Does Qantas have lie-flat seats in B to SYD from USA?

I was looking on SeatGuru and am confised. Looks like not all Qantas 747s have lie-flat seats in business. Is that right?

If so, does anyone know if the routes to SYD frmo the USA (e.g., LAX-SYD) have the planse with lie-flat seats?

I am considering using all my AA miles to get a business seat and only would do that if I knew I'd get lie-flat. (If I go on UA, they do fly with lie-flat seats.)

Thanks.

that seems to be the case.

a report i read late last year said that the 747s from DFW to SYD (via BNE) didn't but were in the process of being upgraded.

those from LAX to SYD did.

best to call qantas i think for clarification and/or update

Not only flat bed but on the A380. Best Business Class flight we have ever had! Not sure, however, if all their flights SYD-LAX are A380s. You would need to check with Qantas.

Hi,

As mentioned by eva the A380 from LAX to SYD have flat beds & they are fab !!

You need to check on the webside to see which plane is flying... . Download the one world program & put in LAX to SYD it will give you the timetable & plane flying the route at the bottom of page.

Every Qantas B Class flight I have had in 747 or A330 aircraft have had lie flat seats. If I recall correctly the 767's on the Honolulu service did not.

I would think that all of the LAX flights did.

Depends on your definition of Lie flat

Some of the 747s don't have completely felt they have an incline unless they have been refitted. We had a flight to Japan last year with the old marc newsons, the day before had been the "old non lie flats" so it depends on the aircraft in use.

To be sure make the booking for the A380. it definitely has lie flats

I also agree with G/W most 747's don't have the FULL flat beds just the half reclining ones which can also be comfortable...
