Nope, 123, but that's a long way home for you, no? Travelling a lot lately?

Try some of the passenger forums on SkyTrax Research:
http://www.airlinequality.com sometimes they have good feedback.

Have a great trip!

Depends on what airline you'd like to compare it to? What airlines have you flown in Business Class?

On CX, you'd most likely get a choice of Japanese, Chinese or Western meal.
Depending on the aircraft type, you'd either sit in the current Business Class seat, the new "Regional" Business Class seat or the Long Haul Business Class seat.. which is the best because it reclines to a fully flat bed and has AVOD IFE.

GuyBetsy1: I´ve flown many business classes, but I was not out to compare, more like to see what I can expect (type of service, ammenities, comfort, etc.).

At CX what you can expect is some of the best service, food, and comfort in the sky, especially in business class. If you want details, go search in the trip report forum as there are plenty of trip reports on CX business for you to read through.

I took that exact flight. I was in Biz class, I got to sit in the cockpit for about 1.5 hrs (the last 1.5hrs including landing) it was awesome, great service, great FA's, great pilots. I was so happy with CX. I slept for the meal service (having just gotten off a 14 hr flight from DFW, and I had some beers in my system.) so I cant help you much there, but it was great.
Go big or go home

Most of the time CX is a fine airline but they do have their bad days too, so try not to have your hopes too high in order to avoid any disappointment.
cathay pacific, now you're really flying
