    I'm looking at trying to snare a seat down the back of a Qantas 747-400 for a LHR-SYD flight later this year, in particular a seat in the "pairs" of seats down where the fuselage tapers in.

    Does anyone know if there is any limit on the overhead storage locker space down there? I'm aware that the overheads in some locations get set aside for crew-related items (first aid, bedding, etc) and wondered if this was the case here.

    Normally such lockers usage is at the very from or back of the cabins.

    The best advice I have is to be at the gate and board as early as you can. This should give you a better choice of the available space than a PAX who boards later.

    There is limited overhead locker space down the back - the last two rows of 4 in economy have no overhead locker as this is where the overhead crew rest area is. Therefore passengers seated there will look for space to put thier bags which tends to be the lockers over the pair seats. So if you want to have your baggage directly above you get on first - otherwise you'll just have to put it where you can find space too, since unfortunately the locker space isn't reserved for you just because you are sitting under it.
