WT+ seats on BA 747-400 70-Bus

Hello everyone. I have a question regarding the seating layout for WT+ on BA's 747 299 passenger configuration (Flt 193 LHR-DFW). I have decided to purchase seats in advance and am considering seats 30J & 30K. (The exit row seats are blocked out). Seat guru says these are standard seats but I am hoping to get a little advice about my selection. It looks like the nearest lavatory is behind in WT. Any insight? Thanks so much!

According to the BA seat map, that is correct which means there is no dedicated lavatory for WT+ on this plane.

If you can't get the exit row seats go further back.

It's noisier by the door and the last row, I think three rows back is far quieter.

Yes the toilets are behind in WT but there are three there behind the small WT cabin.

I've not had issues on a full flight.

I'd personally save my $$ and wait until OLCI opens. Paying for seat selection can really add up! BA still has great choice of seats available during OLCI.

Most WT+ seats are of a muchness except those at the bulkhead, which have a bit more leg room. The first row of the cabin may show as booked or unavailable as the seats are held for Gold and Silver EC members; the cot seats will be blocked until 72h before departure should families travelling with infants need to book those seats.

If no cot seats are selected at T-72h and if Gold or Silver pax don't choose the bulkhead seats, all will become available at OLCI. If you and your companion are two who like to recline, consider the last row of the WT+ cabin, which does have full recline.

The washrooms are behind row 36 in the WT cabin on that high J 747.

I decided to go ahead and pre-pay for our seats in WT+ and glad I did. I checked this morning and only the center section seats are showing available. Will check again during OLCI to see if the bulkhead opens up but for now am happy with our window/aisle seats. Thanks again everyone.
