The wife, a friend and I are travelling AKL-DXB-CDG in May (Economy).
I am looking at reserving seats on the outbound leg AKL-DXB (and maybe Dubai to Paris as well).
I was thinking about booking us the into three seats in the middle row (of four) and hoping no-one is put in the other one. Or, just booking three on the side. My wife cannot stand being hemmed in, and will need an Aisle seat. I'm not too worried, but would rather not have to disturb (or be disturbed) others climbing over two people to get to the bathroom. I'm a big guy, 6'3", my wife is small, and our friend doesn't take much room either.
What do you think?
