Thought I would share this recent OneWorld RTW journey, in Business.
LHR/BOS on BA 777
JFK/SFO on American A321T their new transcontinental aircraft
SFO/SIN via HKG on CX 777 and A330
(side trip from SIN/BWN/SIN on Royal Brunei, A320 and B787)
SIN/KWI via DOH on QR enjoyed the A350 on the SIN/DOH leg
KWI/LHR on BA 747

I thought that the BA service had improved, and the mixed fleet crew on the return from Kuwait were very engaging.
The AA A321 service was excellent, with 2×2 seating in business, with a friendly service from the crew.
The long haul Cathay transpacific service was ok, I do think they have taken their eye of the ball re service.
The RB 787 was good, managing to get to FL 43000 for the short hop to Singapore.
Delighted to try QR’s A350, which I thought was more spacious than the 787, maybe the lack of centre overhead bins contributed to this, I will file a separate note on this trip.
The BA 747 on the last leg was half empty so a pleasant upper deck experience with the friendly crew.
Overall a good trip, and going westward certainly helped overcome the jet lag.
