Qsuites for Solo Traveler

As a solo traveler, is it wise to assign yourself the middle seats that form the double bed so you can utilize that/try it out?

Or it’s just not worth the extra space and you should just choose a window in the odd numbered rows?

You can only select middle seats when travelling as a couple or more, they are blocked for single travellers.

For my upcoming Q Suite debut, I did neither! I'm in 10A (777-300er, rear facing, seat by the window) - curious why you think an even numbered window seat isn't even worth considering?

As a solo traveler, I would always just go for the window seat as the privacy is incredible. On 77W, the preference would be 3,5,10 A/K. I wouldn't run the risk of picking the middle seat and then having someone next to me, unless I could be absolutely sure.

1,3,5,8,10 A or K are the inner window seats/rear view ones. I have had 3A and 3Ks and loved them

Are any of these seats missing a window? (I'm thinking of configurations like the 773, which is missing a window toward the back of business class - row 11 on AA's '77W' comes to mind.)

On the 777 200LR 10 A/K is missing the window right next to the seat, so be aware.

6A or K on 773. Just go for 1,3,5,8,10 A or K IMO.. I’ve had 3A and 3K for all my qsuite (darn lucky) neither close to galley nor lavatory.

I’m trying to preorder meals but don’t see the option when I go to manage my booking online. Does it have to be over a computer?

No. You can do it also with the app, but only 14 days before your Business/First-Class Flight.
