Best seat in Kingfisher First (Int'l)

Hi - I've got a flight booked with Kingfisher late May from LHR to BOM. I've been allocated Seat 3A, but from what I've read the window seat isn't desirable if the person sitting next to you turns it into a bed. Do anyone have any recommendations on better seats in Kingfisher First?

Center seats are best in IT 330's. The window is impossible to get in and out of if the person next you goes into bed mode. The Aisle next to the window is a pain if the person in the window is trying to jump over you while sleeping. Center aisles have no one crossing for access and a decent privacy screen which you can raise after take off.

Thanks avm2806.

So really should I be looking at Row 1 or 2, seats D or G? Are these affected by the bar area?

1 d/g are best - 2/d/g are in front of the bar seperated by a galley so not so bad.

Row 4 would actually be a good option too.

They use a pretty thick curtain with some kind of acoustic fill so the bar sound isn't actually that bad.

The bar couch is great to hang out for a bit too.
