United 777-200 row 16 or 32?

We are flying from Newark to Ne Delhi and can't figure out if row 16 has more legroom than the other Econ. Plus seats since it is a bulkhead? I know row 32 does, but we'd prefer not to sit so close to the bathrooms. Does anyone know if row 16 has more legroom than the standard Econ. Plus?

Yes it does. You can get out from the window or middle seat fairly easily without disturbing the aisle passenger. Best row in economy. Only thing is the immovable armrests.

The armrest thing doesn't bother us. We are both very thin so the fact hat the seats are an inch narrower doesn't matter either. The leg room is important since my husband is 6'5. We really don't like being near the bathroom because so many people gather in that area (row 32). We just wanted to make sure row 16 has more than the standard amount of legroom that Econ. plus offers.
Thanks

At 6'3" with long legs I see a bulkhead choice as being on of knee-room over foot-room. In a bulkhead seat I have more space in front of my knees. Can cross my legs but not stretch them straight. In a regular seat I give up knee-room to get foot-room - the space under the seat in front of me.

Foot-room is more important to me than knee-room because I just have to straighten out my legs as much as I can.

Row 32 has lots of foot-room but it is a busy area.

The question I have about row 16 is: does the bulkhead wall go down to the floor or are there cutouts at the bottom or something that give more foot-room?

If I did end up in 16 then I would definitely want an aisle seet.

If the answer is "no" to my row 16 question then I would prefer rows 17, 18, or 20. Window seat.

I think row 16 aisle seat is just a curtain part way before the wall. That's the seat my husband will take. I like the knee room. Row 32 seems appealing with the legroom and all, but the people gathering around waiting for the bathroom can be bothersome.

It's a solid wall. If you're so talk that even the extra pitch is not enough, then 16C or 16H are better as you can extend your feet into the aisle of the BF cabin.
