Hope this is in the correct forum - if not, please accept my apologies and delete. Next week I will be flying on a LH 744 EWR-FRA, Business Class. My assigned seat is 27K, which is a window seat in the last row of business class. My preference (without having ever flown LH before), would be to have a seat in the nose of the plane, row one or row two. In the opinion of LH frequent flyers, is the view from up front significantly better than my over-wing location? All of the window seats forward are booked, but I'm willing to whine to a gate agent if it is worth it. Thank you for your responses - I'm looking forward to the flight, as this is my first 747 flight of any type - as a CO frequent flyer all of my long flights have been either 752, 764 or 772.
Anyway, it will be dark for some time during the flight and once the sun is up, it will shine into your window. You would be better off with a "A-seat" with its windows facing away from the sun.
Personally I would prefer any seat (preferrably an aisle seat) that is clear of lavatories and galleys.
I once flew in 03H FRA to LAX and, IIRC, the rush of outside air along the fuselage in the front of the cabin was more notable (due to the curvature of the fuselage) compared to the cylindrical section of the fuselage.
