Thank you @dajop.
Overall experience - EVA (BR). PJs, top shelf vintage champagne. Cool amenity kits. reverse herringbone.
FWIW, I got routes through that were 1.41 and 1.33 times the direct distance. The former was MEL-SIN-DEL-IST-ASB and the final sector is very much a backtrack - but the shortest way to get to ASB using *A flights.
TG has an excellent J.
I don't mind having the shades down at night, but I try to pick daytime flights and have daylight as I find that minimises jet lag. I know many airlines/FAs like to turn the cabin into night mode regardless of the local time because people pretend to sleep and don't need looking after.
