As I had guessed earlier, there will be 4 lavatories in economy class cabin behind row 29. However, in the business class cabin, there are actually 3 lavatories instead of just 2 as shown by the booking engine seat map. There will be 2 behind row row 3 and an extra one behind the cockpit. 

All seats in row 45 are exit row seats. Originally the booking engine seat maps showed 45HK as bulkhead seats instead by putting a galley in front of it. But as I suspected, that couldn't be the case. So there are a total of 4 exit row seats 45ACHK in this configuration.

There are plenty of baby basinets throughout the cabins. Basically all bulkhead seats will have at least one basinet. So there are a total of 6 basinet in the business class cabin (1AC, 1DG, 1HK, 7AC, 7DG, 7HK), and 6 total in the economy class cabin (22AC, 22HK, 2 at 23DEFG, 2 at 46DEFG)

There are only two seats, 52A and 52K without a window. So if you are flying in economy class and want to play with the electronic window shade, then avoid row 52.
