Best business class, in your opinion? Hands up here for CX (probably you'll know that I'm talking about the 2011 version).
Also, worst business class? I vote Aerolineas Argentinas.

Of all the long-haul business class products I've flown, CX and EY really outshine the others. However, I do enjoy QF's offering whenever I fly them.
The most disappointing of those I've flown would probably be Kenya Airways (KQ).

"The most disappointing of those I've flown would probably be Kenya Airways (KQ)." WOW! Some people really flying! IMHO you should be glad that you came in one piece on KQ.
BA hardly can be classified as "nicest" but it so often cheapest offer from proper business. And I like Qantas. Never tryed Singapore and Cathay though.

I found CX's Cirrus seat overrated.
Main issue was storage space (having been spoilt by Emirates - I could seriously fit half my room in that little cubicle).
Also, when in sleep mode, the viewing angles of CX's IFE were ghastly.
They are by no means, the worst, or a bad seat, but I've had better.

I don't get the near universal acclaim for Cathay's Business seat either.
Let's just round it off that CX and EK (um, you probably know which seats I mean, B777-300ER and A330 for CX and A380 for EK) are the winners, with SQ and QF as runners up (again, self explanatory for the seats I'm talking about).

The most disapointing for me was BA Euro A320... The seats/cabin. Service was really good though.
Ah. Lufthansa and Swiss and some other European airlines are in the same category.

I have two contenders for worst business class: now defunct Viva Macau, where the only hot food on a 9 hr flght Syd-Mfm on a very aged 767-200 was the same sandwich only heated...
but the winner is Cubana de Aviacion, where electronic seat equipment not only doesn't work, it gives you little electric shocks, the same govt issued dreadful sandwiches are the only catering, and the forward tolet is generally unavailable, because that's where the crew keep their bags. And don't get me started on the rum!
