    If points are equal between programs what would be your preferred Business Class cabin to/from Europe? I thought of this question while I was looking at the video of the new Air France Cabin which will begin to be installed in June. I think it looks pretty good.

    The new AA 777-300ER cabin is pretty sweet, IMO.

    IMO any cabin with lie-flat beds.

    Could you post the video link please? I will applaud when they make that change. AF BC seats do not lie flat!

    Nice looking product. Too bad I have no ST miles!

    I would have been there too, until UA updated all BC seats to LHR. We have flown their lie-flats about 12x, and when all is said and done, I end up setting them up like the old non-lie-flat BC seats (though the old footrest is gone), so do not do full lie-flat.

    Now, GFC on the UA 747 has a different lie-flat, with a pad, turn-down service and I could sleep well in that pod. I have yet to really, really get comfortable in BC on the refurbished 777's, but that is just me.

    I also like the UA 777's from the old CO fleet, as their lie-flats do not have that 15 degree jag at the footwell - they are straight, and I like those more. I do have to fly out of IAH, rather than LAX, or SFO, but think that the design in those planes is better.

    US Airways Envoy Suites on their A330-200 and A330-300's....basically the same seat Cathay and American have installed in their business cabin. Very spacious, private, and comfortable.
