Mayasian airlines which seats to choose in economy?

We are travelling by Malaysian airlines for the first time and also this will be the longest journey we have ever attempted. From previous experience of 'long haul' we know that the choice of seat can be crucial. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I find www.seatguru.com very useful - you need to know what plane they are flying on the sector though.

Seatguru does is a very useful web site but it does not have information for Malaysian airlines. The following is a cut and paste for Malaysian airlines from Skytrax:

MALAYSIA AIRLINES



Economy Class - Boeing 777

Avoid row 20 - no window at seat 20A and 20K. Best seats 12A/C and 12J/K (bulkhead seats). EWR-KUL. Best seats in economy are 29 A/C (exit row seats). You are near galley, but enormous legroom makes it worthwhile.



Business Class - Airbus 330-300

At all cost, AVOID seat 9A as there is no window there.



Business Class - Boeing 777

Row 5 seat J or K . Best recline and best legroom. Boeing 747-400 Upper deck exit row 10A/C/H/K. H/K slightly better than A/C. A/C is set further forward, restricting view out window. Boeing 777-200 - Row 4 A/C or H/J Bulkhead row with cutout for extra legroom. Row 9 (again, A/C/H/J) is similar.



Economy Class - Boeing 747-400

26ABC, 48ABC/HJK are all bulkhead seats - so plenty of legroom. Row 38 although being bulkhead is by a cluster of toilets.

www.seatexpert.com has a seat map for Malaysian Airlines but only for the 747-400. There's color coding for good/bad/beware seats, but no comments added yet.
