Well, I would still choose AY biz even with the old seats just because of the legroom and opportunity to sleep better. And for the biz class SFML seafood meal that AY does better than anyone else.

But as for economy I have to concur. AY longhaul Y seems to be more geared towards "once a year package tour" tourists than frequent flyers. The roomy bulkheads that one can fairly easy get as an AY "elite" were a slight escape but now they have been sacrificed too in the latest cost cutting round.

And AY longhaul Y meals are lower in quantity and quality than what Dragonair serves on the Shanghai - Hongkong hops in economy.
