Thanks for raising this. I looked into this again and found a new and probably more reliable source (Business Traveller) who state:

AIRCRAFT TYPE B787-9
CONFIGURATION 1-2-1
SEAT WIDTH 22.5in/57cm, 38in/97cm when flat
SEAT RECLINE 180 degrees
BED LENGTH 78in/198cm

yes it is bigger than 73 inches and I would think the same as the other BA F seats at 78 inches.

what about Cathay Dragon?Is it officially Oneworld as I'm not sure as always book the CX flight number? They use the CX J seat just like AA does on its 321s

Donít believe KA operates any long haul routes (is explicitly a regional carrier unless Iím mistaken).

Can anyone confirm whether JAL's new A350s will have first class? If so, an update is due soon!

A small, but for some an important, addendum re the 'withdrawn' First on MH.

The cabin is re-named Business Suite, but tickets are booked in F and A fare classes. Earnings to FFPs are therefore the same as before the name change. Food, beverages and service are also of the same quality, on par with (or even better than) other OW F products.
