Which Sky Team/One World airline offers easiest premium tier benefits?

I'm Diamond Asiana of Star Alliance, which is SA Gold. I'm considering an airline of Sky Team to park my mileage since Asiana will be gone. Which Sky Team/One World airline should I choose to fly from LAX to Asia that is easiest to climb the tier ladder as Asiana Diamond tier? TIA.

What is your travel profile over a say a year? One LAX-Asia flight is not a good basis to select a new ffp.
Which airlines fly to your destinations?
Objectives from a ffp?

i fly a few times a year from/to LAX to/from SNA, SIN. I've been with Asiana. Objective is to get benefits like extra bgs and lounge visits, just like what Star Alliance Diamond tier currently offers.

What class of travel?
The USA airlines AA/UA/DL revenue based and different rules for other airline flights. So getting status can be hard.

For those you will need mid-top tier status. You could try for another Star alliance ffp.

To fly LAX-SIN on SkyTeam, the main routes would be either to connect onto KE at ICN or to MU at PVG (pre-COVID-19 of course). Some here like China Air, based in Taiwan, too, but their routes are somewhat more limited.
