Thanks Martin!

Feel free to post more answers other AusBTers, but I personally think Cathay new, Emirates A380, JAL Sky Suite, JAL Shell Flat Neo, Lufthansa new seat, Air India 787 (hey, who cares about the colour when your eyelids are shut anyway), Emirates B777-300ER, Cathay old product, Lufthansa old seat and finally Emirates A330 (hey, it's not bad, but I've definitely seen better, especially on international).

JAL 767 seat is really bad, but I didn't post them here because they're upgrading it to the new Sky Suite (different from the 777 one - similar to LX's) next Monday anyway.

It is all subjective. Also what is definition of “comfort”? For seating during day flight? For sleeping during night flight? Some taller, some shorter, some heavier and some lighter. Some people believe that direct aisle access is paramount while other does not give a damn when sleeping in window seats. Some hate flying backwards while other hate to tuck feet into small cavity. It depends.

My personal take is for sleeping ANY flat seat is miles ahead of any slope ones and for day flight is highly depends on seat construction – some angle lie seats like older Qantas ones can be configured into Z position that surprisingly comfy for day snooze.
