    We prefer 77A for the following reasons:
    • Great legroom
    • Side storage bin makes getting to personal items handy, plus the top makes a nice additional side table
    • Overhead bins although small, are directly overhead, whereas 1A does not have bins – the bins start around row two
    Seat 1A, however, does have some positives, and 77A has a few drawbacks as well:
    • There is basically no traffic at seat 1A – very private
    • 77A is opposite the flight attendant jump seats (although I suppose this could be viewed as a positive if you like to get to know the FA during the take-off and taxi)
    • The pre-flight beverage cart is often parked in front of 77A
    • Seat 1A offers an interesting semi-forward view, although if you wear glasses like I do, you might not be able to really see ahead as the glasses might prevent you from getting your face close to the window
    • Most of the time, passengers from the nose will be off the plane before the upper deck, so less chance of a line at Immigrations
    We always suggest to our users that if they have a chance to sit in the nose or on the upper deck of a 747, do so because 747s are getting fewer and fewer. You are very fortunate that you have a choice. Overall, we recommend seat 77A, mainly for the convenience of the side storage bin.
