Hi. I'm planning on flying MEL-SIN in June in business and was wondering who has the better J class - Emirates or Qantas? Given that the only international business I have flown is Malaysian, would it be worth my while sampling both - ie emirates MEL-SIN, Qantas SIN-MEL?

Similar concept, but better execution by QF. Try SQ instead.
Thanks Serg. Also should point out that im after QFF SC's as it will make me gold.
Then QF without any doubt.

That will depend on whether you are lucky enough to score the new J seats on the QF A330. There will likely only be a couple of the international planes that have been reconfigured flying at the time but if it is the new J seat then Qantas will definitely be better. Unfortunately it will still be a bit luck of the draw as to whether you will secure it or not though.

By end April, there should be 3 New J A333s...VH-QPA currently online, QPC due online end March, QPB due online end April....so a very high chance of the daily MEL-SIN-MEL QF 35/36 being New J by June...but there's always a chance of an aircraft change due mechanicals/schedule change

QF if you can get the new A330 seats otherwise definitely EK (even though it is a lie flat seat)

I have found Emirates seats to be not quite flat for me. I also find them tight at the shoulder level since I am broad shouldered

I flew Emirates, personally didn't think they were as good as Qantas.
If i was flying again I would pick Qantas over Emirates but living in Perth, dont have that luxury to choose :)

If it was PER - SIN in J, you could choose between SQ and ...... Well at least you wouldn't need to spend time on the choices!

skybed mark 1 is fairly comparable to the EK 777 business class. id go with QF, as i prefer the "australian" service and likely the new business suite.

Like so often with these questions, the answer is it depends.
But I agree with others here, unless travelling as a couple who want to chat away the trip, if you can get a refurbished A330-300 with Qantas then that will make most happy (with a recommendation to have a feed in the Lounge prior to boarding).
