Both YVR-XMN and XMN-SYD seem to be operated by their new 787 (which even has a F cabin). Afaik the J cabin has fully flat seats in a 2-2-2 config; nothing overly exciting, but not too bad either.

Same price ex SEA, but requires double connect in China (Shenzen and Xiamen). Brutal overall trip time... But a decent fare.

Hi -

You actually have a 16 hour layover enroute to Sydney, provided you leave on the right days.

That said, I bought one of those over New Years. Cheap fare for a comfy seat that time of year, and you get an airport hotel room to relax in.

Good opportunity to explore the city and the surroundings? The Traditional Walled Villages (Tulous) of the Hakkas is about 3-4 hours away from Xiamen, many hotels can arrange a private car and chauffeur to the UNESCO sites.
