I am currently booked to sit in seat 5A on the qantas Dreamliner from LAX to MEL in December. With David’s recent review and the fact there is a missing window, am I better to give up the additional privacy and go to row 6 (all other more private J seats are already full) or stay at row 5 with extra privacy and hope another seat opens up? I have checked expert flyer and it looks like 1K is blocked at the moment and have set up an alert for rows 1,3,7 in case anything else opens up. Thanks in advance all!

Long flight with not much to look at..... Wonder if the lack of window is an 'ac' duct (which might be noisy). Otherwise I'd just lean forward when you want to look out the window....

I have flown in a seat with no window from SIN to FRA. Can't say I like it. Especially when it was the exit row (bulkhead) where I can't see rows further up and their windows. It kinda feels a little claustrophobic. During the flight I was imagining this could be how a flight to Mars might be.

You still have a window towards the seat in front.
