Or unless you have an infant who needs the bassinet, and I recognize they may not be reserved as in confirmed or guaranteed but when we have requested them ahead of time with a baby we have always gotten them.

Crazy Canuck I had two flights last week and the week before in first and conincidentally between YVR and LHR (not that it matters). I had 1A on both flights and the downside to 1A is that it is right next to the closet, it is the most private seat except when everyone is getting on board and going to the closet opening and closing it, then it is probably the least private. The closet makes it seem a bit more enclosed which may be good or bad depnding on your preference. I think 2A or 2K is a good compromise between privacy and space.
