I am going on holiday to Barbados in January and have the option of flying either in BA Club World or VS Upper Class. Can anyone tell me what is the likelihood of getting a flat bed in BA, or a suite in VS?.

Was not aware VS has those accomodations yet in 1st, but my folks frequent flight on BA Club world and enjoy is quite alot. According to my dad, the BA fold down in 1st is the only place on a plane he has been able to catch some ZZZs...

J2000 with the slope to the floor will never beat BA flat beds. The new VS suite is fantastic and if you can be promised that on a flight then go for it if the price is better than BA Club world. Flat beds and that is what you get at BA beats J2000 hands down!!!!

No Suite to the Caribbean as yet, but J2000 isn't that bad. Still beats BA
Well you won't be getting the J2000, that's a definate! Those seats were ordered with the airline that ordered the LGW based 744s originally, Alitalia!
Personally, having sat in the VS Upper LGW Alitalia seat I would say go VS. I mean compare those picture by Tupolev! BA Club World on the 777s is crowded and always looks mixed up to me with all different directions!
Oh and my Mum and Dad flew to St. Lucia on VS and Richard Branson was sat at the airport saying hi to everyone getting off !!!
