Etihad A332 vs. Emirates 77W
Any thoughts on product comparison in J class? Price is about the same from DXB/AUH to JNB.

I personally would go for Etihad, due to the better hard product (guaranteed fully lie flat). Soft product for me is comparable in the air, better on the ground with EK.

Yep following on with Emirates better On Ground service, you get chauffeur services in both DXB and JNB but only AUH with Etihad, this may or may not be important to you but should be a factor. Also Emirates has a lounge in JNB.
Seat wise I havent tried the A332 J class, but the 77W of Etihad is one of the best J class seats out there. I think the A332 one is a little narrower.
