Hmmm, never tried CO
's BussinessFirst product, so I can't compare. CX
's Business is quite nice, although I've only flown their 744s in Business. The seats themselves seem similar in that they are both slanted flat seats. The CX
seat is comfortable enough, allowing me to sleep for a few hours this past summer going to LAX
. I'd imagine Continental's seat can do the same. Dunno about IFE though.
I'd imagine CO
's flight time will be shorter, since they use 777 and the Airbus is a little slower. That said, the Airbus is noticeably less noisy.
I like CX
's service better, so if the prices are similar and frequent flier program isn't a factor, I'd go with CX
I'll be flying EWR
two weeks from now, albeit in Y. I'll be writing up a trip report, so you can take a look if you are interested.
