I know this has been discussed to death, but I have a flight to MUC on this bird and am choosing between 2AB or 1KL. Its an overnight flight and I would like to sleep, but then again I like the extra footwell space - my wife and I are both around 6ft tall.

Knowing this, what would you recommend (is it better to sacrifice foot space for less light/chatter)?

the light/chatter is solvable with eye masks/earplugs --- go for the foot space.

Trying to decide between row 28 and row 17. Any thoughts on this?

I need some help trying to pick the best E+ seat on the 767-400. We are Going from FCO-EWR. For me any E+ seat that might have a slight edge in leg room is my preference as I am 6' 2". Right now we are in the last row of E+ (28 k,l) and this is the exit row. Thanks!

Row 28 A/L have one downside: the slide protrudes from the exit door in front of you. While it isn't as bad as the 757 (due to being a bit further from the door) this is a large bulge that requires angling somewhat awkwardly. Personally I shy away from these seats, but if you're OK with the tradeoff there's plenty of leg room.

well it would be my wife that would have the window and I always take the aisle. She is much shorter than me so maybe it would not be as big a deal?

Flying IAD->FCO in 4A/B with the wife. Anybody heard anything bad about those seats?

With the exception of bulkheads having larger foot-wells and the general "proximity to the galley" at either end there's nothing exciting (good or bad) about any of the BF seats on this config. If one of you is tall and/or a side sleeper I would suggest double checking for a bulkhead pair because it's the difference between this and this

Thanks for the info!

Another Row 16 Questions...
 
There is a lot of information here regarding Row 16. Let me help continue to beat the dead horse...

Does anyone happen to have a picture of Row 16? I am interested in how much room there is from the front edge of the seat to the wall? I am curious as to whether a person who is 6'1" or 6'2" is going to feel like it's tight even though the pitch is greater than other seats in E+ because of the wall with nowhere to put your feet. Additionally, are the tray tables and PTV's in the armrest and, if so, if the seat width reduced noticeably from other E+ seats?

I'm 5'11" and while I wouldn't call it roomy (for example sliding forward in your seat and extending your legs is probably not possible) but it isn't cramped. As for the seat width I'd say the setup (similar on the 763s and TATL 752s) is definitely noticeable, but no different than the domestic table-in-armrest seats you see in exit/bulkhead rows. Personally I'm not a fan on overnights since it makes various sleeping angles less comfortable.

I only sat in 764 row 16 once, domestically, a few years ago... so my memory is hazy, but I think this was the flight were I was able to prop my backpack against the bulkhead and put my feet on it. Pretty much the most comfortable I've been in E+.

If you recline your seatback fully in Y, can the person behind you see/access their AVOD screen?

Yes. While the don't tilt (like the DTV on 737s) the screens have a very broad viewing angle (and face in a slightly upwards direction in the first place). I (as well as my taller siblings who are >6') have had no problem viewing the screen on a fully reclined seat even when sitting fully upright.

Is seat 1B usually blocked for airport assignment or does it open up at check in?

wto605 May 3, 15 8:42 pm

IIRC 7D is crew rest, so 1B is probably just your standard blocked seat. I would expect it to open up at T-24, but cannot speak from recent experience.
