International business class didn't used to mean a bed. But it the last few decades, it's been an arms race to have the nicest business class. It has gotten so nice that (a) most airlines have dropped first class because nobody could tell the difference between business and first and (b) there was too big of a gap between economy (which is still terrible) and business (which is ultra luxurious). To solve this problem, airlines introduced "premium economy", which is basically what business class used to be. It's only natural that the next step is to introduce beds into premium economy, rinse and repeat.
