I made my seat into a bed once we left Bangkok, there was a seat liner, real pillows and a duvet to ensure comfort and I slept until woken as we approached Sydney.
Coming home we were on the A380 all the way from Auckland -Sydney-Dubai-Manchester. This flight was full all the way home. As well as the usual goodies we were given an Emirates bag to hold the towel, PJ's, slippers, amenity bag etc. I had the best breakfast I have ever had on a flight as we came into Dubai.
So! to compare the aircraft, well in First Class the cabins and seats of both are fitted out in the same way, with First Class Suites in both aircraft, you really can not tell the difference. The A380 has more seats than the 777. On the A380 you do have the use of the bar and the Bathroom with the shower. But the experience was fantastic on both aircraft and what I liked best was having a china mug of real tea whenever I wanted it! Now its back in Economy for me!
