Noticed that u only wrote wide-body options, what about for domestic service, what would folks here think rates better than others?

My top would be:
B6 A320
DL B757 t.c.
UA B757 p.s.
VX A320
AA B767
767 = wide body
and im trying to figure out how that is on the bottom of your list, was it that bad?

No AVOD, like almost all other transcons have, and i found the seats very uncomfortable.

My best experience so far has been with ba 747 (new first)  lhr to nyc.
Starting with the cr private cabana and glenlivet 21 with some good kosher food on to the spa and then onto the plane where the seat is made into a really comfortable bed I don't recall sleeping on any other trip more than on this flight

How much can you sleep on a 6 hour flight....

BA new F is nicer than 9W?

tbh I slept more than I sleep usually on a 10-12 hr flight (I almost never really sleep on board)
What is 9w?

I have flown jet airways once in f but if I remember correctly I couldn't handle the smell on board (although I'm extremely sensitive to smells)

1.
SQ 380>CX 747: Service. "Coolness" factor of being in a couples suite.
CX 747>SQ 380: Seat comfort. Bed comfort. Nose of the plane seating. Pajamas. Scotch.

2. 
AA 777 F makes it into a bed for you, gives pajamas, and you can dine together. CX does not.
Both were lie-flat.

3.
US service and food just stinks.  However if you are traveling alone you'll want US.  My rankings are all as a couple.
Lucky on the SQuite:

"The seat felt a bit like a dentist’s chair and I didn’t actually find it great for lounging. The issue is that it only reclines very little, and if you want to put it in the bed position you have to flip the back over."

Which part of that CX doesn't do?

AA F on the (old?) 777 > CX J 777? (Was that even lie-flat?)

Asiana.

How can you even compare a US airlines business (and even F) to an Asian carrier's first?

Sure. And depending on your route and date, you may be lucky enough to fly their new Suite product on the 777.

Nope, they're actually installing then on 772s so you may get lucky!
