    I am contemplating an AA Explorer award. My original plan was to return
    DEL-(rj)-AMM-(rj)-ORD in J.
    An out of the box idea is to detour as
    DEL-(mh)-KUL-(mh)-LHR-(aa)-ORD also in J.

    The latter choice means flying 6K miles more and spending 20K AA miles more on the award. However, it will give an opportunity to fly A380 in J from KUL-LHR.

    Is the switch worth it? If you have experience with MH A380 J, I'd appreciate your thoughts.

    no experience but it does seem to be 180 degree flat/horizontal in 2x2x2 non-staggered. Seemed quite nice.

    rizwank: I'll definitely pm you with any specific questions that come to me, but if / when you have the experience, how does MH 380 J compare with JL J and CX J?

    I think the best analogy is the MH 380 J is along the lines of TK or KE 380 - traditional forward seating - each row aligned whereas CX is either reverse herring bone (similar to US and the new AA) or herring bone a la VS, NZ. JL has sloping flat beds in that traditional forward facing alignment but also now has introduced a new J which looks a bit like EK A380 - staggered, all forward facing, all direct aisle access and horizontal 180 degrees. There was a very good trip report on the Business Traveller UK site.
