The entire SAA A343 and A346 fleet are fitted with full flatbeds in J-class. Skytrax voted SAA's A346 flatbeds as the best in 2004, defeating both BA
in the process.
I haven't got the faintest idea what LH
's J-class is like. However, the SAA flatbeds are as comfortable as you can get for any flight. The seat pitch is 73 inches and there's laptop power supply and full audio- and video on demand available.
My experience and thoughts on JFK
: The best inflight service I have ever experienced, comfy seats, nice duvets and pillows, awesome food and great entertainment!
