I'm planing a backpacking trip to Australia in November this year. Right now I've booked ARN-LHR-HKG-BNE and SYD-HKG-LHR-ARN with CX. But then I thought, would SQ be a better choice? I'm mostly thinking of the comfort onboard. What do you think? Change my reservation to SQ or keep it with CX?

Both excellent carriers from what ive heard... You should spare yourself the bother of rebooking, because really, comparing SQ with CX is like comparing apples, with well... apples... But hey, what do i know...

There is NO choice, Mr Robbie86.
SINGAPOE AIRLINES is the only way to go and DO make sure you break the journey and spend some time at Changi Airport. It is THE great arial crossroads and you will be amazed.
Plane your journey to have at leat an 18/24 hour break (there is excellent cheap budget accomodation in the transit hotels airside in each terminal and with an onward boarding card you can exit immigration and go visit Singapore as well as exploring Changi.

I'd say you'd have a better chance of flying with a new product (seats) if you choose SIA. The new SIA economy seats look very comfortable and probably has the best IFE in the sky. The CX ones won't be on your route consistently for quite a while.
