This is their regional 2 class A330 layout (330). The long haul 3 class layout (333) does have skybeds that are similar to the QF ones (albeit on a greater slope).v8Statesman said:
NM said:CX have two configurations on their A330 aircraft. The ones shown in the schedule as aircraft type 330 are the two-class regional config with non flat cradle type business class seats. The ones shown as 333 are the 3-class long-haul config that have flat (sloping) business class beds.
I believe the only aircraft they have with the new seating product are 747-400s and 777-300ER shown as 74A and 77A in the schedule. I am not aware of any A330 aircraft being fitted with the new generation premium cabins.maninblack said:But they now have some with the new flat seat. How are these shown in the schedule?

Edited to add that there is now a 33B config that has the new business class product. I learn something new every day. It seems there may be 2 such configured aircraft presently and they are scheduled for CX101 SYD flight some days.
Looking at the seat maps the 33B is 1-1-1 and the 77A is 1-2-1. Do we have anyone with experience of either config and suggestions for which seats are good for couples? Mrssimongr is not the most confident flyer so I am tad concerned if we are going to be separated - mind you might save my hand getting crushed like normal...
