Emirates deep-recline vs sleeperette

I’m about to book Business Class on Emirates – Venice to Dubai. Depending on which flight I choose, it seems I will have either a ‘deep recline seat’ or a ‘sleeperette’. Just wondering which would be the better choice as I can’t seem to get a clear indication of what each seat is like. I understand that neither provides a completely lie-flat bed in its recline position, but I am wondering how each would compare with a Qantas Premium Economy seat, for example (which I have had recent experience with). If anyone could help me I would really appreciate it.

I wonder if the folks at flyertalk or milepoint might have something in their frequent flier forums? Or this site also seems to link to a number of firsthand reviews: http://www.airlinequality.com/main/forum.htm

"Deep recline" is certainly going to be angled, and may even be a cradle seat.

"Sleeperette" may be flat lying... but be careful... flat *does not* equate to horizontal. From the description on their website, I would interpret sleeperette to mean high recline, but angled, as they distinguish sleeperette from their lay-flat product.

Amazing... 4 active threads in one day! This forum is really kicking it!

I tend to avoid any specific airline's language and stick to a common one. seatguru.com/airlines/…information.php might help you...
