B/Class On SAA Airbus A340-600

Mon Jan 23, 2006 1:55 pm

I flew in business class on SAA's A340-600 over the weekend. If i am not mistaken they won a award for this ( Can anyone tell me more). The seat are wonderful if you take all the positions they can go into. Is it the norm on other carriers to have lie flat seats in business class. Especially the fact that you've got a choice for the seat to massage you during flight. Space galore as well, 7 windows per seat. Food absolutely excellent and the flight crew amazing, Thanks Valerie for everything you did for every one to make the flight as pleasurable as it was. Any other Airliners.netters who have made use of this service ?

SAA won best business class seat in the Skytrax awards in 2004 year beating VS and BA into second and third place respectively. I agree that the seat is very comfortable, unfortunately I have only used it once (FRA-JNB) and it was a great flight.
