    Hi Lucky
    I've enjoyed exploring your site over the last few days (sometimes reliving old trips, most of the time getting excited about new trips).

    I'm flying Orly-Newark BA Business class on the 757-200. This plane has forward and rear facing seats. I can't seem to find information on which is the best seat to choose (assuming I will have a choice by the time I do the 24-hour check-in). Seatguru rates them all the same (except for row 8 on the l-h side). I like the aisle because I get up a bit during the flight and it appears that climbing over someone from a window seat may be tricky (I'm very short at only 152cm). Do you have any experience with these planes?

    Thanks again for the great info on this site.

    @ Joann -- I love both forward and rear facing seats. If you suffer from any sort of motion sickness then I'd probably do a forward facing seat, since it is a bit odd to sit backwards during takeoff and landing. But other than that, I think there's not really a difference.
