I've got an LA to Hong Kong flight coming up and I've never flown for that long before. Flying on boeing 777-300ER. Btw I'm not asking about window vs aisle, I definitely want an aisle seat. However it appears 71A is both window and aisle. This is the basis for my inquiry, to confirm that the window addition only adds benefit to the situation and does not take away from the aisle characteristics.
I'm looking for an aisle seat so 1) I can stretch my legs out 2) get to the bathroom and 3) walk around if I need to 4) minimize exposure to loud noise (engines/machines) or bad smell. Right now I have seat 69G, it's in the aisle and could possibly be bumped into by people walking by. But it works for all criteria I mentioned.
Having a window view would be an added bonus, would seat 71A have any extra exposure to loud noise or bad smell? It is closer to a bathroom, do bathrooms smell on long haul flights?
SeatGuru says "seats in close proximity to a bathroom can be bothersome," what are the common bothersome issues people express due to sitting by a bathroom?
It almost seems like I'd be able to get the same benefits I want from an aisle seat but also the view?
Would sound be louder in this window seat?
