I'm a window/bulkhead guy, so I would take 16A. Had that seat before and liked it. Plus, I think that side is the non-sunny side on that route.

To heck with leg room; you won't take the chance of having a Sumo Wrestler next to you in 1A, if that matters to you. Once you've had one next to you, it'll matter, trust me.
