Interesting article! Does anyone know what the approximate pitch and recline of those early Qantas and and PanAm business/clipper class seats was? Given regular economy class pitch was still pretty generous then, you'd assume pitch for business class was comparable to the more spacious Premium Ec...

Your advice about the odd-numbered window seats being the 'true' window seats (as opposed to the ones closer to the aisle) is not entirely true.

Theoretically you can use the EK lounge in SYD, which definitely has some advantages over the QF lounge: the wine and spirits are better (including actual champagne); the food spread is usually pretty impressive (though I don't know how good it is late in the evening prior to MH140, as the lounge...
