Inflight Experience / Seating Best Seats for Couples BA F 789, A380?

    Lucky,

    Was wondering what you think the best seats are for couples in BA F on the A380 and 787-9? We've got a leg on each and would like to sit together, but also both like window seats. Can you actually speak to your companion in the middle seats or is an awkward lean around?

    Not the worst problem to have though!!

    Thanks so much!

    They're both reverse herringbone configured and no 2 sets is the best option, i dont think. Center seats might be better even if you have to lean forward a bit? Across the aisles is a second option but the seats are a bit staggered. Either would be better than sitting one behind another though. Also, I think BA F is one of the airlines where you can use the ottoman as a 2nd seat so you can have meals together.

    [​IMG] There is kind of a awkward lean. The seats are the same on both aircraft. You may be able to move the seat forward. You can't sit opposite each other for meals.

    The 787 you can't sit across, A380 you can, see this image from the a380, notice the seatbelt on the ottoman in the image I just uploaded
