be a lot safer if you skipped business, and bought an extra coach seat and strapped the baby into an airplane approved car seat! Do you realize that the only thing that is not completely secured on a plane is your baby! (unless in a car seat) I am not sure if a car seat can be securely fastened into the business seat--you'd have to ask!

Are you positive there IS a bassinet in business. I don't think there is (unlike BA for instance) but the op didn't ask which are the Bassinet seats in C, but which are the best seats to use.
El Al's seat maps of both the 777 (http://www.elal.co.il/NR/rdonlyres/EFA59143-E79B-435C-91A2-1F02907BBE47/0/Plane777200.swf) and the 747 (http://www.elal.co.il/NR/rdonlyres/281CE28E-26C9-4E11-9C64-E51C30CB9FB9/0/Plane747400.swf) show bassinets located in front of the bulkhead rows in business class in the 777 (12 D & G) and both first (2H) and business classes (10 A & D) in the 747.
I am in total agreement with awayIgo about your baby having his or her own seat for safety reasons.
