    to sit near and take care of my son. We are traveling in F. I am wondering which two seats are the best for me to watch him and minimize any potential issues with other passengers. I have read and heard from many folks here and on FT about children in premium...sort of passed that now. (We have a wedding to attend to within a few days of our landing and wanted to be in best shape as possible since he is a ringbearer. Wife and daughter on the SQ direct flight from EWR.) I don't anticipate any as he is very good on the plane. This will be his 4th international long-haul flight, first time in premium except for a short haul in Business. I have the option of 4A/C, 4H/K, 1A/K, 1K/2K. Looking at the maps and watching youtube videos of the flight, seems like it is pretty cozy even in row 4. I currently have 4A/C. This is a 744 config plane.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Seats 1A/K are perfect for what you need. I flew GlobalFirst on this route a couple weeks back, the seats are close enough to keep a good eye on him but not so close you'll want to choke each other 4 hours before landing.

    Agreed. Based on the available seat choices, I would go with 1A and 1K.

    I am jealous of him. I didn't get my first stamp on my passport until I was 26 and didn't fly until I was 20.

    I was going to suggest 66B and C, but that would be just mean! :) Enjoy your trip!
