Many Thanks BT, on the ball & adds much clarity.
However, having travelled in the 773 refurbished cabin in Sept 09, I would have to say it was not only a vast change to the ne cabins, but not as comfortable or suitable for overnight trips. The older Raffles was more suitable with softer higher seating, less noise, a better cabin design.
I would not choose to travel on their 777-300 services overnight.
I also think their offer of only one meal in 7-8 hrs to Sydney (Dinner or breakfast) is very poor, a minor cost saving to them, but has a great impact on their food standards, & reputation.
Its the rare time i have left a flight hungry, having had one meal in the 9 hrs i was aboard!
