Lie (almost) flat seats CX ex BNE

Not open for further replies.



Possible the wrong site to pose this question, but anyway.

Does anyone know if the CX J class seats out of BNE to HKG are the new J class flat seats?

Having been given aircraft type (330) and seat numbers, and having looked at the CX and seat sites, I am left with the impression that they are the 'old' J class seats.

Has anyone recently flown BNE-HKG CX J class recently, if so what type of seats were they?

I have scanned Skytrax and there are no BNE-HKG reports.

Having read the milage run treads, I still find travel a 'journey', and am (still) missing the old days of full service airlines, and particularly F class.

While the F class available is generally excellent service and everything the journey should be, and the old full service on every airline days - had a certain romance now gone.

I can remember my first flight, TWA SFO-JFK (NYC in those days!) connecting BOAC JFK-LHR, all in F class and just before my 4th birthday (in 1962).

Whilst I have wandered off track rather a lot, I've been lucky enough to haveI spent my travelling life up the comfortable end of the 'plane.

Anyone know the answer to my original question?

CX fligthts from BNE, CNS and PER all use the 2-class A330 with their regional business class, not the new business class flat/sloping sleeper seats. Their MEL flights use 3-class A330 aircraft with the new seats.

One way to tell is to look if F class is sold on the flight. If it is, then its the 3-class A330 and hence has the new business class sleeper/slider seats.

If you want flat seats BNE-HKG you need to use QF on their A330, which all have Skybeds - just not daily flights. This is why I am heading to HKG next week via MEL.
