Will be flying DOH-SYD J in a few months, and not looking forward to the disturbance if another pax needs to get out from the window. Last flew this sort of J layout in EK and am not a fan of it.
QR's seats have at least 20 inches more pitch than EK's layout. QR's J seats are six across, and very very spacious. There is enough space to scoot over the person next to you to get out. I would pick the center seats, as you can get the whole aisle just to yourself.

QR has 78" pitch, 22" wide seats (6 across) http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Qat..._777-300ER.php
EK has 60" pitch, 20.5" wide seats (7 across) http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Emi...ss_private.php

Even when compared to EK's A380, EK has 48" pitch, 18.5" wide seats (in a staggered layout), QR is still vastly superior. http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Emi...bus_A380_B.php
