IMHO the 787 is far superior to any there aircraft because it's the only one with clean, fresh cabin air. All other places take the air from an engine bleed.

One additional thing I’d suggest is worthy of consideration is cabin temperature and the availability of individual air nozzles at every seat.

Just done two flights in the last week in the A350 Qatar business. Easy winner for me. Also every flight is made better with decent noise cancelling headphones.

Agree. 787 is much better than the A350. Never feel tired and I reckon it's much quieter.

stay away from the galleys as they make a lot of noises plus the crew marching up and down like elephants sometime-had this glorious experience on qantas first class-never again!

One of the great things I find about SQ is that the cabin staff are very considerate towards those trying to sleep - cabin lights are dimmed sooner rather than later, the cabin crew tread softly and don't bump the seats, they shush anyone making loud noises and they don't insist on waking you up in the morning - you can emerge back into the world at your own pace so long as you do the right thing and be ready for when they prepare the cabin for landing.

The noisiest aircraft in any cabin IMHO is the B777. However, an excellent seat in business class may offer some compensation...

Utter nonsense. The A350 is 5dB quieter than the B787 in-flight overall, and up to 15dB quieter at the front of the aircraft (ie where business class is). Not opinion - fact.

Agree...A350 is more comfortable than B787. Also slightly more roomy.

Lets face it , they are all better than the DC3 but without any doubt the A350 is the best by far!!!
