What are people's thoughts about row 5 on Virgin B777-300ER Business Class? I've booked to travel to Abu Dhabi in December and have been allocated seat 5C. I understand that row 5 on Virgins 777 is quite private as it's on it's own and behind curtains. I'm wondering if it will feel claustrophobic.

Hi Neil, you'll find plenty of photos in our review here, albeit from seat 5H rather than 5C: Review: Virgin Australia Boeing 777 business class: Brisbane-Los Angeles

Great row if you are travelling as a couple or 3 of you. It could get a little to "Close" when they draw the curtin.

Strongly recommended! I did this from LAX-SYD last year. It's very private and secluded, and by far beats the main cabin. Keep an eye out for celebrities in the same row - its not uncommon to spot some familiar faces seated there for privacy's sake.
I have heard a few stories about celebs flying into LAX. I don't think there's as many Hollywood A Listers flying the sector to Abu Dhabi though.
I'm now wondering if they have me confused with the Neil Marshall who's the Director of The Decent and of some episodes of Game of Thrones !!
