I'm not that old but would assume on the 747 First class was on the upper lever rows till 8
No. There were 3 rows on one side and 2 on the other side. The upper deck of the 747-200 was quite small. After they decided it was not good enough for First Class they left the seats as they were and they became part of business class. But they were significantly better than the other business class seats on these "flying museums" as we used to call them, so they would put higher status business class passengers there.

I'm not that old but would assume on the 747 First class was on the upper lever rows till 8, so business started on row 9 across the board, econ always at row 21. Even the UP configuration started on row 21. Now that they don't have F anymore I guess they will renumber Business to row 1

There are many airlines like that, especially the Chinese. One always knows what rows are Business or Economy no matter the aircraft type
I guess that explains why the 737s jump from row 27 to 44 because 45 is an exit on the wide bodies (not anymore on the Dreamliner new configuration). Never knew this.

"I was the only non Jewish passenger on the flight I think"
He said the same thing on his flight to Rome, only then he was probably right (special flights that were RT ex-TLV). From HKG, I'm doubting it.
