I'm planning on flying QF when I go to a conference in the UK in early May. Plan so far is:
- QF BNE-MEL
- QF9 MEL-LHR via SIN; then on the way back on
- QF10 LHR-MEL via SIN
- QF MEL-BNE
As a WP, that ought to net a nice cache of points.
As it turns out, on my flights on the way back, a colleague will be on the same flights as I plan to be. He is a NB and we won't be on the same booking, but I'm planning to call QF Premium and hopefully try and allocate two seats together in Y.
Now we all know very well that the best seats in the A380 Y cabin are obviously the exit rows (although chargeable); 80A, 80K and 71D (no seat in front). Very useful to know the latter three when travelling alone, but what are the best pair of adjacent seats in Y?
I was thinking of selecting seats in the bulkheads, although a couple of considerations:
- These are bassinet positions, so there will be natural competition for these with other passengers.
- Bulkhead may be a severe limit to legroom, especially if they are solid all the way down. Plus, the different recline of the new Y seats may assist or inhibit with comfort in the bulkhead seats.
- No power sockets in bulkhead seats - not sure about this one, but I thought that these were located on the "joins" between seats at the back of seats.
I guess the other considerations are 80A/B, 80J/K, 71D/E, 71D/70E.
Anyone who has travelled as a pair in A380 Y care to comment? Cheers....
