Flight contact zones - Can we guess it it was?

I'm not sure where this thread fits exactly, possible into just general covid ponderings. I've opted for isolations, as the topic might lead to isolations. But has anyone been following the contact areas as they relate to flights?
I have and I like to guess who the infected person was, and consider the strange parts of the contact locations.

As two examples, a whole back there was a contact zone in rows 1 to 4 of a qantas flight. My guess, someone (a festering platinum 1) in row 4 who used the business toilets (illegally)

There's those two flights to brisbane and to townsville = The whole plane. I say it must have been a crew member! CSM?

Now one to Adelaide QF741 - two zones: Close contact in rows 21 to 25, clearly little or no status... lol, casual contact in all rows except rows 21 to 25. so they didn't go to the toilet then...

Well it amuses me. Any one else making deductions from flight based exposure reports?
 
Aren't most states classifying anyone allocated a seat within two rows of the positive case as a "close contact"?

In the case of the Qantas flight where rows 1-4 are a contact zone, I assume this means the pax in question was in row 2.

I don't think the authorities are taking an approach as nuanced as determining whether someone in row 4 used the forward toilet. Back at the very start of all this, when someone in QF F on an A380 flight was identified as a positive case, I recall a contact tracing alert asking people who were sitting in rows 3-7 on the Qantas A380 to isolate. (Never mind that rows 6-7 don't exist.)

Would be row 2 because I believe they go 2 rows forward and back to consider it a close contact.

hmm... too soon, it seems

will let you all de-traumatise
 
This is now making me toss up between row 4 or moving to row 25 with 2 empty rows ahead/behind to minimise the possibility of being identified as a close contact...
