Any thoughts?
IPTE C in the 747-400 is always going to be a better pick because of the wider cabin fuselage. This means the middle 4 seats, especially the middle most seats, aren’t as quite close together. Further, downstairs IPTE C seats on the 747 ate fractionally wider and longer than the 777 (upper-deck are shorter and more angled), and my perception was that the aisles were always a hair wider.

The only thing to say about the IPTE 777 is that some may prefer this option because of the small C mini-cabin behind F.
