Air China have some great value Ex EU deals to Australia, New Zealand and the Far East from Germany but I would suggest making sure you know what you are getting for your money. I recommend doing some research first by reading a few reviews online. Skytrax only award them 3 out of 5 for their business class compared with Qatar’s score of 5. They are part of Star Alliance, however, if you wanted to earn some miles.
They do have some decent flat seats but they are in a 2-2-2 configuration on the B777 which you can see in this video. The slight staggering of the B777 seats does make it slightly easier for aisle access as I found out when I flew in these seats on AA transcontinental business class this year. The B777 is used on the London and Germany to Beijing routes as well as to Sydney.
Their B787 is used on the Auckland route.
