Best economy seats Emirates

Best economy seats Emirates

I've got the following flights booked:

Manchester - Dubai (EK020)

Dubai - Bangkok (EK374)

Bangkok - Dubai (EK373)

Dubai - Manchester (EK021)

All of these flights are on Boeing 777-300(ER) aircraft with slight variations in configuration throughout.

I've had a look on seat guru and have chosen seats 47A and 47B throughout. I believe row 46 does have extra leg room but a negative is that the seat divider is fixed and is unmoveable (which is definitely not an option as I had to move this out of the way on the last long haul flight I was on because it was too restricting!)

My husband has raised his concerns that the seats might be too near the toilets though. Has anyone had previous experience of seating in row 47 on the 777-300er aircraft and whether this is actually a problem, i.e. with smell, queues, general disturbance etc? As there are only the 2 of us I'd prefer a row of 2, but I don't want it to be a negative experience!

Your thoughts are welcome,

Hi Gemma,

When travelling Y we always book 47A/B and never once had a problem with queues for the restroom.

These seats are popular and get booked up pretty quickly.

...but even if you dont get these seats, the seats are better on the 777 than the 380 which are so uncomfatable and hard, but at the end of the day are any economy seats 'best?'

Agree totally Scotlandscout.

If travelling economy I much prefer the 777 to the A380, but I much rather prefer J seats on both these aircraft :)
