Emirates 777-300ER business seats

A little help with this one would be greatly appreciated.

Can anyone help me with the business class seats on the Emirates 777-300ER please?

I have taken a look at their seatmaps and they show their business class seats on the A380 as Fully Flat – which to me would mean flat and parallel with the floor. By comparison, they list the business class seats on the 777-300ER as just Flat Bed. I am wondering if this means that they are still straight out flat but angled down towards the feet end.

Is this correct? Are the Flat Bed seats angled down? And, if so, how extreme is the angle? As we have a night flight, I really want to be able to sleep comfortably and not end up bunched up down the bottom of the seat.

I have tried calling Emirates, but all their operator did was read from their definition on their website which is pretty much inconclusive.

For a plane I find the seats quite comfortable, but - of course - they are not like your bed at home;-)

I find them a little uncomfortable as well much prefer the 380 seats for sleeping flat, however the 777 seats are wider.

I HATE these seats, I LOVE the A380 business seats but hate these, I just seem to slip down the seat, they are great for curling up and watching TV but not for sleeping!

Not as comfy as the A380 business seats.

Service is better on the 777-300ER though.

Likely due to fewer seats on 777s. The problem I have found with service on Emirates is inconsistency.

76 seats (380) and around 35 to 40 plus on the 777, the service is night and day. The service is indeed inconsistent and at times rather frustrating on the 380.
