I remember the rear lounge area on the Viscounts. Well used when returning from Port Hedland to Perth in the 60s.And I could have sworn seeing a small library area on one of the first Pan Am 747s to visit Sydney in the early 70s, but I’ve never seen any photos showing this.

Love to get back to the Yasawas and the Blue Lagoon. Have great memories sitting on the balcony, drinking wine and watching the sun sink into the sea.

Surprised at the J seat reduction. Would have expected more leisure folks choosing to fly J these days.

Still prefer Air NZ when flying to NZ from Perth as it’s a non-stop flight to Auckland, but hate the current J seats. And it’s painful to see couples caught out when they book A and B seats.

Still love the Cirrus layout for long-distance trips. May be difficult for Cathay to better this layout.

Meant to add that sleeping tablets seem to reset the body clock a lot faster.

Believe depends on flight class. When flying for work long distances in economy, used to take prescription sleeping tablets so that I could be effective the next day, but there were noticeable side effects. Now that I'm travelling in Business for leisure, one or two Restavits do the trick.

Also recommend phoning Qantas at exactly the time, or slightly before, the seats are released, as popular routes seats are snapped up very quickly, sometimes within the first few minutes of their release.

Hmm - according to the April SMH article, with a revised range of 9700 nm, it looks like the ULR could make SYD-LHR in a single hop. Interesting.

I believe that's a key question - can the ULR version fly direct SYD-LHR?
