AA 763 Intl J bulkhead is the best option?

Booked IB J MAD-TLV This is what seatguru claims the product is as well as CS said it's a 332.
I'm unable to choose seats online so I can't see for myself, but the CSR said that the seats are C1, A2 etc... like the 333 is configured. CSR was extremely confused whether it is a lie flat or not.
Any way to double check this?
It's not lie flat it's like domestic first, nice big seats but little recline.

Based on experience?
It's the 332 or 333? Because when I check my TLV-MAD leg it's a 333 lie flat, and seatguru says it's the 332 as well.

Seatguru doesn't always get the plane right based on the flight number. If your ticket has a plane type listed I would go based on that.

Ticket doesn't say.
I'm taking the flight regardless, and chose seat 2A which is perfect for either configuration.

It's usually proper J, aircraft can vary. 747 upper deck is supposed to be a little nicer.

i think the layover is very long for 747. most of the flights leaving london after arriving from tlv look like 777 until the evening making it a whole day spend in lhr. have seat on hold plus that day has a lot of availability for 70 aa and a couple hundred taxes. i can also book swiss through zrh but need to decide if i want to use the extra miles. i have a few hundred k aa lying around and this is a good opportunity to burn some

i usually go to the metal carrier and start a cash booking. when i get to seat selection, i see what kind of aircraft and i match it up with seatguru especially when seatguru says there are 3 versions of this aircraft. this way, at least i get the plane type info from the carrier and can base it off that

AC 787-9 with 2 hour stop vs UA 767-400 direct, both J, is AC worth it (not pressed for time)?

Gotta say, overall I love UA 772 (sCO) Jmiddle bulkhead much more than AA 77W J bulkhead.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

LH short-haul J, is either side of the aircraft better than the other? (not bulkhead)
currently in 5A, but since the other side of the plane has one less row I'm wondering if the seats there are all better or just row 2?

the reason why there is one row less is because of a closet taking up the space of row 1 so the seats are just as tightly squeezed on both sides of the plane

MAD - JFK IB A350 vs AA B772 J class
Any recommendation? (flying with infant if that makes a difference)
Also, is BA A321 to TLV lie-flat?
