1A is closer to the bar. This may appeal to you. The light or noise may bother you, however. But it's academic as the suite enables you to completely shut yourself off. The prestige of seat 1A may also appeal to you

No, I haven't tried it, but based on pictures alone 1A seems like the better option. Go get a seat in a quiet and private spot (1A) before the seat belt sign is turned off, after the seat belt sign is turned off immediately go across the aisle to get a mimosa or something, then shut the doors for minimal noise as you sip your drink. Haven't tried EK A380 first yet though, though I believe so. After all, none of the seats can go wrong in Emirates 1st.

Ignore suggestions for 1A. You only get 2 windows and you are right near the showers and there can be noise. Row 2 is the best F row - the suite is slightly larger with 3 windows. You're still up the front, but far enough away from crew areas up the front and back. 

My preferred F seat is 2A or K.

I have selected 3K for a flight from DBX to LHR on the A380.  Is this ok?

I agree with Ben84...2A is the better option given its set back from the small forward lounge and showers where passengers and staff may stand, esp the spa attendants. Row 2 has more windows as mentioned so seems more spacious. I prefer to sit on the left hand side along the "A" as service is from the right, its also closer to the exit door for boarding.

Honestly it makes no difference. I've flown in 1A, 1K, 2A, 2K on the 388 and they are all the same… differences and noise are academic. Same for the &773 where I've been in 1A,2A, 2K..... No one uses the first bar and nobody queues up for the showers.... When you have your door closed you will have no idea what's going on. Sometimes I prefer to keep it open as it can get a little lonely in there all by yourself
