Premium Economy on Quantas vs. Business Class on Delta?

Jump to last reply

We have plenty of Alaska Airlines miles and British Airways Avios and would like to use them to book a flight to Australia in early 2015. I know I cannot book it until March ( for February 2015 travel) but t have been exploring our options ahead of time. Would love to fly business class on Qantas but I know those seats are nearly impossible to get. I do see quite a few seats in Premioum Economy if I look 11 months from now. I know those aren't flat bed seats like business class, but are they otherwise pretty nice for the Longhaul flight? We are slender and don't need wide seats but do like to recline as far as possible.

Or should we go with Business Class on Delta, which appears to be more readily available? One problem with Delta is that we cannot book one way at a time on the Alaska website, as we can withQantas. Also, . . . It's Delta. I have heard so many stories about poor customer service, delays, etc. on Delta. Is their business class product good enough to make up for these shortcomings?
