Business/First Seats on 777

Hi - this is my first post in Continental forum. I plan on flying STL-DEL in may next year.

I have the option of flying Continental (STL-EWR-DEL and back) on the 777 from EWR -DEL in Business/First.

I have never flown continental in Bus/First and would like to hear from the wonderful experts on this forum about your experiences. We are 2 pax + infant. We will be using star alliance miles accrused in US Airways for 2 pax and I guess pay taxes for the infant ? (11 months at the time)

I have flown LX/LH business before and have enjoyed that. Can someone also compare the these options if you have experience on both (Swiss/Lufthansa/CO)

1) Move fast, low mileage award inventory may run out.
2) CO's fleet will be 100% flat bed by then, LH is slanted lie flat, LX is mixed. I haven't flown LX, but I sleep much better on the CO seat.

While UA has mostly eliminated Starnet blocking (google it to learn more), US has ramped it up - so if you see availability, book it ASAP (or at least get confirmation it exists)
