    Not much good to me. I'd have to fly backwards for a few hours to get to Sydney.

    Would they make it all business, or would it be more like a premium economy product

    Sounds like it business like product only, not sure if this includes premium economy or how it would compare to current business class fares, as they can't afford to have too many people on plane. Something to do with fuel usage.

    A few of the U.S. carriers now have "premium only"
    service aircrafts from NYC to LA such as united's
    Premium Service.

    The planes typically only contains seats spaced
    at better than economy but worse than
    business, excellent food and service.
    Price is > economy but < business.

    These have been very popular in the U.S.
    and it would not surprise me if it becomes
    a larger trend.

    Time savings

    Would have to save a considerable amount of time.

    Although some like to have the exercise enroute on the stop midway I'm sure many people woudl like to just get there faster.

    How much time would be saved on the direct flight 5 hours?

    I imagine would be something like Singapore's ultralonghaul flights SIN-LAX and SIN-EWR, ie economy plus and business plus.
