I am planning a leisure trip to Tokyo and because of FF I'm down to 2 options: QF via Brisbane on a A330-300 or SQ via Singapore on a 777-300ER. J class.

Hi ADL-SIN is on A330-300. SIN-NRT is usually 777-300ER. The only problem is the 9 hour wait in SIN if departing ADL. Business on the A330-300 is average. Its OK for daytime flight ,but the return to ADL is terrible as the seats narrow and not lie flat.I have given up on the SQ278/279 and now fly to MEL with VA, an get SQ228 (777-300er)to SIN. It saves 2 and a bit hours on the total trip time. Business on the A330-300 is 2-2-2 wheras on the 777-300er its 1-2-1.
Just a p.s. It costs the same to go ADL-MEl-SIN- NRT as it does to go ADL-SIN-NRT (or HND). if going on SIA as there is a special fare for J. Doesnt apply to F
Thanks plad! Yes aware of SQ278/279, I've been on that flight quite a few times (and complained about it a few times too!), but the SIN-NRT sector is lie flat at least. It is the reason I am looking at Qantas now after years of loyalty to SQ.

The new QF J class and seat are up there with the best. BNE is a breeze to transfer through even with a landside transfer connection only.

Tancho, have you looked at Cathay Pacific? Good consistent J product and the connection in Hong Kong is very efficient. Haven't checked on the timing, which is the limitation with few services to ADL.

I would go with:
Thanks for the suggestions! I have decided to go with QF. Good value with the Business sale fares.
With Classic rewards one way and some points and pay on the return, total out of pocket came up to just over $1400. Happy with that!
