Malaysian Airlines or Qatar Airlines from London - Perth WA?

Hi I have the options using miles to book (both flights are business class)

Malaysian Airlines - London Heathrow to Amsterdam to KL to Perth

or

Qatar Airlines- London Heathrow to Abu Dhabi to Doha to Perth

Does anyone think that one airline is better than the other? No one flight has better connections times, so that's not a factor. I'm trying to book purely on the quality of the business class. I'd appreciate your comments.

Business class, I would go with Qatar Airways, but it will be a direct flight from Heathrow to Doha, not via Abu Dhabi.

No fully flat bed seats in Business between Kuala Lumpur and Perth - although for a 5 hour flight between Asia and Perth this might not be too important for you.

QR have been voted Worlds best Business class for the last 2 years. If you time the flights appropriately you'll be flying B777 all the way (or maybe a B787 out of LHR), a truly excellent experience in both the hard & soft products.

Agree with the above comment re: Abu Dhabi. QR fly via Doha so don't know why AUH would come into it. Also, it's only one stop vs 2.

Used both in Business and like others here would go for Qatar over Malaysia Airlines (or would it be with klm as they code share?)
