Your SOL with OZ, but call either UA or the specific airline for your PNR, and you should be able to select both seats and kosher food for TG, CX, and ANA.

Then I'd go with whatever route is more convenient, assuming, of course, a fully enclosed suite doesn't nudge the decision to OZ.
ANA is slightly more convenient but inclined towards OZ for the large screen, and of course ICN beats the cr@p out of NRT

ill let you know after my trip
I'm flying long before that

sorry cant really help you than. from my research of the two OZ sounds better though. not sure how great a large screen is when you consider their mediocre selection of english movies

TG is notorious for playing plane bingo.

SQ FAs make you feel special.
Truth is that they did in R, J, and Y.
They're more awesome in Y than many J/F FAs.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Emirates because of the internet, bar, and air conditioning vents.

Almost every airline out of JFK serves Bornstein.

Other places they serve Hermolis.
