The new NH Square seats are really the old NH seats with wood around them. VERY VERY VERY comfortable, though! Easy to fall asleep in these, and plenty of room.

I would, too (full disclosure: I've never flown OZ and based on my great experiences with NH, will take them over OZ due to my experience and admitted bias).

Your summary of NH was 100% right on, littlevoices; it sort of made me feel I was in NH first!!
At least from the pictures, much better than SQ's 77W..

Apparently as far as seats are, nothing on their 777s.. Only on the 744.

I can always do OZ on another RTW I guess! Once SQ's 744 is out..

Hmm.. Thanks for the suggestion!

Good choice. I would take NH F over OZ F. Especially since you will be going to JFK in the new suites.

Well, I hope it is indeed! I have high expectancies after knowing what to expect!

Nh f+ua f or oz f+tg j

I have a similar question. I can see an award seat avalilable on NH F LAX-NRT connecting on UA F within Asia or I could fly OZ F LAX-ICN connecting on TG J.

I really don't want to fly UA even though it's UA F however I want to try NH F.

I haven't flown OZ F either which connects to TG J.

Really confused.

What option would you take?

In my opinion it depends where you go. I assume the TG flight will be on regional C. I dislike UA as much as you, but for another 5 or 6 hours i still prefer UA F over TG regional C.

Both NRT or ICN would be only connecting cities (no overnights). I have read a lot on UA's F hard product.

How are the UA FA's in F on intra-asia routes, are they US based crew?

From JFK: Asiana F vs. ANA F.

That would be OZ 21 (JFK-ICN) vs. NH 9 (JFK-NRT). It looks like NH has the superior hard product, while OZ has the better service, but I'll defer to you guys.

You can find lots of information on this board. I recommend a search.
In my opinion the overall experience is similar. I would base my decision on where i actually want to go, connection time, equipment on the connecting flight etc.

I've done both and I wouldn't say that OZ has better service.

I believe both are excellent and would not hesitate to take either. Having said that, I consider NH slightly better in every respect, so everything else being equal (destination, connections, timing, etc.), I would definitely choose NH.

In fact, I have an OZ F reservation for an upcoming award trip. As connections for this trip are comparable, if a NH F seat opens up between now and then, I will change to NH.

This should just have been found with a simple search, same route, same carriers, comprehensively answered;

OZ F or NH F, ICN/NRT to JFK

The only problem is you lose the advantage of the home carriers lounge, but since neither is hugely impressive (and they probably share the same lounge in JFK) its a non-issue.

NH slightly better in every espect ? I don't think so. I had done both.

OZ has better amenity kit (bvlgari), what NH has ?

OZ has PJ you keep, can you do that on NH ?

OZ has thank you gift end of flight, what does NH give you ?

It is all about if one likes Korean or Japanese food better. However, I do give an edge on NH's mid-flight snack selection.

I'll give you that -- if one is looking for souvenirs, OZ has the advantage. (Those PJs, while horrible to sleep in, made a great Halloween costume!)

For a flight experience, I stick with NH in all important respects -- better seat, better service, better food, better entertainment, better overall atmosphere.

Unless, I suspect, one is Korean.

But as I said, I find both products to be excellent and would not hesitate for a moment to fly either. The differences are small. Unless you want souvenirs -- then it's OZ all the way!
