So this is pure gloating on my part (for which I make 'some' apologies )
At the end of May I'm doing a round the world (of sorts...) trip. LHR-SIN-LAX-LAS-LAX-LHR
My first flight LHR-SIN is on the A380. Unfortunately my budget wouldn't stretch to getting a suite so I'll be stuck in Y. My question for those of you lucky enough to have been on the big bird already is:
Are there any benefits of being on either the upper or lower deck?
I've seen the cabin layout on Seatguru.com and first thought are that the upper deck looks slightly better....

I was lucky enough to have the A380 both ways and have a flight on both decks. Originally I was to return on a 744.
The upper deck of the A380 had these useful side bins if you have a window seat but is otherwise a lot like flying on an A330 or A340. The lower deck is much bigger and wider but feels pretty much the same as a 747. I could be wrong but the amount of space that a Y seat has on the lower deck seemed a bit more on the lower deck than on the upper deck. Don't know why but I liked downstairs better.
