Sorry, this is my first post. I've read quite a lot of posts about people checking which plane/configuration their flights are going to be. My partner and I are going on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to SYD ex GLA via LHR and HKG next April. We'll be flying Business Class (I know loads of you do this all the time but Business is a big deal to us!!) with Cathay Pacific from London to Sydney. I'm wondering if I can find out if we'll be flying the latest 'new' flat-seat business class or the old style. Is there a way to do this? I know, from the itinerary the aircraft types but can't seem to work out if they'll be new or old style.
Maybe I'm being very dense and not seeing the obvious. Maybe someone will be able to help/point me in the right direction anyway.
The relevant flights are : 5th April 2008 - CX0254 LHR - HKG (A343)
6th April 2008 - CX 0101 HKG - SYD (A330 -200/300)
and return: 19th April 2008 - CX 0138 SYD - HKG (A333)
20th April 2008 - CX0257 HKG - LHR (A346)
All this has been booked from an agent in London and not on Cathay's websote.
Any help would be fantastic!!

Since you are traveling with someone that may want to be close to, you might prefer the old configuration.
The Olympus biz class seats are seperate little caves.
My wife and I reconsidering a future YVR - HGK - SYD trip for just that reason.
