I'd pay the extra $200 any day to fly KE economy versus competition. Just for consistent service, amenities and leg room. Especially on such a long flight!

When I travelled alone in the A380, the bar wasn't such a highlight, IMO (I'd rather have a drink at my seat... :) ). Might be nice when travelling with someone else...

I'd say that a direct (nonstop) flight is a luxury in itself. But that's just me :)
