I had the pleasure of flying CX
F in a 747 earlier this year (on BA
miles) and was thoroughly impressed with both the hard and soft products. Way ahead of BA
(only other F class I've ever flown, which is very impressive and pleasant in it's own right). This refresh looks like basically new upholstery and finishing, everything else looks pretty much the same, which is good, they still have a winning formula up there with the best.

These days you need a full cube (and maybe door) to classify as trend-setting in F : EK, SQ, OZ, EY etc
On the subject of doors and an enclosed personal "suite" as seen in SQ
etc, I don't feel this is necessary and seems far too extravagant (but then what else do you expect from EK
?). I personally like to feel like I'm still on a plane rather than shut up in my own box. The CX
seats, and to a lesser extent those on BA
, offer a high level of privacy and comfort, way over and above the J seats on the same aircraft, and yet are also sufficiently open to be able to chat to other passengers and flight attendants if you so desire. The attendants in CX
first are charming and I had a long conversation with the purser about her job and my holiday, she gave me tips on what to do in Hong Kong. I can't help but feel that this level of service would be lost if you shut yourself away in a suite.
