    I was unable to find a thread regarding the best seat on the 752 w/ flat-bed seats. I will be taking a red-eye flight on this aircraft if it makes a difference.

    Bulkheads have a tad more room in the foot well, otherwise they're pretty much identical.

    This concept of all seats being essentially the same is foreign to me. I'm used to many variables, like on the Business Class setas on 747-400s.

    Yup - I made the mistake of picking a seat upstairs on my first 744 flight (I'm 6'6").

    I've also heard that the bulkhead is best due to the size of the foot cut-out (can certainly vouch for this being the case on the pmCO 772s, but haven't flown a flatbed 752 yet)

    Definitely like the bulkhead seats. In addition to the extra cutout, the ledge above the tv is a great place to set stuff down on as you're getting settled in.

    I prefer 2A on these BF Configured 757s. It's very ample and spacious in my opinion and its in the middle of the BF cabin so service wise you shouldn't be waiting too long for meals or eat cetera.

    Is there a reason you would choose it over the bulkhead which has even more space?? And closer to the front so even less wait for meals?

    I suspect it has to do with my height as I'm 5'6 so that seat is perfect while in 1A I don't really feel comfortable and the FAs are always opening the overhead bins over row 1 too.

    It's a personal preference and I should have mentioned that earlier.

    I like the bulkhead windows. I think they have an additional window. It always seems like I have acres of space. They also seem seem a bit more private than others.

    Good deal - I'll be sitting in 1A in a few months :)

    Bulkhead windows are my preference...extra space for your feet and with the ability of having the armrest go down next to the window you have even more room to stretch out...

    I flew in 1F and 2F not too long ago, and 1F seemed to have a lot more room for one's feet. 2F was still quite comfortable, but I'm pretty short (5-5) and was still able to touch the sides of the footwell as it tapered inward.
