I just came home on one of continentals 777 business first seats, and i was disappointed. in fact, i noticed that the seat was more comfortable in the cradle position, than it was in the lie flat position. although, im 6'3, i have seen other lie flat business class seats(raffles,qantas), and those were fine. Continentals engineers have some work on their hands. the angle just doesnt work

I have never flown anyone's J-class product...just domestic first on DL (yawn) but anyway. If you have the window seat and need to get up for the bathroom while the person next to you is sleeping...how does that work? Do you climb over them?

CO does not really have lie-flat seats. Nor does DL, but DL does have 60" of pitch compared to CO's 55". DL's seats are leather, CO cloth also CO has this weird footrest, like a metal stirrup. If you're window on either DL or CO and your aisle partner is fully reclined it can be a very awkward climb over especially when you're 2 meters tall and have to deal with the overhead bin. That's why I always fly the middle row on both. CO's 767's have a single seat in the middle. Flying it for 11 hours next week, we'll see how it feels with an aisle on both sides.

I actually like NW's WBC seats better than CO. CO's BF seats are also an earlier generation of lie flat seats...
Well to be honest, I actually like the old style sleeper seats... and find all the angled lie flat seats very uncomfortable, even CX or SQ. DL Business Elite seats don't bother me at all... as well as BMI's business seats.
Of course, the Virgin suites are truly the best J sleeper seats out there, but I guess only NZ is going with these seats. BA sleeper seats are also fully flat, but the problem is the narrowness of the seats.
