SYD-CHC service in business class

I may be flying SYD-CHC in business class later this year...

What kind of service should I expect on this tag-on flight (departing SYD at 10.20a.m.)? Late breakfast or full lunch? Full beverage selection?
Is the flight usually on time or is it prone to delays?

The plane seems to have a 2-3-2 config. in C, so avoiding a seat in the center block obviously makes sense, any other seating advice?

Thanks in advance!

It is a breakfast service on this route

Don't know about beverages since the only thing I look for is orange juice; I haven't seen it being prone to delays, the connection time between it arriving from DXB and continuing onwards is not too tight

When I did this flight last year, it was a full lunch service in J. This also means that there is a full bar service available.

My flight was delayed around 45 mins. The flight is DXB-BKK-SYD-CHC, so delays are certainly possible.

The EK lounge in SYD lounge is great.

The F seat in the middle is a good seat to have, since you are the only passenger on that side served by the FA on that aisle, so s/he does not need to lean across you to serve someone else. If you are travelling alone, that is.

Thanks for all your replies! Seems like EK C offers a decent product on this route. Now I only need to find somebody with EK miles...and off I am.

We did the reverse flight CHC-SYD in biz a couple of years ago.

One of the best flights we've ever had.

The EK C product beats both the QF and NZ's C products by far on this route.

Good to hear that. Unfortunately I´m too cheap to pay >$1k for a 3h C flight. (and Y is almost as expensive on the date I need to fly) There´s no award availability on QF or NZ (in Y or C), while there´s plenty of award availability on EK which is why I´m looking into this option, all I need to do is figure out now is how to get some EK miles.
