What do people rate as superior? Skybed MK1 or the equivalent product on Emirates 777-300s

emirates by far, I keep slipping down the old skybed and cant sleep. I would give skybed 6/10, emirates angled flat 8/10 and cx or emirates newer seats 9/10

Cannot agree more - it is more convenient to sleep in Emirates lie-flat then in Qantas one. Though should add that for day usage IMHO Qantas definitely better - Emirates too narrow

Had a great night's sleep in an unrefurbished QF A330-300 Skybed MK1 from SIN- MEL four nights ago. Can't see how anyone can 'slide down' when there is a plate at the end that pulls out specifically to stop that happening. Anyway, definitely superior, but Skybed MK1 is obviously not long for this world...

I've done both to Melboune, Emirates far better TV and entertainment, so try that enroute to singspore for example, as for sleeping...pretty similar, more width with Qantas. It's a bit crazy that this time next year Skybed mk1 will be only a memory!

I suspect a couple of mk1 747's will be around a little while longer.

Fair point, I've often wondered why JQ don't re-upholster the MK1 in Orange and one up the other LCC for 'business class' ;)
