I flew on BR Elite Class from TPE to SIN RT. While the OP's review is pretty much spot on (except for the wines, I think BR knows what they are doing in the wine category as the ones I had were ones anybody could find in UA BF), I must add one thing: while the recline is suitable, the legrest is a joke for anybody taller than 5 ft 8 inches or 172 cm (that's a guess. I personally am 6 ft 1). There is no way the insufficient legrest could possibly induce sleep, rather it distracts from it.

I understand BR caters to an Asian crowd (I am Asian btw), but I find this part of the 777-300ER lacking, especially since BR is positioning it as a long-haul aircraft to all of their North American destinations. Sure it's a bonus for BR, as airlines with premium economy ie. UA do not even have a legrest but seriously, the legrest is just awful for tall people trying to relax or even sleep.
