CX is an amazing airline with a wonderful business class product, ranking up there with the best. I've never had a dissapointing flight with CX before and I've always found them to be just as good at SQ. Any business class is better than economy ;) .

Your sister paid for 10 business class fares? I would almost think a private jet would be cheaper.

CX is known as one of the best airlines in the world with good hard product and service, I haven't had any bad experiences in any of their classes in the past few years (Yes I've done all four classes with CX). I find the business seat is more comfortable to sleep in compare to similar seats on other airlines (Finnair comes to mind), and F&B is of good quality too (love their order-anytime wonton noodle soup). In terms of their service, although some may say their cabin crews lack personality which I agree if you're used to the Aus/NZ style crews. But what you do get is very efficient and courteous service and it is consistent, regardless of which crew member you get, and this can't be said on most other airlines. If you fly with SQ often, you should be familiar with the style of service CX offers.

I have always enjoyed flying business with Cathay. Their seats are great, the food is excellent and the crew are attentive. Hong Kong is also a breeze to transit through with excellent lounges. You also avoid having to transit through the States (via LA etc). I would take the Cathay option every time.

Cx has a fully competent business class offering, however, with something of an assembly line feel to it. In other words all the basics will be there without making it special in any way. The seat will be good, the entertainment good, the service efficient, and the food generally disappointing. The exception to this is their lounge in hk which is excellent.
