Best First (or even Business) Class to/from US to Europe

Aside from Singapore's Suite going between FRA-JFK and perhaps Air France's La Premiere product; what are the most luxurious first class seats available to and from Europe to the United States?

Given that relativly few airlines now operate an F cabin your options are limited,

Also limited by your departure city and arrival destination.

And that's before you even enter the what defines 'most luxurious' debate

For business class then British Airways First is reckoned to be the best.

So there is AA, AF, BA, EK, LH, LX, SQ and UA to consider?

Business class on NZ's LAX to LHR route was pretty nice last year. As for "best", I haven't flown enough in J or F between the US and Europe to be able to have an opinion.

Much depends on the style of service you like and your F&B preferences. For example, some people like the young subservient FAs, while others prefer efficiency and still other customers want friendly service, etc.

I am assuming this is round trip.
If that is the case the Lufthansa first class terminal at Frankfurt airport is great
Therefore my vote is for LH first class US-FRA-US
I like German efficiency and order with a touch of superiority

I got lucky and did that once. (it as MUC) It was pretty sweet. I even got a car ride to the first class lounge when we arrived from Rome.

😂👌😭

Luxury differs for everyone. When I did this a few times a month, I just wanted the most comfortable bed w direct aisle access.
