So how do QF ensure you get that Empty row? No doubt another passenger who might be next to a beefy individual, would eye out the empty seats and assume they could move into that seat.
They will give you a boarding pass that says so; and the coin crew would explain.

I believe It’s the middle row of 4 and they give you a receipt to say you have the row of 4. However they are not going to move passengers to specially create a row of 4. It is not always offered on QF8 and never heard it offered on QF7

AirNZ would use antimacassars to denote such seating. I'm not sure about QF.

I imagine this is the most practical solution, but can also guarantee there will be passengars who ignore them.

I feel enforcement by the cabin crew is the only feasible solution, and for this they would need to:
a) know which passengers this applies to
b) know which seats this applies to
c) be bothered to actually adhere to a rule/regulation set by QF.


Do you see the weakest link in the above?

Is there some form of plane plan which identifies which armrests go up ?
I have purchased comfort seats in the past and at least once had the issue the arm rest didn't go up

The ground staff print a 2nd batch of boarding passes for those that buy a comfort row and give this to the crew, so they know who has paid and what seats you were given.

The A380 armrests do not stay up by design.
