Currently this flight is a 3-class 744 being sold as 2-class. At the moment the following first class seats are still available: 1A/K, 2A, 3A/K, 4A/E/K.volley said:We are flying QF26 Los Angeles to Auckland on Tuesday August 2. Does anyone know if the new Skybed has been fitted yet?
I would take the first class beds over the skybed as it is fully flat. My biggest dislike (have a few) of the skybed is that when in an aisle seat (preference), the way the arm rest goes down makes me feel as if i'm going to roll out into the aisle during the flight and therefore less privacy (I'm probably one of the few that would take the dreamtime seats over skybed).volley said:My - that was quick. Thank you very much. I do not know much about Qantas first class on this aircraft. I know this sounds a daft question but is it better than the new Skybed?
I know i'd sit apart from my wife. Best sleep i'd get.volley said:Thanks again. This is great! I am flying with my wife and I don't know how she will view sitting apart - unless we were opposite. But most people are kind enough to move if they are travelling alone.
I've flown them once in Business on a Brisbane to Christchurch flight. Only 8 seats for business class (2 rows of 2x2 in an old 737-200) so it's very cosy and the food and service are the same as Qantas (Qantas owned - NZ registered entity).volley said:While I am on - I fly business to Melbourne from Christchurch on JetConnect which I believe is Qantas owned. Wondering what it is like or is it just the same as Qantas. Thanks again for the info.
They are further apart than 4A/E due to the closet space at the front. Like you mentioned if the person is travelling alone (hopefully in 4F) then you're a good chance of sitting together.volley said:.....I have already been in touch with my travel agent and going to book 4A and E. I take it 1A and 1K and quite a way apart - with nothing in between??
For Jet Connect that would be 737-300 aircraft, not -200 series. Its better than BA Club Europe given that QF/JetConnect is 2x2 seating while BA CE is 2x3 seating. But the seat pitch is not like an international 767 operating AKL-SYD.CO BNE said:I've flown them once in Business on a Brisbane to Christchurch flight.
