BA 777 3-Class - Family Seat Question

    Hi folks,

    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    I've just booked BA CW flights for my family next year (day flight). I've always avoided CW but only option that makes sense on this route (LON - SJO). I have a question about seat layouts in the 777 layout (identified as v1 on Seat Guru, rows 1-5 then rows 10-11).

    We want at least one window seat and we all still want to feel "together" for the flight. What I've currently got booked is 2GJK with that idea that my wife and I will be on G/K and my daughter sat in the middle of the 3 of us on the aisle on J.

    Are all these 3 seats actually "in-line" with each other or is my daughetr in 2J going to be staggered away from 2G? What I'm hoping for is that my daughter in 2G can easily converse with whoever is in both 2J and 2K (unless she pulls the divider up on me...).

    The cabin (apart from 1A) is completely empty at the moment so happy for any other recommendations. Wanted to distance us from basinet, toilets and galleys which doesn't leave many options. Did consider doing centre seats and an aisle but considering we want to flank my daughter one on each side I'm not sure that's any better than what we have. Any other suggestions also welcome.

    Hi @guytp, and welcome!

    The rows are offset. If you look at the seatmap, you'll see row 1 doesn't have any window seats, so the window seats "start" at row 2.

    That means all the center seats in the front cabin are basically half a row behind the window seats. 2G would be significantly behind 2J -- she wouldn't be able to talk to you without turning about 120 degrees.

    This is less of an issue in the mini-cabin, so 10GJK might be a better choice, given that the rows line up a bit differently there.
