As reported in The Australian today

Southeast Asian flights to improve the number of connections by an estimated 25 per cent. The airline will upgrade services on Airbus A330 flights to Asia that are expected to include the introduction of lie-flat seats in business class. Officials will also argue that the diversion of London-bound travellers through Dubai will see 40 per cent more seats available for travel to Asia.

By lie flat i assume that mean Skybed 2 which would suggest that the A330 current and comming from J* will be the regional plane.

Good to see that we will have plenty of seats 40% more but not sure what the base is...
