My girlfriend and I are flying Club World PHX>LHR tomorrow. I have 60 J/K reserved. These are the first rows upstairs. What should I try to change them to upstairs if possible or is row 60 plenty good? Thanks!

We are definately looking forward to it... I have been hoarding miles on BA for quite sometime and have begun using it. It's a good deal. Paid $1000 for each roundtrip WTP ticket then used 25k for each ticket to upgrade to Club World...
So do we get a traveler pack in Club World with goodies (shaver, toothbrush, etc.)?

You'll get a molton brown mini pack with a few goodies. Don't forget upstairs has a very large wardrobe so don't struggle with carry-ons to the overheads, dump them when you get to the top of the stairs.
One interesting oddity of the upper deck is the wind noise, which you will notice increase at a steady rate until cruise is achieved.

There's one thing I'd try to do - row 62 A/B or J/K are slightly better seats, mainly due to all the legroom you have if you're trying to get out of your seat. However these seats are often booked well in advance. It's worth asking at checkin tomorrow though on the offchance that they're available, have flown in both 60 and 62 and I'd definitely recommend row 62.

Hello, am flying in BA Club World to EZE on 11th Dec, and have prebooked 60 and 61 J and K, was just wondering, is there a toilet at the front of the upper deck cabin? It shows on the seat guru maps but not on the BA ones, is it only for flight crew use, and therefore wont be bothersome?

the lavs are in the back if I remember correctly. Any seat on the BA upper deck are sweet! especially on night flights, with the indigo blue lights and the backwards facing seats, feels like a private jet up there.

There is a lav at both ends of the upper deck and they are both for passengers. The entrance is at the footstool end of 60J. Avoid 60B because you will get the light from the loo on you whenever someone goes during the night.
Are there four of you travelling? If so the following may be tough, although I used to fly upstairs in CW with my brother and parents and had no issues....read on:
Get onto OLCI early and bag yourself row 62A/K (these won't be available at assignment stage because they are exitrows). These are very good seats; rearward facing with the bins at teh side but they don't have the usual 'climbing over the aisle seat' issues as they are exit rows.
If you want more info drop me an email fbgd @ yahoo.com and I can give you my AIM / MSN Messenger contact so I can give you some more info.

There are two toilets on the upper deck of a BA 747-400, one at the front of the cabin (next to the flight deck door), one at the rear (adjacent to the staircase), and both are for the use of passengers.
60J is one of the most popular seats on the upper deck and is rarely empty.
60A and 60B are not always available on ultra-long range flights, as they are blocked off for crew rest
As has been said, row 62 is very popular, and seats 62A and 62K tend to be requested early by those passengers who are travelling alone.
For a couple, if you can't get 62A/B or 62J/K, I would go for 60J/K.

Just flew BA LHR-NRT last week in 60K. Its a very good seat, quiet but on occasion you can hear the toilet flush, but that is hardly a disturbance. I always try and fly on the Upper Deck, its smaller, the window seats have storage bins on the sides, and crew is always around if you need them.
