    I agree, but above all take any seats 15 or lower. The seats far back have accress to the old Y sized lavatories, not bad, but not as nice as the ones in front. With 20+ hours on board, that does make a difference.

    If you want a window and want relative quiet those seats are the ones. Before and after them there is more lavatory and galley noise than there, in the mid-most seats in the Front section. BTW, I prefer the center seats rather than the window but I agree with NYCAdventurer about the rows. That said, there really are no poor seats on this aircraft. After all this is a A340-500 with only 100 seats. I personally prefer this to the suites for the nonstop NYC-SIN feature, and it is very comfortable. BTW, there is no amenity kit, but there are also quite a lot of goodies in the lavatories so I recommend going there as soon as possible in order to get whatever you want. Don't forget to open the drawers to find the goodies. That is one of the reasons to be in the front with the larger lavatories.
