Flying to Los Angeles, Dallas/Fort Worth, Dubai, London and seasonally to Hong Kong is the Qantas Airbus A380: equipped with fully-flat beds for business class passengers along the upper deck.
But not every business seat is created equal: some are better for working, others for uninterrupted sleep and also those for families travelling together.
Whatever your circumstances, here's what you'll find on the Qantas Airbus A380 and our top picks for each type of traveller.
Qantas Airbus A380 business class
Spanning 11 rows on the superjumbo's upper deck, Qantas' business class seats are arranged in a 2-2-2 layout.
There's a small cluster of three rows at the front, followed by the gallery and toilets, then eight more rows.

That's less favourable than Qantas' newer A330 Business Suites which provide direct aisle access for all, but there are still some sweet spots throughout the cabin.
Rows 11-13: These are usually reserved for Qantas' Platinum-grade frequent flyers until close to departure, and are your best bet for privacy and a good night's sleep. Other passengers pass through the aisles here only when they need to visit the lounge at the very front, which from our experience is seldom used on overnight flights.
(If noise from the lounge is a concern, get a seat on the left side of these rows.)
You're also somewhat insulated from the bassinet seats further back thanks to galleys and restrooms in between, although lighter sleepers should opt for row 12 to avoid any noise from the restrooms behind, or any talking from the lounge in front.
Row 15: Next back, check to see if seats in row 15 are free – there's no centre pair here, so these seats can feel a touch more private. But if noise from the galley or the chance of a baby nearby is a concern, keep on walking.
Rows 18-19: Smack bang in the middle of the main business class cabin, these seats are as far away as you can get from the forward business lavatories, galleys and bassinets before approaching those at the rear, and being equidistant from the bathrooms means you're less likely to have people walking past your seats in the aisle.
Any E or F seat: A downside of the 2-2-2 layout is that most passengers need to hop over somebody to reach the aisle or must be hopped over themselves, but the seats in the centre E & F pair don't have this problem as there's an aisle on either side.
Extra storage? A & K seats: Qantas' second-generation Skybeds don't offer much by way of in-seat storage, so if you're armed with a laptop bag and want easy access to it throughout the flight, pick a window seat as these boast space-saving side bins that are perfect for this – except in row 20.
