Iâm going to be travelling business on the Qantas A380 in November, having not done so for about 8 years.
Assuming Iâm not lucky enough the get on a refurbished version, Iâm deciding whether to move from 12A where I am currently placed to 12E which is open.
Iâm travelling alone and not fussed about the view.
Thoughts (including if there other seats I should consider). Cheers
Damn auto correct QF, not WE!!

Avoid the back row in the centre. Can't recall the seat number? There's a fan or somesuch device that cycles on and off behind the bed and is quite distracting if you're trying to sleep.

Depends how tall you are. If you're tall then 12A is fine as you can easily step over your aisle seat companion and you get the window bins - 2 in this case as one of the 3 next to that seat is locked.
Awesome thanks everyone. I’m roughly 6’4” and having the storage is helpful so might stick where I am.

Hi Steve, on this part of the site users can edit their own posts, although on this occasion we've edited it for you.
Thanks Chris - my experience was you can edit the text but not the header.
