I'm planning to fly out Heathrow - Chicago O'Hare then back SFO - Heathrow in January 09. Last time I flew BA Business class they had the old style seats with the fan style divider between seats which you could put down if you were travelling with someone. I've had a look at the pictures of the new style seats which BA seem to be using on the routes I'm planning on flying and I'm not sure which seats would be the best as I'm travelling with my husband. The seatguru site is suggesting that E & F would be the best seats for us as there is no divider between them. But I'm not sure how difficult it would be to get in an out of these seats. Under the old configuration I'd usually prefer A & B or J & K, but the pictures on BA's site make it look like there's almost a wall between them.
Any advice from anyone who has flown in the updated cabin would be greatly appreciated!
