What are the recommendations for the best Apartment for a solo traveler? Saw several recommendations for traveling as a couple but nothing I was able to find if one is by themselves.
thanks

4A or 4K. Row 4 seats are forward facing and the seat is next to the window.

Thanks, though just went to go grab one of those and my flight row 4 is already taken . I have the choice of 1H, 2H, 3A, or 3K between those any that would be considered better?

Row 3 are also window seats but are rear facing. 2H is forward facing aisle. 1H is rear facing aisle and across from residence and closest to the toilets.

If you don't mind rear facing I'd go row 3. 2H is the only one forward facing left if you do mind!

I flew in 4A/2K on my Apt flights. Row 2 seats are almost as good as the Row 4 seats, just less one window.

I prefer the window seats they feel more private.

I am booked for a flight this fall in F from AUH to JFK. The flight leaves after 3am. For those who have taken this flight, what did most people do regarding meals after boarding? Does Etihad do a meal service right away, keeping the lights on, or do most people sleep/watch movies?

Anyone ever bring a little personal fan on board? I've read a few reviews from people saying it's either oftentimes hot in the cabin, or, stuffy since the fans that are in the overhead storage don't exist in first

Well, the one flight my wife and I took was not too warm, but perhaps this can vary.

I have no idea whether EY would permit using a personal fan. But if it does, try to make sure it's pretty quiet as the whir conceivably disturb other passengers (though I suspect most wouldn't even notice).

They do meal service right away. You can order anything anytime from the menu.

The lights are dimmed for the entire flight, I ate then slept a bit and then watched some movies. It looked like everyone was sleeping. Anyone that wasn't was at the bar.

According to a mate who just flew staff have been instructed to reduce the temp in F.
YMMV.

I can confirm, my last F flight mid March (AUH-SYD), cabin temperature was good, it has been too warm in the past. And I am one of the first to grumble about overheating.
