    Looking at SeatGuru and SeatExpert, one ranks all J seats as equal, and the other puts the front row in yellow...ranking the balance as equal.

    I'm going to be on one of these birds next week...anyone have a recommendation?

    I presume the single seats on the windows are idea for most privacy...but beyond that, anything particular to consider?

    First time for me on this equipment.

    Thanks.

    Pretty much all the same, I tend to sit towards the front of the cabin so I get my drink earlier! Although I will say that they have been doing a good job of serving the DM folks first on the BOS-LHR turns.

    I sat in 1a from MIA-lhr couple weeks back. Only drawback to row 1 is light from the galley overnight. Crew were nice about keeping a lid on it once I asked (cf a UA senior route...).

    If you are right handed and plan to do work, consider the seats where the console is on your right. Good place for a mouse/beverage.

    If you pick one of the single seats by the windows and pick an odd number, the seat is to the inside and the "console" is out toward the isle. Choosing this seat will eliminate the worry of anyone bumping you while you sleep.

    1A should be pretty absent of the light but the carts do roll down the aisle starting there. If you are light sleeper pick an odd numbered window as you have more 'protection' from the aisle.

    Go for a window (no seat mate), but I'd suggest mid-cabin if you're looking for the quiter ride.

    1D felt extremely private. Didn't really notice a ton of noise from the galley, but the way the seat was situated a couple of feet ahead of 1B&C really made it feel like I was the only person on the plane. I couldn't see any other passengers unless I turned around. I assume 1A would be similar.

    You are correct. Were you on an overnight flight or a day flight?

    It was on the way home, so it must have been a day flight, but with all the window shades drawn, it was hard to tell!

    You've missed the breakfast service setup then.

    I always go for 1A; if it's not available, then 1D (1A is preferable to 1D because the bulk of the galley is on the right side, so the clanking is more evident, etc.). Definitely first row because your legs go into a cutout (in the bulkhead) instead of the console of the seat in front; the former definitely is wider/larger so your legs/feet have more wiggle room....
