I'm 6'1" and can't remember (or find good photos) of what the exit door bulge on the 332 looks like for seat 34, concerns on seat 14 is that it's a middle and not sure how close the bulkhead wall is to the seat.
I'd go for 34A for sure. I've seen pa video showing plenty of space and of course I can't find it at the moment. When I walked thru the cabin on my trips, the door bulge wasn't as bad as it might seem. If I couldn't get the mini cabin or a window at Row 14, I'd go for 34 personally. If I can find a pic or that video I will post it for you.

Edit: Found one pic on yelp showing the lack of "bulge" at the 34A Door. I'm a man on a mission looking for that video I saw-because it legit made me thing "well if I can't get up front, I'll take 34AB/HJ."

I enjoyed 34A, while there is no floor storage the TON of legroom more than compensates and there is no exit door bulge. Seat Guru has a couple photos, see for yourself!

Just be aware that sitting by the door is usually much colder than anywhere else in the plane. My wife hates it, but I don't care for it only cause its far back so you get fed/drinks and get off the plane after everyone else.

HOWEVER, as previously stated if it was the only option for comfort I'd take it

FC Seat Suggestions for SFO-HNL

Flying HA for the first time and booked first class on the A330-200 from SFO to HNL. Any suggestions for seats to grab or avoid? Most of the cabin is empty. Thanks!

only 3 rows done really doesn't matter I guess, typically prefer to have storage under seat in front of me

Row 2 Center Aisle would be my choice.

Anyone know what rows are part of which boarding zones for the general boarding zones 3,4,5? Apparently, HA boards back to front, and the zones are split into 3rds. I'm especially curious what the first row is for zone 3.

Random question, as my curiosity has got the best of me and I can't find the answer, but does anybody have more info on aircraft N380HA? I saw it flying into PHX last week (HA708) at a time the HA does not have a scheduled arrival there. It was coming from Oakland and return there the next night. Just seemed odd since HA only flies once daily from PHX

HAL does Raiders and Seahawks charters. What you saw must have been a Raiders charter.

Helpful tip, thank you. Would you please elaborate on why? I'm going with my wife, so I'm leaning towards an aisle pair as my wife prefers a window.
