I need my fellow a.netters' help to settle an office discussion: which airlines offer flat beds (regardless F or J)? So far we've only found Lufthansa, Air France, Finnair, British Airways, Singapore and Air New Zealand about to start on its AKL-LAX and AKL-SFO routes... But which else? (And if possible, for how long?)

In the U.S., AA and UA both offer lie-flat beds on their 777s and, in the case of UA, 747s. I am not sure if the CO, DL or NW international J products have lie-flat beds, or just nearly-lie-flat beds. Also, IIRC, doesn't US have lie-flat beds in their A330 J cabins where F used to be?

SAA's flat seats in J on the A346 are truly excellent. They go totally flat and have enough pitch to enable a 6 footer to stretch out. You are supplied with a duvet and pillow and there is no option other than to go to sleep! They are one of only 4 airlines to get a 5 star rating for their seats on http://www.flatseats.com (the others are BA, VS and IB)

Quoting Andz (Reply 12): SAA's flat seats in J on the A346 are truly excellent.
Yes they are, but personally I prefer the Millennium configuration on the 744's - those J-class seats are sheer heaven. The flatbeds on the SA A343 and A346 are comfortable, but tend to feel like a doctor's examination table after a while.
