Why KE A380 over 747-8?

I guess it depends on short or long haul.
for 6 hours or less i would choose the 747 but for the JFK-ICN flight i like to walk around and/or stand by the bar for bit to break up the flight so the A380 is really the winner. now that i think about it, its probably why i like it more then CX.

QR F > EY F??

I value the bar more than the privacy, so yes.  Also, we had a really fun flight crew and only two others in F.  I'm flying EY A380 later this year and am anticipating it topping the list.

it's crazy how the right flight crew can really change everything, especially when its a 14hr+ flight. CX is great, EY is great but I've had situations where the KAL crew really went above and beyond. eg. when boarding a flight out of ICN the purser asked if i was in the mood for anything to eat, and I replied that I was craving a Caesar Salad and if they have any salad that would be great.... right  before the doors shut I saw an out of breath Flight attendant run on board with a bag and laughed to myself how she must have been super late. It turns out the Purser sent her to the food court to get a Caesar salad for me. Never in a million years would i have expected that and I was embarrassed that they went through all the trouble. But it really shows a certain level of service that isn't as prevalent with other airlines. Of course EY is the best hard product, the international crew is great and they probably would have had a ceaser salad on board already but there is no way they would have done something like that.

sorry for the rant, i've been going to mainland china a lot lately and this is my only outlet for the nuances of F

I agree.  On QR F, the head FA hung out with us for hours, and when we told her we were spending most of our time in CNX she summoned an FA from economy who was from CNX.  She also used to work at the LM so she gave us a handwritten note to give the manager (we each got a nice corner suite but that may have been due to status.  We'll never know), and she wrote up an itinerary for us.

DL J A333
CX J B773
DL J 763

These were all pretty much the same IMO:
AC J A320
CM J B738
DL F B752
DL F B753
DL F MD88
DL F CRJ900

(Yes, I put CX J below DL J. I flew CX last week and was thoroughly underwhelmed.)

depends on new vs old DL J

Old DL J is below CX J especially the 2 configuration without aisle access

I don't think those have been installed anywhere yet.

Back in the day YX was Midwest Express. Sadly they don't exist anymore.
