Who thinks Emirates A380 Mel to Akl are truly 180 fully flat beds?

Could have fooled me.

What about height?

I am 5'9' and barely fitted into the 'flat' space

... No I'm not that fat

They a generally flat, and usually come with a little mattress topper, although they may not provide the topper for such a short flight (Trans Tasman). The issue with Emirates A380 business seating is that the seats themselves are only an inch wider than economy seating (add another inch in bed mode), due to the minibar and work space located next to your seat.

The other point I have discovered about the seating is that the length varies between seats. I had a direct window seat (A) on a recent flight up to Dubai and found the length to be about 183cm long. On the way back to Sydney, I had an aisle/window seat (B), and found the length to be about 179 cm in length. So it varies depending on where you sit.

I agree not as good as qantas or Cathay.even in first Foot sagged on mine, too narrow and firm. But it is a balance. Food awesome, wine (except champagne much better on qf) awesome, shower awesome, staff a little sterile and too ass kissy! Entertainment awesome.

Yes it was aisle. Would be very surprised if it was 179. Also I am broad shouldered and found I had to off centre myself when sitting so my shoulder was not hemmed into the side panel at the aisle. That side panel could actually be pushed out a bit as it's not currently flush with the side if the seat

Agree Qantas is better
