BA Club World is a world class product. It has revolutionised the industry, which is why everyone is scrambling to intriduce copycat versions. BA
is still the best product, though: a fully-flat bed (not angled) which only the fewest competitors have.
By all means use the online check-in - it will get you a better seat.
I agree with KZBA
- I always go for 12D or G or 17 D or G on the 744 as it is the front row and you have extra space behind the neighbour's seat to put your bag etc.
Carduelis - what on earth do you mean about lack of access from window seats? It is vastly better in CW
Flat Beds than with the Cradle Seats: When the cradle seat was reclined and the person in front also had their seat reclined, it was at least as difficult if not more so to exit from the window as before.
In terms of comfort, I would much prefer a bed to a chair for sleeping in....
