Paid the extra £31 to choose this seat 2 days before the flight- was easy to do, wanted to experience the upper deck as not been on A380 before. In a party of 5 who had the seats behind: 82j & k and 83 J and k. We're pleased we had. Airbus is very comfortable- the seats width snd legroom seemed on a par with our 777 flight in prem econ to Hong Kong- so seemed good value. We got the usual blanket but also toothbrush which was nice extra. Service from both stewards was great- polite, efficient and quick. Entertainment system was good and worked very well. Liked that the seat rest goes up which makes it easier to get in and out. The 5 inches of extra room on the window side is a great help as is the window side boxes which stored our hand luggage and duty free so no need to put things under chairs which meant all the legroom was for legs. Got 6 hours sleep so figured the night flight mode and quietness of this back cabin was good. The stewards do go up and down but didn't interrupt my sleep. Quieter aircraft than 777 and the cabin at the rear on upper deck is smaller in rows of seats so feels more like prem econ. The 2 back seats in 83 which carry the bad seat wRning on seat guru were fine for our teenagers. They weren't bothered by the galley at all and enjoyed the flight a lot. Would say being on upper deck was worth it.
