4/5A or 5E/F [on 747 to JNB]

Hi all,
i would appreciate the views of those with more experience. Mrs U and I are flying our second F to JNB, (First time on the 747).

The cabin is fairly full, with 3 spare seats, 1 being blocked in row 1. Our seat choice is therefore 4A and 5 A,E and F.

As JNB is an overnight, which pair would you recommend, the rear mid pair or 2 A windows?

Thanks,

Take the windows. The middle pairs are rather exposed and not, IME, as conducive to a good nights sleep.

I've done this flight and I'd do 2A windows. The E and F are "very exposed" in the middle with a flimsy little window separating the two seats. We were in 2K and 3K and liked it a lot. I would take 4A and 5A with the windows.
