Just trying to get into one post all of the reviews and hear-say with the Business Class beds that airlines are now offering.

Please feel free to post what you've heard about them, both good and bad! Interesting to see the huge differences between these very (seemingly) similar products!

Flew British Airways' new Club World on London-Washington B777 G-RAES last year, and it was a remarkable product. I must say that Speedbird's fully flat bed in Business was much better than Virgin's seat in Upper Class. Virgin's does not recline fully... about 170 degrees, so you find yourself falling down, or sliding down into the seat, and your feet are literally jammed into the seat in front of you. Although Virgin's cabin service in J is superior to Speedbird's. Speedbird's seat was just far...far better. I would love to try Speedbird's FIRST class on a long haul transatlantic.

I have flew BA's club world and First Class before. Since the new club world, I don't recall flying BA First Class. Although Club world seats are shorter than First, I think it is acceptable specially saving of couple thousand dollars. BA crew are very professional. Food was good. I like the Club World seat on the upper deck very much. Flew Virgin Upper Class twice before (RT basic). On both of my flights, I was very much looking forward to it because of all the press and write up but once on board, what a big disappointment. ( The new seat was so uncomfortable, crew was not very professional, and many more....). Luckily I was on an award ticket from my SQ Kris Flyer program. As long as BA is around/available, Virgin will never get my business, this is for sure!

CX New Business Class: Not fully flat like the BA bed but amazingly comfortable in both upright and sleep modes. Best position for sleeping is the sunbed position. Not a patch on CX First Class obviously, but still a delectful way to travel.

Best points: seat is wonderfully soft and comfy, pillows (silk/cotton design) are marvellous too!

I've flown on BA's and SQ's C class beds. More so on the SQ ones. They're both great, although I found sitting facing backwards on BA's version a little bit disconcerting at first. You can get a good night's rest on either one of them. SQ's product doesn't go horizontal, but it is flat and also pretty good. I'll fly either one in a heartbeat, depending on whether my BA exec club or Krisflyer account needs a jumpstart. Would like to try the CX, VS and NH one though. I've heard varying accounts on those.

Good news for all who like the Virgin product but dislike the seat.

Britax fully flat beds will be installed, starting July 2003. This will be accompanied by a new on board service and cabin refit.

That is still confidential VS info at the moment (until it is announced to the world in the next few weeks).
