    Sorry, forgot to answer that!

    From my experience, the seats at the front of each section (bulkhead, the ones with extra foot room) do not have an armrest that can move since the TV and food tray are folded up into the armrest.

    Other seats have the TV and tray on the back of the seat in front of them, so the armrest can be lifted up.

    Also, if the plane has three columns of seats the ones in the middle column are best since you don’t block anyone.  I found that sitting on the outside columns is awkward since I must be in the aisle seat and if anyone wants to use the toilet, they must climb over me since I cannot move. In the middle, they can always exit from the other side.
