China Southern has rolled out another upgrade to its Australian services, with today's debut of the airline's latest Airbus A330 on its Sydney-Guangzhou flight.
The aircraft includes fully lie-flat beds in business class, replacing the current angled lie-flat design for a better trip to the airline's hub at Guangzhou and back.
Already seen on China Southern's flights from Brisbane and Perth, the new seats feature on the morning Sydney-Guangzhou CZ326 service, although they'll be most appreciated on the overnight CZ325 return leg.
This is the same flight which from October 28 will play host to China Southern's Airbus A380, at which point the Sydney-Guangzhou afternoon service (CZ301/302) is tipped to inherit the new A330.
Further down the track Sydney is also tipped to see China Southern's Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the airline says.
The new fully-flat seats fold down to 188 cm (6 feet 2 inches) in bed mode.
In terms of width, you've got a reasonable 51 cm (20 inches) to spread out, while the 2-2-2 cabin layout means that there's no middle seat.
You'll be entertained with a 38 cm (15 in) screen during the flights, while there are also in-seat screens for every traveller in economy.
Melbourne's daily CZ service to Guangzhou will also be upgraded to an Airbus A330-300 with the new seats by the end of October.
