Urgent seat help needed after op up - boarding soon...!

In cab my seat changed from WTP to Club and I need to know whether my seat choice is best (Iím totally unprepared!)

There are just ailse seats free 14b downstairs, one mid cabin upstairs and 1 middle seat Upstairs 52E...which I currently have.

iím 6í4Ē and plan to sleep a little but love privacy - previously only been window in Club and like it and middle duo with my partner which I liked. Worried middle single will be a little like a coffin but can change in lounge if needed...

what do you think - middle upper deck single or Ďnormalí ailse?

If you want privacy stick with what you have.

Do you really want privacy? If you do, then you won't get it in the aisle seats. That would seem to answer your original question.

If you're asking about the balance between privacy which you like and coffin-like which you don't, then you're really on your own here as that sort of assessment is purely personal. The only advice for that is to try it once and see whether or not you feel like it, so that you'll know for next time.

My gut instinct was that you had a very good chance of an op up.

The OP was in a cab on the way to the airport and was clearly boarded an hour or so later. Do you think advice about which seat would be much use other than PDQ?
