Qantas - Qantas Frequent Flyer

I would have to say that I am very impressed with the new Qantas Business Class seat on their Airbus A330 and Boeing Dreamliner. I have just taken two flights with this product and am impressed - much better than the product on the A380 or Jumbo in my opinion (despite the wonderful legroom the shell design provides). I also like the Qantas service - personally, I am not one for over-attentive cabin crew that ask every 30 minutes if I am OK - if I need something I will get up out of my seat and ask or will use the call button. Mind you, I see a plane as a method of transport to get from A to B - it is not meant to be a hotel room, so I do not necessarily look for cabin suites, on-board showers etc (but fair call to those who seek such amenities) so my comments reflect that view.

It's an accurate statement though. I've flown BA F on the 77W and it was a reasonable Business Class hard product and in my experience, a Y soft product.

I’ve heard great reviews on Gulf Air’s new Business Class (which is also used by JAL, KAL and Oman). I’ve seen pictures and the finishes look stunning and the service from the reviews are supposed to be very good so I’d imagine they are up there.

Hard to beat J class on VA 777/330 - on all metrics IMO

After so many years of flying in many airlines in every continent, in premium cabins only and always F every time when it was available, I have never experienced “over-attentive cabin crew that ask every 30 minutes if I am OK”.
