From memory I preferred upper deck as it is 2-3-2 and has good size window bins. The front upper WC is huge and much easier for changing. Some may say you disembark quicker from the lower deck but for a long flight I prefer the in flight benefits.

Its been a few years since I flew the 380 so someone can correct me if I am wrong.

Hi,


No, you are correct

The 2 upper deck front toilets are large.

I just flew the 787-9 CW to DXB and back and did miss the additional storage space provided by the A380 CW side bins

53 A/K and 59 A/K are the direct aisle window seats. Having done both would say I prefer 53 K.

On an ORD flight in 2018 I was first off the UD and first to passport control from 53 K.

Toilets are an excellent size as has been mentioned.

If we're talking bathroom size, the forward right biz bathroom (behind 4J) on the AA777W is also quite large and good for changing if you have mobility issues.
