Flying a KL 777-200 Business, not sure what to pick: 1H or 5D/G (middle). Alternatively, there's 2H and K and row 6 is also free.

Choices...

Rows 1 and 6 have larger footwells on the 772. Personally, I would take 2K because I like sitting near the front of the cabin and I don't like sitting in the aisle. However, Row 6 feels like a more intimate cabin because it's one row.

I heard the FAs walk past row 6 a lot due to serving economy passengers.

Also it's near the bassinet seats so potentially you can be surrounded by infants.

There is a lot of foot traffic, yes. You will have to figure out for yourself if the bigger footwell is worth it. 6AC has the lav in front of them as well.

Same goes for Row 1 imho, since the C galley is right in front of it. Even with the curtain closed the light can be bothersome, as well as the noise.

Looking for advice on WBC seats on a 787-10 (SFO-AMS). Really two questions: any seats to avoid and do the the bulkhead seats have bigger footwells?

Galley/restroom light/noise doesn't usually bother me but I have large feet and on some seats the footwells are too small for me (looking at you DL 767)

I few on a 787-9 back in the Before Times but I have lost all memory of those times

The footwells are slightly larger in the bulkhead but it's almost identical from my experience. Probably want to avoid 5A or 5K since they're missing windows.

1A is usually my go-to seat in a dreamliner. But a quarter of the time in my experience, it just takes one person to start hover in the little "walkway" from where I'm sitting to get to the aisle and everyone starts to abuse it as a waiting area for the bathroom the rest of the flight. I ranted somewhere on a thread about how this one time a larger woman literally pushed her bottom to my face and had the audacity to call me a pervert when she was the one who decided to take up my space as a place to wait for the bathroom. Otherwise, 1A is a great seat .

Thanks, it was open so I'll give it try. Hopefully your lady "friend" won't be on my flight
