I voted for Lufthansa for the fact their service is amazing. I am surprised that COA is doing so well because in my opinion their business First product sucks in comparison to other airlines business class let alone the first class of most airlines. Lufthansa's new business class is much nicer than COA's business first IMO.

Virgin Upper Class is superb, although people say it is a combi first/business class. COA is also a combi, not first class, so you can't really compare it to a full first class airline. However, IMX it is very good quality - better than business class. After all, they've won numerous awards for it so I think you're in a minority there! BA's business class is somewhat poor compared to EK and CO.

In what respect? I've flown neither CO or EK but have hear and seen their seat and basically (that is what J is mostly about) and the EK seat doesn't hold a candle to NCW.
I voted BA in the survey, admitedly it is the only airline I have flown in F (and only done it six times so not a fair comparison) but having seen pictures / read trip reports / family experience I have made a reasonable choice. How CO is leading that poll ahead of the likes of SQ, CX and BA is astonishing! New EK F suite is pretty high up there but due to limited routes gets an honourable mention in this

"I have flown in F" - that's first class, not business class. I haven't flown BA first class, so I can't comment on that. All I can say is, compared to my biz class flights with EK and CO, BA ranks third. Seats and IFE are much of a muchness, but decent crews and good food improve the experience - something which IMX BA was lacking.
I actually found the EK seat to be very comfortable. So it's not lie flat, but I still managed to sleep - which is a rare occurence for me.
BTW I should have mentioned I'm talking about BA's non-lie-flat seats (haven't tried the newer ones), although the seat is only a part of the product.
