Perhaps, but so what? The consensus is that SA's C class flatbed seat is the best out there by a substantial margin.

Is SA's 100% flat? Or is it similar to what QF, CX, SQ etc have?

I think there should be a separate category for strictly two-cabin airlines versus airlines that have a F, J, and Y cabin. It's a lot easier for airlines with 2-class configs to make their business cabins more spacious.

Fair enough. Although the product on the SAA Airbus longhaul fleet is only 2-class, the airline offers a 3-class configuration on the 744-fleet. The entire J-class has been fitted with very comfortable flatbed seats. I just had the pleasure of experiencing the product on the JNB-LHR-JNB route.
