I will be flying SIN-HKG, with reward seats only available on Cathay's 773 with the Regional Business configuration (2-3-2). What are your experiences with this seat? By the looks of things, it may be worth booking Premium Economy on Singapore Airlines instead (no Business availability) and saving 16,000 points. Am also *A Gold so will have lounge access, etc. The CX Regional Business product appears to be quite average...

I found it to be comfortable enough for a few hours, and the food was decent. To be honest, having the latest business class seats on a route like this wouldn't make a really big difference to me, except for maybe overnight flights.

For me personally, for a flight this length - I don't view it compelling enough to book J. Besides, SIA's prem economy is comparable to Cathay's business class seat. The only upside for booking J is that you'll get to experience the new Cathay lounge in Changi (unsure if it's open yet!?) - but since you're a gold depending on your alliance - you may get entry into the lounge regardless.

I fly MAA-HKG 2-3 times a year (as part of BNE-MAA), if there are last minute aircraft changes, i use the regional business class seat instead of the traditional A330 1-2-1 config which is awesome.
