SQ old F or New J

If you had a choice between the old F seats (e.g. 747) or the new J seats (e.g. A340-500), from the West Coast to SIN which would you go with?

Thanks.

A lot of times there is a discrepency between fares you can find on US websites vs the UK or EU versions. I've found this on expedia.com as well as others. Technically if you reside in the UK you...

I actually have been a huge fan of the local specialty gifts . . . Sheraton CDG was a bottle of wine, Pulitzer in AMS was a blue delft set, Park Tower in London is a teddy bear.

As an EXP I've gotten an op upgrade from BA J to F LHR - DEL. It only happened once and I fly that route at least 20-30 times a year.

Got the upgrade on the JFK - BOM portion. Still waiting on the BOM - JFK part. Coach looks full (probably over booked). There appear to be 8 or so seats in B/E that are unassigned. Let's see what...

so CO considers its BizFirst to be higher than a B/E product. That seems to be fishy - it certainly is no First Class.

I think it would be very difficult for cross-upgrading to work. Firstly, the airlines calculate elite membership in different ways, with Delta (surprise, surprise) being the most restrictive. ...

Are AA's or UA's business class comparable to B/E? I guess what I really care about is comfort of the seat - meals, movies, etc are just icing on the cake. Espeically on a red-eye, I found the B/E...

I was just doing a check on this. It seems that we now have 3 JFK-LAX flights, with only the 3pm one being B/E. Of the return ones (of which the red-eye is still gone) only the 9am one is B/E. ...

AA has to be betting that there are AA FF who are willing to go thru the extra hassle to earn AA miles. They might be successful.

I found this out this weekend also. The current packs can be used, and standby is still allowed at peak times w/out a fee. It's too bad Delta is following USAirways on this one - the youth pack was...

I'm sorry, but this is pretty different from reducing the min mileage from 1,000 to 500. There is NO comparison. I won't be caught dead on a USAirways flight anymore.
