    My parents are travelling in buisness on the 747 going to HKG. At the moment I booked them in 1A and C, all seats except row 9 and 24 are free. Should I keep the seats I have selected or should I change to another row.
    Myself is in F and I have selected 83C. In case I do end up on an 747 with old F and some on is op-up next to me, the trip is in dec. Or is there any better seat?

    Super excited about my first trip in long haul F even though it's 9 months left.

    Travelling as a couple we like row 1. Travelling alone I try to get that one middle seat in row 5 (5D?)

    The Star Trek Seat?? That seat did look cool.... I think row-1 will be good for a couple.

    Did you check seatguru.com and seatexpert.com? If not, do.

    You won't get anyone next to you - even if ther is an op-up. LH has now only 8 seats in F on their 747's - to adapt to their new F.
    See this thread for more :

    I don't know why people like 4D so much. I was in it once and hated it... People were walking between me and the table/bench or whatever you call it in front of that seat... I also like window seat... And I usually travel with Mrs anyway :)

    The nice point about 4D is that there is no one sitting next to you. Some people are walking by, however there are not that many people in the front cabin anyway. If you are travelling with someone else, row 24 is also quite nice.

    I prefer row 1, hands down. Feels more private, and if you're traveling alone it's easier getting out from the window seat.
    If I can't get that, I at least prefer seats in the first four rows, since the cabin is smaller and more quiet.
    I had 4D once, but i have to agree with vbroucek. Always people walking around me, and I feel somewhat on display.

    Never tried LH F, so no tips there.
