For 77W ver 2, The side rows of Premium Economy (14A/C/H/K) are very poorly designed with recline severely limited by the wall behind. For the middle seats (14D/E/F/G), there is more recline space to the wall. When the seat in front reclines, it feels very claustrophobic and forget about trying to pick up anything below, since even untying your shoelace can be very difficult. On this plane, the first row of seats has more leg space than I've seen on other Premium Econ on AC. This is the first time I've noticed the recline in the last row so poor, and I've sat in 14K many times on other AC planes.
By tradition, members of the governing party occupy the seats to the right of the speaker or chair, with the premier and other ministers in the front benches. Occasionally, due to space constraints, members of the governing party may also sit on the left. Members representing opposition parties are seated to the left, with the leader of the official opposition sitting opposite the premier.

Our team were unanimous in selecting seats A or C, H or K in Rows 31-34 on this aircraft. On the plus side, you are at the quietest end of the cabin, will be amongst the first to deplane at destination, and stand a good choice of getting the full choice of meals on offer. Toilets are all to the rear, so no odours or queuing passengers nearby. On the downside, if the bassinet seats in Row 29/30 are full occupied by families with babies, there is a chance of occasional crying etc – so a good noise-cancelling headset would be a must.
