Best Seat Business Class AF 777-300

Hi All, going to be taking the new business class product from SFO to CDG. The bulkhead seats 9A and 9L just opened up. I'm wondering if these are good seats to grab. I know they are close to lavatory but curious if the bulkhead gives any extra space, extra window, etc... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Link to map is below

Thank you,

The BEST seats are all the same. So no extra legroom or more windows depending on the row.

I like any of the first three rows in the smaller forward cabin.

I was in 10L last week from JFK to CDG, so 9 was right in front. That seat did look pretty private as the gallery was to the left of it. I would definitely take that seat in future.assuming the same cabin configuration.

Bumping this just in case anyone has any further thoughts, as I'll be flying LAX-CDG on the AF 777-300 for the first time, in business class. Might the first row (row 3) window seat in the small forward cabin be a bit better?

This is my row of choice in J when flying the 77W with P. Smaller cabin and served 1st.

Except for row 15, which has a "blind window". Even if you have 15A or 15K you'll be sitting next to a wall. It feels a bit claustrophobic

And then when the crew moves back to the (much) larger rear J cabin, are the pax up front more or less ignored? I'd think it would be easier to get the attention of an FA from the larger cabin (e.g., for a drink refill or to remove your tray if you're done quickly), so I've almost never chosen the mini cabin on any airline, although a 4-row mini cabin I suppose is better than the 2 rows many other airlines have on the 77W (as they normally have 2 rows of F, vs. AF's 1).

No, not in my experience, and I also always choose the forward cabin in J if possible.
