    Which are the best seats on the emirates a380?

    Hi,we are flying J class in July and am looking at the seat map on EK website and window seats(A side) from 7 til 16 are unavailable/blocked and on windows seats(K side) are from 7 til 14 unavailable/blocked.
    As my husband is SG,I rang Emirates and they told me these seats were blocked for unaccompanied minors.They told me to look closer to the departure gate or at the airport.
    We booked this flight on the Qantas website and are going to Europe.
    Is this correct?

    Thanks in advance

    There are SOOOO many J seats on EK that they're all basically the same. The best seats are in F

    Re: Which are the best seats on the emirates a380?

    Depends a bit on whether you are flying solo or with a partner, in your case sounds like you are traveling together. As a solo, seats A or K are true window seats while B & J have a small side table between you and the window. As a couple who want to travel, talk and be together then E & F are the pick as you are sitting together but also have a divider between which you can operate. If you want to sit together but not be real close then D & G is the pick.

    IMHO 9K is my favourite and my +1 takes 11K as we both like the windows, and after 35 years we can tolerate being apart for the trip. 6 D & G are the basinette seats so I don't take row 7 in case of noise. On EK food service starts at the front of the cabin so these seats are one of the first to be served and the galleys are at the very rear. The galley in front of you is for the F cabin and not much noise will reach you from there. Towards the rear you have all the J class toilets and the bars so there is a fair bit of foot traffic walking past which can be a little annoying.

    I have taken 25A and 25K on the 380 and loved them.
    Away from the wings, and close to the bar.
    You don't say what plane you will be using.
    Edit: ah, pair, 25 and 26A or K.
    One behind the other, who ever likes the view can take 25, who ever does not mind take 26.
    Also closer to the back loo.

    Re: Which are the best seats on the emirates a380?

    We are travelling as a couple and we are travelling on the 3 class A380.

    We were hoping to get seats towards the front and have booked 14/16k as we both want to get windows and extra leg room.

    We were hoping to get 7/9a but these are blocked at this stage.

    Just wondering whether their gold frequent flyers get access before QF gold.

    I think that 14 and 16 are over the wing!
    ((Edit: 14 and 16 are just about a bit after where the wing ends, but the engine will block view.
    Granted the onboard cameras are a treat worth it though.))
    Take a look at Seatguru website.
    Forget about front of plane.
    Upper deck, the plane starts with F and then J.
    Take it from a backseat/armchair (no quals pilot wannabee), if you love window views, 23/25 are best, away from wing noise too. 24/26 have the space from seat to window where the person behind has their leg stretcher.
