I'd always opt for an A or K seat personally.

Should I go for 63B or 64B or a "regular" window seat on the main deck on the 70J config? Everything else is pretty much gone...

For those of us who love the upper deck, it is not a hard choice. Go upper deck!

I would choose a window seat regardless if UD or main deck. Much more privacy.

Shouldn't the 48J 3-class 777 front cabin rows be numbered 1-4 (centre block) and 2-5 (window/aisle)?
And will there be a 40J 3-class 777 plan (majority at LGW) with front cabin rows 1-3 (centre block) and rows 2-4 (window/aisle)?
Or am I confused (quite likely )

Not strange at all - who makes the 747 and 777?

Can anyone confirm that the seat plan taken from Expedia (US) for an upcoming LAS flight would be the following config:

Edit: link doesn't work.

Basically, it's not showing a 4JK or a 3GH. As I'll be in the air at T-24, I'll be asking someone else to OLCI for me so I want to give them my preferred seats.

Not likely as there is only one aircraft still flying with that configuration. I think BA loads this seat plan as a default. When OLCI opens you should see 48J seat plan with the front cabin rows be numbered 1-4 (centre block) and 2-5 (window/aisle)

Thanks. Although I'm now confused. The 3 class 48J config as shown in the photo at the top of this page looks as though the rows are 1-4 and 10-11 eg 4A,B,D,E,F,G,J,K.

Are you saying that on OCLI there will be 5A,B and J,K but no 5 DEFG? If this is the case then maybe the seat plan photos on this page need replacing.

The map shows the correct seating but the seat row numbering is wrong.
Row 1 is the front middle row only, the windows/aisles seats are 2 to 5.
Yes correct, row 5 is AB and JK only.

Many thanks, CIHY. A correction has now been made to the seat plan.

Yes, on two 777's we have 5AB and JK. They are the YMM* aircraft. They're the same seats as 4AB JK on the other 777's we have, ie. the best seats!

They always operate the MLE and SSH routes, and also the TPA, KIN, MBJ and ANU/PUY will sometimes operate on them. All other Caribbean routes operate on the VII* seriess.
