virgin australia boeing 777-300er row 38 economy advice?

We are flying Bris-LAX in december and wondering about the row 38 in economy, we have the middle and window seat? I've read all the information and there is conflicting info about the recline, has anyone sat here, is the recline full.

Fully aware of the toilet traffic and potential smells/toilet flushing noise, not worried about these so please don't comment on this. I just really want to know about the recline action, is it the same as the remainder of economy seats?

Exit rows are taken and not keen on upgrading to economy x.

Thanks in advance :)

SeatGuru is the better option. FlyerTalk is the better option. The conflicting information is not out of the ordinary due to different variations of the same plane. Regardless SeatGuru indicates row 38 is the last row of a section and "may have limited recline" Hard to imagine the middle seat and the window seat are the two best seats on a plane with nearly 300 economy seats 1-2 months prior to departure. The exit rows are blocked and released at 24 hours or released at the gate, more likely than not. Hard to imagine the exit rows would even be considered an option. Enjoy the smell of the toilet and the sound of the toilet and the traffic of the toilet.

No need to be rude Richard H. As it is an international flight the exit rows are available to purchase already but are $150 each and taken, we just aren't willing to spend an additional $300 on economy x seats which is a shame but when the other seats are free it's a better option for us. Also our flight was changed so we have been dumped onto an almost full flight so yes there is very little available given our flight leaves in 2 weeks.

Not flown on VA 777-300 but as on other airlines I think even if limited recline a plus point is that you do not have anyone behind you so you do not have to worry about keeping seat upright during meal services or anyone bumping your seat from behind which can happen :)

So it is a trade off
