*A ORD-BKK J Help

So I'm looking for the best J products from ORD-BKK
My priority is food (don't care about alcoholic drinks), then seat (more like sleeping quality). Don't care about layover city, or ground service.

My choices are:
ORD-EWR-CDG-BKK: UA (77E)/TG (380)
ORD-IST-BKK: TK (77E)
ORD-TPE-BKK: BR (77E)
ORD-HND-BKK: (NH 77E/788)
ORD-IAD-ARN-BKK: SK (330)/TG (77E)

thanks for all in put!

I recommend CX ORD-HKG-BKK. Fastest route and HKG airport is very efficient... Next up would be via HND or NRT on NH/JL/UA/AA. Transiting via Mainland China is a horror and ICN is a little backtracking but Korean/Asiana have a great product. BR via TPE is a great choice as well but may take a little longer due to Taiwanese airlines being prohibited from using Mainland China airspace on the trans-Polar route. Flying via Europe/Middle East adds a few hours to the journey and its already a very long trip...

As TravelBuzz is for generic topics, we will move this over to the Star Alliance forum for further discussion. Thanks. /JY1024, TravelBuzz co-moderator

If you're really going to choose your routing based on food, then TK is the easy answer. Meal quality is truly outstanding.

From your list I'd say TK for food / seat followed by NH.
HN probably faster but lounge in IST is great, not just for food.

Cool. Can I ask which program you managed to score the SQ business class award through?
