    My wife and I are flying PHL-FRA in FC. Cabin has two rows x-xx-x. A couple of questions....

    Can couples see each other and easily talk using the two middle seats or would we be better off with an aisle-middle combination?

    Any advantage to the aisle seats? My wife likes a window but if the two middle seats work well for couples, I will ask her to share middle seats with me.

    Is row one or row two best? Why?

    Thanks in advance.

    Middle pair is fine and talking across the aisle isn't great IMO. I'd plan on spending most of the flight asleep, not talking, so there's also that.

    Row 1 is closer to the galley but not enough that I noticed issues.

    Thanks.

    Does row two have any extra storage under the seats in front?

    Just learned that the latest First Class facilities are not yet available on LH427. The only pictures I found are of the new First Class Suites. What is the older FC cabin like on LH427 PHL-FRA?

    Saw this comment

    Even the old first class aboard the A340′s, where it’s just like a big, padded armchair that lowers into a bed, is still pretty decent.

    but no picture.

    Old First isn't bad -- the seat is still very comfortable, and turns into a nice bed. The IFE is horrible, but I usually just plug my computer in, and zone out to a couple of movies and then sleep. I do 452 (MUC-LAX) a lot, and it is always old F.
