Hi there !
I don´t know if this is the right forum to ask, but me and my lady are going to Oshkosh with Air Atlanta´s 747 and I where wondering what´s the best seat in the "house" (beside the cockpit) ??
Because I have the chance to choose it I would like to get a few pointers on that. Thanks in advance

Well, anything labeled "First Class" should be rather amazing. I'd say my choices would be:

1. First Class - window
2. First Class - anywhere
3. Upper Deck business - window
4. Upper Deck business - anywhere
5. main cabin business - window
6. Coach - bulkhead or emergency exit row
7. row 57 - where the cabin narrows (more legroom)

Basically, anywhere on a 747 is quite a treat!

My posts/replies are strictly my opinion and not that of any company, organization, or Southwest Airlines.

Forget the jumpseats, the left hand control seat is the best place to be!!

well I cant argue with CX flyboy. I found the jumpseat to be rather amazing. But my favourite seats I have found so far are upper deck exit row. and anywhere in first class!!

Left seat of the cockpit. Certainly without a doubt. Smile

Englandair !

You should go, the Air Atlanta flight starts in GB to Iceland and from there to Wisconsin, the price is 499 pounds without a hotel room but you really should just camp, we had to pay $80 each for access to the show the whole week and we get to camp on the EAA camping side.
