British Airways, Finnair and Virgin all have Flat Bed (not wedgie or angled) offerings in busienss. Are travellers able to update which other airlines are now offering flat beds in busienss and on whIch aircraft?
I know that Swiss and Lufthansa are, or intending to introduce flat beds in business, It is stil confusing who is offering what as most airlines are reviewing.
Any updates would be useful to read.19 Feb 2011
I know Cathay Pacific offer flat beds on the following longhaul aircraft:
B747(to/from Europe and New Zealand and maybe North America)
B777(to/from Europe and North America)
A340(to/from New Zealand and Europe)19 Feb 2011
Cathay Pacific should be rolling out its new business class offering, starting with an A330-300 on some HK-Sydney flights in March. So watch out for it. For more details, please refer to our previous reports:

All grade 1 airlines are now offering flat beds in business class in long haul (>8 hours). If you are now travelling and not resting on a flat bed type seat, then either you are in wrong airlines or totally out of touch.20 Feb 2011
Fully flat beds in J on all Qantas A380s. The 747 fleet will be reconfigured with them over a fairly lengthy period commencing later this year (currently QF 747s have slopey beds). QF A330s also have the slopey beds and no plan to reconfigure these at the moment.20 Feb 2011
Fully flat beds on V Australia’s 777s. These currently fly to LAX, JNB and HKT (though the latter two will soon stop) and then Abu Dhabi will be added to the list.20 Feb 2011
According to the video on Swiss tonight, Shanghai will be flat from 10 March, and the whole 340 fleet likewise by early June. Good news indeed, for those of us who like our underwear to remain where we intended it to be…..
