I apologise for asking what may seem a very boring question. I have looked at all threads here which seemed relevant, and have studied endless photos of the cabin on multiple websites, but I'm not much wiser. If this question is too dull for words, please look away!
I have not flown business class long haul for 13 years, and this is our first time ever with BA (previous long haul business class seats were Qantas, Air Canada, KLM, United and so on, which didn't have this new BA arrangement with the pods / walls / barriers).
I have reserved 17 A and B outbound on the 747-400. Return flight it seems to be a 777, I couldn't get aisle+window so have gone for 10 E and F.
I can't understand how 17A (window) gets in and out of the seat because of the partition; the only route I can imagine is behind 17B, is that right?
Similarly, I still can't figure out how the middle seats (homeward bound) get in/out of there. We walk behind 10D or 10G?
People mention 'stepping over another passenger's legs', when the other passenger is reclined. If this is like stepping over a single bed, I can't imagine how any reasonably fit and not overweight person could do it, especially multiple times? I realise I'll see it soon anyway, it's that big a deal, but I'm kinda restless and will need to get up about every two hours. The flights are ~8 hours. (The other passenger/s will always be strangers and I'm already feeling sorry for them with my restlessness.)
Many thanks for polite and informative replies.
