business Class Seat on a380 vs 777

I have been searching youtube and info on the web, but really thikn yiou guys will be the most helpful. I have added pictures at the bottom

There are 4 of us traveling business class on miles (YIPPPEEE) from Athens back to Dallas.
We had a 10:10 flight and they changed to 8:10am.
I have an opportunity to change the flight back to 10:10 on a different plane.

Current flight - on A380 - seems COOL...double decker. BUT costs over $100.00 each person just to pick our seats ahead of time. Seems so expensive.
A few questions:
1) If we don't pick seats and wait until 24 hours before - how likely are we to get seats together?

2) I am confused on which seats to even pick. For example we are two couples traveling..which seats allow you to talk etc. Is it the two ont eh side like row 13 and 14 A, B, that those two facing each other you can talk etc. OR the two in the middle like EF ?

3) SHould we stay on the main level or upper deck?

Switch to AA on 777 aircraft (attached picture)
- shouldn't have to pay to pick seats on this flight so save money
1) will two people be able to talk / visit etc. and in which seats example D and G.

Here is my struggle - stay with current flight or switch!

Current flight on A380

Look on the AA & BA forums. Both have seating threads
e.g. AA 77W / 777-300ER / 773 Business & First Class / F & J seat (master thread)

What are the routes?
Guessing BA is ATH-LHR-DFW, If you have mid-top OW status seat selection is nil cost. ATH-LHR will not be a wide body aircraft.
AA route?
