I haven’t flown them yet but a colleague flew their very old 2-2-2 Lufthansa style business class last spring. He said bad hard product (zero privacy, no direct aisle access) but service was “as good as Cathay”.
In short, if you’re lucky to fly on their 1-2-1 reverse herringbone new 789s, then you get the best of both worlds. If not, well, the soft product still shines!in reply to: Hainan Airlines international business class2 Oct 2018
BPP – I haven’t flown on EVA, but checked with a colleague who flies J class often from Seattle. He’s flown J on both 777 and 747 and said the service was incredible. His comment was – “as good as Korean Air, better than Cathay’s”. He did mention his only gripe was the choice and quality of vegetarian food (special meal) – not bad, but not the best.

I am aware in the minority here, but I’m a big fan of BA’s CW Asian/Hindu vegetarian. I hope DoCo don’t screw or up!14 Sep 2018
The longest I did on j class was DOH-ORD (on QR’s excellent QSuites) and yet felt I was being stretched already! So yeah, no thanks to these 16-17hr fights.in reply to: Qantas Perth-London non-stop flight delayed 17 hours9 Sep 2018
Hey Derek, as a oneworld Emerald (or Sapphire), I love T3 for the choice, and often go “lounge-hopping”.
I start at the AA lounge for their fabulous veggie rolls (as appetisers), then move on to the BA lounge for their crisps…. and finally settle down in the CX lounge for dinner, followed by a shower, followed by some excellent English trifle for dessert! I haven’t been to the new QF lounge to comment.in reply to: Terminal 3 LHR – Which Business lounge to use31 Aug 2018
It depends on what your criteria for airlines is.
For me, esp J class, it’s usually collecting miles. Which means, as both a oneworlder and Skyteam’er, I’d rather fly a less-than-comfy BA or KLM versus an Emirates. Both KL and AF have good African network. If you’re looking for oneworld, Qatar!in reply to: London to Africa – airline recommendations29 Aug 2018
Whilst, no doubt the QR lounge in Doha is very well made, my experiences have been night and day. Literally.
On an evening arrival, the lounge is empty, easy to get showers, etc. If you land between 7a-10a however, it’s a fish market. We didn’t get any seating in the dining area upstairs, so the bartender had to pull up bar stools for us and we sat at the back of the bar (where the cutlery inventory, loading and refilling, etc all happens!). Add a 1hr wait to shower. They could build a few more showers in that feee space.in reply to: Finnair or Qatar21 Aug 2018
