I have a feeling their BS'ing for their own agenda (perhaps their commission is much larger on AI compared to other airlines).
the planes are neither new nor beautiful....but the ai business class experience is ok for the price you pay....i end up taking a few long haul business class flights on ai every year & while it has never been a great experience, it has never been bad as well....unfortunately i do not have any pictures to share but my most recent ai business class trip was just earlier this month & there was nothing wrong with it....

Though, what I'm hearing these days is the Gulf carriers (specifically Etihad) business class experience is sub-par.
where are you hearing that gulf carriers have sub-par business class????these carriers, specially etihad, have a very good business class product....
