I am happy that they did not go the cheap route (see Delta) with the detailing on the shell. This shell is more Cathay-like with the wings at the headrest and the metal trim.
The CX shell has one truly terrible feature which unfortunately AA seems to have copied -- the "wing" mean there is a deep "cut" in the seat's shell on the aisle side. This makes for a truly uncomfortable feeling of exposure when the seat is in the lie-flat position, as your head is directly exposed to the aisle. I haven't tried the US Airways seat but it looks like they don't have the same problem; the shell is complete and offers some head privacy in the full-flat position.
Has anyone at AA actually tried sleeping on the CX seat on a long-haul flight, with air blowing on your head with every passing passenger going to the bathroom?

So, Cathay Pacific rolls out it's new 777 Business product and gets loads of praise from all over.
Not from me. I'd frakly rather fly the existing angled AA seats than these new CX seats, which lack any sense of privacy.
