QF Long Haul Business Class Feedback Wanted

Mon Jun 08, 2009 6:26 pm

I'm flying LHR/AKL in a few months in business class. I know NZ have a fabulous product with Business Premier and love the seats. However QF is around £1k cheaper but the seats don't look like they go flat - sometimes thats ok but some of those ones are really uncomfortable as you kind of slide down them in the night! The QF fare is via BKK or SIN.

Has anyone who has ever flown VS Upper or NZ Business Premier (both have the same seats) plus on these QF seats got any feedback for me in terms of a comparison?

If you are on a Qf 744 there is a slight slope but i never had any trouble sleepping on my flights to london and back. On the 380 they are a true lay flat and very comfortable,the one advantage i can see is that they are not in the Hearing bone layout as VS & NZ.So if flat bed is what you want book QF32 but due to late arrival you may need to overnight on sydney.

Thanks for that. I actually like herring bone for privacy but everyone is different! Am now looking at SQ - ridiculously cheap business class fares down under right now.

wish it was the same the other way still at stupid levels, BA & QF are at around 9>10K for next February. I realise they may come down closer to the date i want to travel but buy how much ???

I have flown the "herringbone" on AC's 77W's and love the privacy. I've also been on numerous QF 744 Biz class flights and never had a problem "slipping down" the seats. The upperdeck on QF's 744's has an exclusive feel about it. Personally I would think twice before paying GBP1000 more for NZ seats.... I don't like SQ's new Biz class seats - the flip-over concept to form a flatbed is a pain + sometimes it can be extremely uncomfortable to try and get some sleep in the diagonal position.

Look take EK's A380 LHR/DXB/SYD/AKL a great quite ride upstairs, with lay flat seats, usually great service and if you look around I think you'll find they are a lot cheaper than either BA/QF, who seem to have their heads in the 'high sky' where their prices are at the moment.

QF have some very good fares at the moment. I just booked LHR-SYD in J for less than £2000GBP - On the A380 too!
