Well LX does have a 343 flying between ZRH and SIN, but only Y seats are bookable on the 9/6/13....
I am flying LX from ZRH to YUL earlier in the itinerary so that will be my first chance to sample J on them...
Here's the link to the recent CA 77W J report...I think the product on the A330 between China & Aus is much the same:
Flight Review: Air China 777-300ER Business Class Beijing-Los Angeles | The Points Guy
I may be in the minority but as I hate everything about BKK except for the airport, and have no desire to go on a bus tour of SIN I would actually prefer to spend the downtime trying out an airline I have never flown before (even if its not brilliant - its still J) on a short-ish Asian route.
There is some logic to that smitty...
I've never averse to the odd extra flight...
Grrr... I've just seen that TK have upgraded half their A330s to full-flat J seats.
Is there anyway of knowing whether the planes they usually put on IST-SIN are the new or old config?

Something else that may be useful to the many of us that transit BKK is that OS have announced that they are refitting all their long haul business cabins with the same product as LX...to be completed by May 2013 I think. They have a calendar where you can check if you are scheduled on the new J class prior to all aircraft being refitted. Availability BKK-VIE seems OK.
Austrian Business Class
I searched the dates on the TK website - it's listed as 'A330-300'. Would that be the old config?
I saw that new Austrian J website last week - looks very, very nice and I'd be keen to try it even if I dont understand their fascination with triangular plates!
