DXB-->SYD A380: 18K vs 23A

Hello everyone,

For those who had the experience flying Business class on Emirates. If you had to choose between 23A (the first row of the second cabin) and 18K which is near the end of the first cabin, which one would you prefer on a long flight?

From my own (inexperienced) point of view, it's lower noise in 18K vs theoretical chance to take pictures of the Harbour Bridge/Opera House when landing in SYD from 23A. Wondering if there are any other points to consider?

Thank you in advance )

If your approach to Sydney is from the right direction you should be sitting on the port side for landing or the starboard side for take off to have views of the Harbour Bridge. So, an A seat for landing or a K seat for take off. 18K for DXBSYD will only give you views of the western suburbs and urban sprawl.

23 A&K have bigger room for your feet-legs, they are my favorites

23A all the way. The smaller mini-cabin feels more private and easier to walk to the bar and loos at the back. I always try to take 23A or K.

I liked it except for the noise from two kids (unlucky) and the speed of service. I was getting my meal as 7,9,11 were finishing...
