Qantas Skybed MK I. Hi Guys, for people 180cm+ , how do you find the Skybed MK I on the A330-300's? Are they best comfortable in fully-flat or more of a cradle position to sleep in? Got a BNE-HKG flight coming up which showed the New layout but has been changed to the old. Thanks (In Seat 3A)

"how do you find the Skybed MK I on the A330-300"
You enter the cabin and there they are!
The seat itself should be long enough for you to sleep in. Given QF97 is a day flight, I wouldn't stress too much about it.
Dont Worry, I saw your sense of humour :p

I fairly tall and flown one. Length is not an issue, but sloppy configuration is. I found it incredibly comfortable in Z position during day flight, but it not comfortable to sleep all night on the back. In lie-flat mode is spacious, but you inevitably slide down and from time to time have to reposition yourself. Again for day flight is superb – spacious and comfy. If you do not mind I can suggest to look at Emirates 777 one – it is not that wide in up position, but I found it more comfy in lie-flat one, perhaps angle is tad less and it makes all the difference. And I feel your pain about sudden changing new to old without even telling you – Finnair changed BOTH legs for me from my favorite superb new business to old pedestrian one. Never even send me apology letter.

if you have wider shoulders you may find fully flat on your back somewhat uncomforatable - I flew SIN-MEL in June on the old confirguration and found my shoulders barely fit. Apart from that quite a reasonable product.

I find that using/tweaking the various individual seat controls i can achieve a comfortable sleep/snooze position that is not the full angled flat position (ie... a flat 'base' (main bum area) with a slighty raised seatback/head, and a slightly lowered legrest..coupled with the pillow i can achieve side sleeping and back sleeping in this position...and i'm 180cm tall...100kg.. anyway...that's what works for me.
+ im a bit broad up top..and dont find the seat shell walls too much of a hassle
