Don't know about the aircraft you will be on, but I have been on their A300-600 twice within the last two weeks and it is by far the worst business class known to me.

The aircraft is a 777-200 but your experience definetly frightened me. NW didn't have any seats and I want my miles for DL so CZ was my only other option for biz class. No way I'm flying coach for that long.

Thanks for the help. Doesn't look all that promising after reading the reviews� Thank god,I'm flying with SQ to MAA from CAN and coming back to U.S. with SQ business all the way. What a huge difference it will be since SQ is just nothing short of perfect.

I flew China Southern business class dozens of times between CAN and LAX, AMS, and SYD between 1998-2002. I found it far more comfortable than NRT-LAX on KAL business class (noisy FAs, no PFE), and some pre-2004 NWA business class to between US-Asia (seats that were decades old, with FAs that clearly lost any empathy years ago for someone paying $4000 for a seat).

You are traveling to CAN in October . . . trade fair I presume?

Yes indeed, I'm going to MAA from there and coming back to JFK with SQ and DL. It was one hell of a trip to book,but godbless the people at DL special member services it took some time and it definetly is not the best available but I'm still very happy with the results.
