Empty cabin FTW. Having this level of service in an empty cabin is... Euphoric.

Work hard, play hard. Motto to live by.

Not all of us can pull that off. Besides, I want Mrs. AJK to write it :)

CA J is not lie flat.

OK, if you say so.

PSA: Just in case anyone was misled by the above, the OP is not in fact correct, despite the misplaced confidence.

And I'll repeat: CA J is NOT lie flat on the route we were discussing.

I personally flew CA J ICN-PEK less than two months ago.

Did your excitement of proving me wrong lead you into a lie flat dream?

Then your bad luck continues. You apparently got TG'd on CA as there are a few TRs online showing and stating it's lie-flat.

The Chinese dishes at Dini's Kosher Restaurant in PEK are phenomenal--may be the best I've ever had.
