on the A380, avoid row 67, 82, 41, 51.

the best seats are 68A , 68K

if you go on seat guru it should give you detailed information.

Seatguru is great but it dosent mention seats without windows .Whats good about 68A and 68K?
Ive selected 16A GLA to DXB on the 773 .

they have a window, and they are behind the exit row, which is row 67. there is no seat 67A, only 67B and 67C, so there you go no seat infront of you.

Ok i see , im seat 46 a on the A380 . Ive changed my seat to 19A on the 773 from GLA . That seems to be in the forward Y cabin . Better have a window .

row 46 has a window, however, i would advise you to take a window seat in the second economy cabin between rows 52 and 65. the reason is, that forward cabin in the A380 is noisy, and the over heads get smaller, so if for any reason you can't board on time, you will be struggling in finding a space for your luggage, which might have to be offloaded into the cargo. none of those rows is windowless... all of them have windows. 52 - 65 is a good cabin, away of the noise of the forward stair, the galey and they noise of the bathrooms.

What I usually do is look at Seat Guru and then look at one of the pictures in the database of the aircraft and try and guesstimate where there are no windows or blocked windows. For example, if after door L2 there is a large space before the windows start but no galley, I might avoid a seat in the first or second row of that particular cabin.
Not fool proof but generally works.

Also if you are flying from Glasgow I think you would be on the 77W ( 777-300ER) not the 773. May be someone else can confirm.

Enjoy your flight-- where are you going to onwards from DXB?

That would be my suggestion too.

Are you flying on a three-class or two-class plane?

Have a look at the photo, then the seat map on both Seat Guru and Seat Expert, and try to make a best guess. What I do know is that exit rows on 777s don't have windows, so if you want a view, stay away from exit rows.

You can always ask at check-in if there are any seats available where the neighboring seat is currently not taken.
The 77Ws are nice despite the much-maligned 3-4-3 configuration in Y. The legroom is very decent and they all have ICE.
