    No doubt, this topic has been covered.

    I have flown many times in Club Europe, but this will be my first time in CW. As I have a free choice of seats, which seat would you recommend. At the moment I have 64A. I have only ever flown on the upper deck of an SQ A380.

    I find 62A is best as you don’t have to climb over anyone

    60 J although I am thinking about the one right at the back!

    Will also depend on whether you have a need to control the blinds. Personally, I hate take off and landing with the blinds down and before you mention safety, BA no longer care whether the blinds are up or down on take off.

    In the main window seats in NCW are rear facing, wheras forward facing seats are aisle.

    62 A / K all the way – 64 A / K are good too, although they are bassinet positions and I have been moved before because of a baby…

    I also think 14A & 14K on the hi-J 747s are underrated, as they offer privacy of a window seat, again without having to step over anyone to get out.

    If it’s a long overnight flight I would recommend 60B as 60A likely to be reserved for crew rest.

    Other way round Pamarkc – 60 B is the crew rest seat…on a long overnight flight..

    Yes, it’s a 10-hour+ overnight flight. I am looking for maximum privacy (unless my neighbour is drop-dead gorgeous).

    62 seems to be a good choice.

    I seem to remember reading that they no longer allocate the bassinets on the UD, and when we used 64 A/B/J/K/ earlier this year that was certainly the case.

    Hi Rickers – that’s quite possibly so, as the incident when I was moved was at least a couple of years ago.

    I find CW on the 747 so much better than on the 772 (and even the 773).

    When travelling with my other half in CW on the 747, we always try to get 62J/K. Not sure which is best on the 747 when travelling alone, but have enjoyed 64A when I can get it as it seems to be a very isolated, quiet seat, perfect on night flights.
