I disagree I think 1st is best (most legroom and privacy by the window) and 5th is the worst (right in front of toilet / snack bar.)

I went to the main South lounge and then the satellite lounge (which I'd strongly recommend over the main one as it's much quieter and spacious inside.) I handed them my Gold card and BA boarding...
