Anyone know what now classes as a "good" business seat on the revamped Virgin Australia's 777's? Row 5 used to be great.

Virgin's 777s haven't been refitted with the new business class seats yet, so probably a bit early for anybody to know what's a 'good' seat in that configuration. The refurb is now expected to take plane "in the first half of 2016".

They have the new seat maps out on flights from April 2016. Mainly VA2 / VA1

Yes, so if you can judge off those seat maps using the usual rules you're ahead, but 'best seats' from actual hands-on (bum-on?) experience will be a little further down the track.

Are Etihad still operating the SYD > AUH route that VA usually operates 3 times weekly? I was of the understanding that Etihad would operate it whilst the VA 777 underwent heavy maintenance, presumably the upgrade would be conducted over this time also?
