Agreed it's a great seat. I have also been able to select 6A as a non-status pax. I think only 4A, 8A and 10A were blocked, not all the A seats. Maybe cause it's a bulkhead?

After 4 years as a Gold, I won't renew anymore. I moved from Asia to South America, so obviously not much EK flying. My Gold expires in January.

Blocking a seat next to Gold and upwards is standard procedure, if available.

Last time I was in F there were three families with kids! And on some routes you see kids in J every flight. Obviously enough people can afford it.

Yes, EK has online check-in and you can print your BP. Opens 24h before a flight.

All their flights are international. Do they have even a single domestic route anywhere?
