Question Best " premium " ( Plus ) Seat 767-300 (Bulkhead?)

My wife & I are flying YYZ-LGW and have decided to splurge on premium seats on the 767-300
We would really appreciate some advice on selecting the best seats.
SeatGuru tags Row 1 as yellow with warnings about bulkhead may reduce leg room, seat narrower because of tray table in armrest, proximity of washroom, and no under-seat storage.
We would love to hear some opinions from people who have actually flown in Plus on the 767.
Funny thing is that in pictures and videos I have watched it actually looks like Row 1 has more leg room than 2-4. Am I wrong that rows 2-4 also have tray tables in the armrest? Are row 1 seats really that much narrower than 2-4? (I am a bigger person, so seat width is a consideration)
I tend to like the bulkhead because I usually find it easier to get in and out of my seat, and I like having no one in front to recline. However if there is less room or any other reason that we would be better moving back a row or two, we would take that advice.
Also which is the best pair? A-C, D-F, or H-K? Is there any real difference? I usually like a window, but would sit in the center pair if there was more room.
Thanks for any help!

Seats in all rows have the tray table in the armrest. Only difference I noted was that row 1 has no underseat storage in front. I'm not sure if there is more leg room in row 1, as you can only stretch your legs up to the bulkhead - in other rows you can stretch your legs under the seat in front of you.
Personally I prefer the center pair as both seats can access their own aisle, so no one has to climb over you to get out.

Hey there, I'd definitely recommend row 1, tho I'd say preference on which seat would be up to you, depending how much you like a window.

I sat in 2C going to LGW which was fine enough but the pax in 1C fully reclined which made it feel like I had way less space (it felt like the seats went back really far, but just my opinion). It was actually a bit of a maneuver to get out of my seat without hitting 1C. I slept part of the flight so not a huge deal in the end.

Returning I sat in 1D which I much preferred. No issues with leg room (I'm 5'10") and easy enough to have all my stuff in the bin above.

Hope that's a bit helpful. Enjoy your flight!

Row 1 on the 737s is better than the other Plus rows. Nobody reclining in your mug since they are not proper J pods where reclining is not an issue and so what no room underneath, use the compartments above. You get on first so that part is easy.

I found legroom in the 737 to be plenty. Your feet can barely even reach the bulkhead. Might not be the same on 767 but I bet it is.
