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:

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?
Sorry to bump an old thread but just trying to get some suggestions on seating for my Big Personal Trip next July. Just checked EF and found we have a 33B SYD-HKG and 77A HKG-JFK.NM said: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.

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.
Assuming this is the new BC, I don't think that any of the seats are really good for couples. I liked the new seats, but it wasn't easy to talk to the person next to you. We were in the 1-1 configuration upstairs on a 747. To be seated next to someone, you have to pick something like 29A & 30A or whatever, rather than 29 A & B for example. You kind of have to stand up over your seat to talk to the person next to you, which isn't that easy.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...
I really liked them, but not as much as BA new club world.HardieBoys said:Just came back to Sydney on CX101 a few days ago, and noted the new lie-flat business seats, which have a herringbone arrangement. The seats look narrower than the previous business seats. Has anyone flown in them?
