    Flying to sin on the a380 with ba in business class as a couple

    I’m gold (but at time of travel won’t be so gonna book early ) so don’t have to pay for seating

    Are there any seats of 2 together in the middle which you don’t have to climb over anyone when getting out … rather not book window and aisle as the aisle isn’t really private

    Help appreciated

    Upstairs, 53 AB or JK. The window seat is a fabulous space, like a private cubicle, possibly the best business class seat I’ve been in (which was good as we were 4 hours delayed departing for DXB in December). The bathrooms are huge!

    Have a look on aerolopa to see the cabin layout. It’s very small, so feels private even if you’re in an aisle seat.

    Which is unfortunately a bassinet seat so I don’t believe you’ll be able to take it until 24 hours before the flight.

    So the answer is kind of not really. And as I suspect you know the window seats that don’t have to clamber over anyone have the worst aisle seats next to them as they are by the curtain and have the most noise and also for reasons I cannot understand invariably have cabin crew banging into them on a regular basis.

    If mobility is an issue you are probably stuck with them if you want a pair.

    Thanks for the info , it’s a shame there are only 1 pair of seats together which don’t have anyone climbing over you , main deck or upper

    The problem with bassinet seats is that appear blocked up till OLCI opens, and then suddenly when check in opens, they have been booked. They are very rarely occupied by a family with an infant, but strangely seem to be occupied by passengers who are very friendly with the crew.

    Bassinet seats are normally released around T-72, for those who know how to grab them.

    Either way anything to do with check in, online or at the airport, has nothing to do with the crew!

    Thanks for help

    So 15EF are not showing in the seat map (there not blocked or anything just no seats showing)

    The other mentioned seats are occupied

    Any other ones which you don’t have to climb over anyone

    It’s 14E&F that are the centre bassinet pair but as mentioned the bassinet will be shown as blocked until close to take off. You could gamble and take the one next to it with the aisle seat and look to move but I would never play Russian roulette with a baby.

    So you have the window pairs of 59AB and 59JK on the upper deck (but basinet seats for WT+ are directly behind you) and the (much less desirable) 15AB on the lower deck near the toilets – you could actually pee in there from your seat if you have good aim.

    Here is the master thread on flyertalk:

    I’m definitely taking that. LMFAO. I mean, they’d shoot you for a rice cake!
