I'm flying LHR - SYD - LHR next month with British Airways on the way out and Qantas coming back. I have been on seatguru.com and have booked myself seat 70K for the return journey. I couldn't pick one for the outward BA flight as the website told me the designated number of seats available for allocation before check-in had been used up, so I'll just have to wait until 24 hours before the flight and check-in online and hope I can still pick a good one.
I can see my seat on this pic:

The PTV looks annoyingly positioned!
Not sure which to pick on the BA flight though (if I have much of a choice):

I'm aware the cabin has been refurbished since but assume (perhaps wrongly) the seat layout remains pretty much the same.
50K looks like a good seat but the rows of 2 behind that look crap, some appear not to have a window view and look too far from the wall, difficult for sleeping.
Anyone have any suggestions for a particularly good (or bad) seat for either of these flights? I wouldn't normally bother posting but it is LONG flight!
Expect a full trip report!
