I've just flown on 49A on the SYD - SIN sector and I would say that comparing to 49B and 49C next to you it is indeed a bit uncomfortable as both of the seats have much much more legroom and you can expect that the crew won't always sit in the crew seat opposite to you! However for 49A and K the door in front of you indeed block your legroom, however it is not that serious, considering you can still stick your leg to a bit of the right hand side or so. I'll consider 49A or K to be a better seat than other rows, but for better legroom, for for B, C, H and J instead unless you insist a window seat!

Well..it cant b that bad.
The whole idea of this seat is to enable me to get a window and NOT have to squeeze my way past two other people if i wanna go toilet.
Besides there are no bozos in front who will recline their seats into ur face when ur watching the PTV.
Another advantage compared to 49C is that the people behind going to toilet will have a tendency to grab that seat 3 times!
The SIN-LHR sector is always packed FULL i dont tink the crew would sit on the passenger seats..especially the emergency row which is always snapped up. (thanks to telephone check-in i dont need to rush to the airport HOURS in advance..lol)

The only point I would make is that the area you will be putting your feet into tends to be the communal meeting point for people stretching their legs - so you might get annoyed with people standing on your feet all of the time !!

Philg, row 61-64 are in 2-4-2 configuration, not so sure about CX's configuration.
Well it's not really that bad, and you could still stretch your leg out in my opinion, IMO only my left foot was a bit stuck, but I could stretch my right foot easily.
For your information, there are 2 different seatings in Y for the skysuite aircrafts, with row 39 and row 41 as emergency exit seats, while row 49 are emeregency exit seats for both aircrafts. The main difference between the 2 configurations is the location of the toilets.

Yes Row 41 (the row behind doors 4L and R) is my favorite row as you get lots of extra legroom.
IF you sit in the row just behind doors 3L and R, you still get teh same leg-room, but because of the window configuration, you don't actually get a window view.
And the row behind 2L and R is the worst. There is a bulkhead between the exit and the seats so you don't get any extra legroom at all. So definitely go with Row 41.
However, as 9V SPK pointed out, I would also avoid seats A and K because the door-slide takes up much of your legroom.
