Yes, that is my experience with the minicabin. I generally avoid it.

Most important is to avoid row 11, which is almost in the toilet.

I generally go for row 15, but I don't think there's a clear 'winner' seat on the 359.

15's good - avoid row 11 because of the front loo, avoid rear cabin cos of the foot traffic (or it is a business cabin attached to a less premium cabin, not a business cabin attached to a more premium one like the 77H/77A). So sit in the middle of the cabin --> row 15.

Yeah, I do the same (77P/G or 359/350), row 15, 16 (or 17), depending on what is available during booking. Still somewhat in front of the cabin (useful for the earliest meal services) and away from the front/rear galleys.

For the A or F side, just what is your preference (in principle, the A side does have the more experienced crew, though I think, the difference would be marginal).

If you are a side sleeper, you may want to have your back to the isle, to take care your knees can protrude into the gaps for that.
So sleeping on your left side, use A, sleeping on your right side, use the F side.

You mean 77G/77P?
But I take 11 D/G on them too. No front toilets, and I get to use the front shelf to put meal trays etc. However I cannot discreetly recline before departure.

Oops, my bad, still early on the day. I did adjust my posting, thanks.
So, you prefer the first row in J ?

Never thought of that for a side sleeper. Very helpful tips. Thank you
