777-300 Row 28 question

Hello all,

Have booked a trip in Y for our family, 1-feb-19, BA27 LHR HKG. We are 2 adults, 1 toddler (will be age 4) and 1 infant (will be 10 months).

We have been given free seat selection. The cabin is wide open. I was originally wanting to book 28DEF. Once I got myself with the infant at 28D, neither the toddler or husband can sit in 28F.

Overnight the BA system has automatically allocated us 29ABC. This means we were without a bassinet seat.

So I've now chosen for me to go on 28A, toddler on 28B and husband on 29C.

1. Is this the best choice?
2. Would there be other seat combinations that would be more practical?
3. Does 28A have an actual window? My toddler LOVES air travel and I'd like to be mentally prepared if there isn't an actual window and will have to expend extra energy to keep toddler quiet through the 12 hour flight.

I've scoured the internet for pictures but can't find one which will show me if there is a window or not!

Thanks for the help,
Fish

BA source makes no mention of a missing windows in row 28 of the BA777-300 - and that site is usually spot on for things like that.

Hope this link works

I think I have read on here that 10 months is too big for a bassinet anyway, so I am unsure of the advantage of splitting up rows so one of you have a bassinet seat with a bassinet of little use.

28 is a fantastic row on this aircraft. Before I flew I had the option of the 29C/H (with unlimited legroom) or row 28 and I was very glad I chose 28 upon boarding. I am 6'4.

"3. Does 28A have an actual window?" - Not one but two. Lots of light and room.

I think your choice is excellent - as your husband will have easy access to you both and his extra legroom will be yours to use.

Also YouTube has this guy filming out of 28K on a BA 777-300 so pretty sure 28A will be the same window view to the left wing.

Thank you all!

I think toddler will be most excited. He kept asking when we could go on a plane...

Happy flying,
Dish
