It is very different. It will be the skybed 1, angled seat.

I'd recommend you don't waste your pass on the AKL J lounge.
Flying business, so does not need to use pass

As long as you don't need to sleep, the 2-2-2 Skybed 1 is still quite good and marginally better than a 737. You can access both the Emirates and Qantas lounge at Auckland Airport in addition to Melbourne's Emirates and Qantas lounges.
In your opinion, how much of a deterioration is it in terms of a product? BTW im Qantas Club Silver (Nearly Gold)
im QF silver, nearly gold. Any other lounges at akl?
Mate, Qantas Silver really does nothing for lounges except for a single entry. It's really just a shiny card with a couple extra perks (check in counters, luggage). Plus being 'nearly' Gold won't help.

Keep in mind there is only 1 332 with the Skybed left, so there is always a chance of the 332 swapping to the new configuration.

Only one left now - VH-EBG. The other EBL got converted to Suites late in 2018.

I have noted the above comments and responses and have a similar query. My Wife and I will be return to Melbourne on 21/02/19 on QF154 ( 12.05 pm) from Auckland in J and travel agent itinerary state the plane is an A 332 and seating is for an A and B seat. Qantas E- ticket notes that the plane is an A 330 and has scheduled departure same date and time, but no allocated seats. Need I worry, any ideas out there?
This is the seating chart for your flight - it's definitely the old-style A330.
Of course always subject to change and any 332 sub will give you a better seat.
