This was our first trip on the A380 and was expecting something really special. We were disappointed. The aircraft is very much quieter than other aircraft, but the club world seating is the same as before. This means that people have to climb over others when they need to get out. This is particularly annoying when it's a night flight and people are sleeping. This is because you cram too many seats across the plane. other airlines, ie Qantas have a totally different configuration, but less seats.

Relatively standard BA Club World seat. Usual problems about lack of cubby holes in seat, but space next to seat near wall. Good nights sleep.

Toilet just behind cockpit on upper deck are huge. Really nice for changing clothes etc.

Staircase down to F is never used - apparently makes too much noise for F customers.

Super quiet aircraft, especially up here!

Thanks to another reviewer I was able to get this wonderful seat! Upper deck does have two toilets, not just the one on seat map. And what a wonder it is! Finally a decent sized restroom with space to change clothes if you want- really roomy. The E seat is very private once the screens between are raised. Very comfy flat bed. As others have noted, the food is unremarkable but the wine choices were quite good. Service was exceptional.

FromSan Francisco, CA - San Francisco International (SFO)
ToLondon - London Heathrow (LHR)
Premium Economy for an overnight flight departing 20.35 local time. Good legroom and additional locker and shelf between seat and window is helpful. Good entertainment screen and excellent headphones. Food service good, staff excellent but limited choice. marginal improvement on Economy. Challenge is finding comfortable position to sleep. Ok if you manage to sleep in a reclined position but your legs will always be unsupported. Also seat depth is limited so little chance of tucking them up on your seat.

FromRichmond - Vancouver Intl (YVR)
ToLondon - London Heathrow (LHR)
50J is on the aisle and very close to curtain by toilet. As it is narrow to pass here many people use the top of the seat as a handrail as they pass by ,consequently rocking the chair. The curtain opening is tricky to find and passengers grapple around next to the seat trying to find it. Then they leave the curtain open causing draught and noise to be a problem

Seat Maestro was helpful in my selection of D25, some extra cost but unlimited leg room, it made a very good difference on this flight.The Airbus 380 aircraft is quiet, well laid out and a (relative) pleasure to fly in, compared with Boeing models. The BA food was basic, but it's only a 10-11 hour flight, absurd to spend hundreds of dollars more for better food. The bathrooms were fine and kept clean.

1A 1K are probably the best seats on the A380, both First suites. Proximity to toilet and galley was not a problem as food is prepared in the galley at the back of the cabin. Problem is a door next door which made a lot of noise on take off and when there was turbulence. The aircraft is more noisy that one assume. I did not find it that quiet as some people claim.

ToSingapore - Changi (SIN)
This is an aisle seat without a seat in front so lots of leg room for my husband's long legs. I sat in 24E and found it quite easy to get up and down to go to the toilet without disturbing him too much.
There were 3 of us travelling so our friend sat in 23E. She didn't have to clamber over anyone or have them climbing over her to get up.

This seat is close to the toilet as you can see so you hear people flushing the loo and they tend to queue up outside so you get bumped into. The infotainment system had to be reset three times before it started working. Food is a joke, bland, uninspiring and difficult to eat in such a confined space. Glad I've had a decent breakfast. Would have preferred a top quality sandwich instead

Leg room was a problem at this window seat (assume all the K seats had the same issue). There was a mechanism under the seat in front that basically negated the space my right foot would have gone. First time I've encountered such an issue. I like to be able to stretch the legs a bit, especially on a long flight, but their design made that impossible.
