As others have said, the DL lounges are probably some of the best in the system. Great views, food, the legendary beer machines, macs, showers, etc. Security takes no time at all.

I've done 73A on the 747 in the past, but I've never slept as well as I did on the 777LR. One suggestion, thought it really depends on personal preference, is to sleep in the opposite direction. When I put my seat into the bed mode, I found my head to be lower than my feet, even with the BE pillow. Instead, I now sleep with my head on the footrest (closer to the aisle) which elevates my head above my feet due to the angle in flight. I find it much more comfortable than the normal way.

Also, the row 7 and 14 window seats in BE have a small shelf next to the seat which gives you a little more space. Quite nice to keep a small bag or random things there...
772LR is pretty awesome, the best seat I find is 7A which is quite private, you don't look at anyone and you have an extra shelve.

You are first to be served in 7A as the flight attendants in the back are responsible for your seat as well. Sometimes both front and back crew look after you, so the service is always excellent.

Sleeping I advise asking for an extra comforter and putting on top of the bed. It will give you much more comfortable feel and because your head is below your feet (aircraft is pitched up 3 degrees) fold the top part of the comforter at the head of the bed and lay your pillow there or even better ask for two pillows. I sleep 6-7 hours straight through when I have my businessElite seat like this
