If money were not a concern, I would never, ever travel in the misery of First Class. I would buy a Gulfstream 550 and place an order for a 7E7.

If money were no concern, I'd do all of the above, plus fund a program to develop a suborbital hypersonic business jet, plus put a few billion into oddball research to make quantum teleportation a practical reality.

If money is no concern it is time to starting giving just enough of it away so that you respect what you have left.

That said, it is a personal judgment. I whine like a baby if I get stuck in J on a flight with no F so to me at least the value is there.

Regardless of what you read of SQ, it remains, in many peoples' opinion, one of the best airlines in the world (and yes, when an airline with that to live up to slips even a little, a lot of people do complain). CX is comparable, but both of them are on a whole other league than AA (or any other US airline, for that matter). If you haven't ever flown SQ, I suggest you give it a try and form your own opinion. Let us know how it goes!
