The Upper Class Suite is now available on all flights to New York (JFK) and San Francisco. The suite is also available on selected flights to New York (Newark), Boston, Miami, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shanghai as it continues to be rolled out across the rest of our networks.

If it's an A340-300, then no. Do all the A346s have them? 744 is a maybe.

The HKG route is nearly always an A340-600, which are going through the refits at the moment. On flights in the last 3 months, the HKG route has seen a Suite fitted 346 14% of the time, and those odds are growing as more refits are complete.
