Just to think, only a few years ago they were going to install "European" Business class on all the A330.... Well done QF!

Got to admit. Of all the redeye flights I've done PER-MEL, the best sleep I got was on the 330 with the Skybeds. Maybe because I was so dreading it that I put no pressure on myself to sleep. Or maybe it was all the wine I had beforehand :P

I think competitive pressure from VA may have helped in this respect ...

Wow, this almost makes me feel old. I remember when the Skybed first came out and was discussed in hushed tones... And the jealously when a colleague actually got to travel on it!

Euro Business is far worse than the international Premium 2x3x2 product that QF installed on some of the 330s
