I guess I was thinking of EY apartments, UA polaris, and SQ suites and DL suite to a lesser extent. EK is a totally different ball game though with over 100 77W, it's not really a fair comparison when they're basically replacing the entire 777 fleet with the 777X and progressively returning them the lessor, it's really hard to justify the cost for a few more years. What is impressive to me is how quickly QR is adding Q suites and refurbing airframes although im not sure if they plan on keeping their 77W for a while yet.
