ATL to SYD/MEL Business Class?

I will be using Delta Skymiles to fly Business but other than Delta which is so difficult to find FF seats, what other airline has favorable business class seats to MEL using miles.

To MEL, you'd be looking at United, Qantas, Air New Zealand.

VA also operate Business class a few times per week and codeshare with DL as well. So you can accrue points.

They do have a fully lie flat bed etc as well.

For business class, I would try to fly Qantas (direct) or Air New Zealand (if they operate a widebody between NZ and AU).

I flew to MEL from LAX in Business class with United. Seat 10A was great - forward facing beside galley. There was very little noise and none of the issues with other passengers facing you as in the front portion of the Business class cabin.

#3 you can get some 767/773 services from MEL-AKL-LAX with the business class product on board.

Have heard good news about NZ Business class also.

There is a good review from SYD-SFO in UA's Business class and it is the same aircraft also.

Are these Delta miles or some other program?

Virgin Australia direct from LAX to MEL would be your best choice or Air NZ via AKL
