FYI - I flew out to UVF last weekend in 4A, I didn't get my first meal choice being sat on this 'last' row. All very frustrating considering the extortionate J fares atm.

From the seat maps, I am guessing row 4 would be the best seats for a centre pair, even though one is a bassinet so currently blocked, as you would have direct aisle access?

Is it T-72h the bassinet seats normally open up? I have searched, it looks like this may not be standard practice anymore so I may have to call. Appreciate any advice!
Checked 2 other LGW routes for the next few days using expert flyer seat maps and it looks like 4E is blocked until check-in opens at T-24.

What's the deal with the 2020 First Suite refurbishment - it looks like there are now 7 aircraft with this on. Are they planning to do it as part of hte Club Suite refurbishment going forward or is it only limited to the G-STB_ aircraft?

Only the 777-300ERs are getting the F seat with the doors

Agreed. Heres a real life picture of it. Really like 1.5 windows.

I was just searching as Prospero posted and found this too. 5K but 5A is a mirror image.

(Nice photos by Prospero)

I'm flying a 77W in J showing CS and those look good to me for a couple, but I'd like to hear what others say. In the configuration I'm in, they are bulkhead seats (just behind F) but I don't think there's any downside.

Just flew it with my wife two nights ago and also back in April. Theyre great seats. Minimal foot traffic, quiet mini cabin, and close to the exit upon landing.

flew in the mini cabin in May, from EWR. Wife and kids had 5,6,7A. I was dumped in the middle. But have to say the suites in the mini cabin are very good. And the quiteness of the cabin was the way forward over the larger cabin

We are tragically flying in Club World on the way back from CPT in November. Its a night flight. I would be grateful for any advice regarding seat selection. We are a couple. My priority is avoiding some kind of awkward stepping over situation with anyone but my girlfriend. I have very little experience flying club world, so any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Screenshot of the available seats below - we are both BA Gold.




Edit: it is proving very tricky to amend this post on mobile. I wanted to say our priorities are a good nights sleep and not having to step over other passengers or having them step over us. Thank you!
