Might take a look at EVA. It's well reviewed and usually well priced.

 

Ha... beat me to it while I was typing....

Where you are going in the US makes a significant impact on fares

 

And there must be something different, since I always found Singapore Airlines to be the most expensive to the US.  You also might want to look at the connection times from SIG to BKK

 

I would check out Cathay Pacific since the troubles in Hong Kong has forced them to offer some good deals, worth a look

 

That being said, the only advantage of CP is the relatively short hop from HK to BKK.  And I thought the two times I used their premium economy it was a waste of money, but your mileage may vary

Just booked r/t to EWR (NY) on Singapore Airlines with premium economy for $1350. It was only a few hundred more than Cathay, Emirates and the same as United. Air China is NOT an option ever! To me that's a no brainer since Cathay, United and Emirates were economy fares.

"slightly" larger seat, with a "slightly" better incline

Depeding on which plane you get with Cathay the premium economy is nearly lay flat seats, totally worth the money.

Check ANA, they have specials now and then, as well as Delta whose co-share airline is Korean Air.

Oh how I miss the simple days of three seat offerings: 1st Class, Business Class, or Economy Class.  OR, on some flights simply Economy and 1st or Business Class.  OR, on a short trip in a small aircraft no different classes at all.    And don't get me started on the other flight options/charges regarding meals, baggage, etc.

Good choice and excellent non-choice.  No mainland Chinese airlines any time and not even because of the coronavirus risk.

Emirates has my vote.  I've been on economy, and business.... My experience has always been consistent in reliability and above average in service/support.
