We are flying Tokyo/Sydney next March and at present we have seats allocated on the upper deck. I have revisited the Qantas website and can now see that we are due to fly on one of the 747s with an old first class cabin. Would the seats upstairs still have been updated to the latest Skybed II business class seats or are we better to now choose 4EF (as we would like to be side-by-side) in the old first class cabin?

If you see the old first class on the seat maps then the skybeds on that 747 will be the MK1 beds.

Therefore book the 1st class beds as they are fully flat!

Upstairs is the MkI style seats, i would definately recommend going for 4EF located in the old 'first cabin' if available

Chris published an article today which tell's you this

"1. These old first class seats convert into fully-flat beds, while the first generation of business class Skybeds you’ll find on the same aircraft are angled flat beds or ‘sloping sleepers’ – so you'll get a much better night's sleep being at the pointy end of the plane"
