ANA’s new business class offering, then Singapore airlines, then I would splurge for Lufthansa in F.

like

I would rank as follows:
1. ANA new biz (only new their old seat is kinda disappointing)
2. EVA (fantastic product all around)
3. Turkish/Austrian (amazing food, eh seat)
4. United (solid seat, eh service)
5. Lufthansa (definitely try to avoid)

like

Yes for sure. Any long-haul product without direct aisle access from all seats should be avoided.

Turkish airlines Business class is beautiful and the new airport and lounge in Istanbul are sweeeet

like

In terms of hard product, only their new biz class is competitive, and it's probably only on <5 routes

Singapore all the way. Also heard good things about EVA Air’s business class

Avianca business on their wide bodies is low key amazing. Super spacious and probably the most comfortable seat I’ve had in a while. Also gets you access to all of Latin America
