I am often asked is which are the best seats to choose on a flight, or in this case, what are the best First Class seats on the British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner? This is clearly a subjective question but after much time spent studying the seatplan of the British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner (see seatplan below showing the First Class seats on the British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner), I have concluded the best and worst seats on this Dreamliner.

There are just 8 First Class seats on British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. They are located at the front of the plane in front of Business Class. They are set up in a 1-2-1 layout so each seat has access to the aisle. Each First Class seat will also come with a 23-inch IFE screen (slightly smaller than that offered by Etihad Airways and Singapore Airlines which are both 24-inches). With just 2 rows of seats there arent really any particular seats to avoid, but it is worth mentioning that numbers A and K have windows (in fact 2 windows each) and are best for the solo traveller, E and F are together in the centre and offer a better location for couples as these two seats lie closest to each other. Conversely, these central seats are probably ones to avoid as a single traveller.

What are the best First Class seats on the British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner?
I think Seats 2A and 2K are the best First Class seats on the British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner because you are looking over or around the passenger in front rather than having a wall in front of you.This means that there is slightly more to look at when you are bored. I have chosen A and K as I always like a window seat, it makes feel me more connected to the outside and I find cloud formations strangely soothing.

What are the worst First Class seats on the British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner?
For me the middle seats are the worst as they have no window. 1E and 1F have no window and a wall in front of them so they are my least favourite seats in first class on the British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
