Inflight Experience / Seating Asiana vs korean air business class, out of Seattle

    I'm 6'3. The two airlines that fit my schedule/budget are Asiana and Korean Air. I would like to sleep during my flight. How is Korean Air vs Asiana in terms of flat bed, comfort and privacy. I see Asiana got revamped in 2015 but the middle seats look a little too close to each other. I can't find any info on the korean air 777s and if they've been "renewed: recently.

    I flew SFO-ICN-SGN a few weeks ago on KE in J. I'm only 5'9" but found plenty of length, it was the 773 with staggered seats. Windows provide more privacy and are a better experience than aisle IMHO. Seating is 2-2-2. the middle 2 are not staggered, so good for couples.
    One thing to think about is that ICN is still 6 hours from SGN. Westbound I've taken the midday flight from the west coast 3 times this and I've finally understood the issue for me is that I end up awake for most of the flat bed segment, then am most tired on the last 6 hr segment with only normal recline.

    However, the most recent trip, the ICN-SGN also had flat bed seats, so I was able to sleep 5 of the 6 hour flight.

    Never tried Asiana because must stay with Skyteam.
