If your talking about cabin atmopshere and not so much about the service I would say Southwest has the most comfortable cabin. I flew JAL once and eventhough the service was special, the seats and cabin environment wasn't good. I have no idea about SE Asian airlines or Quatar Airways and such but on this side of the world, I think United has a good overall Y class.

Long haul my favourite is NZ, simply because of the 34"seat pitch. In addition, service is always friendly, and cabin very comfortable and pleasant. Once they have refitted the complete fleet with PTV they will be perfect.
However, I was also very happy with CX and BA on all their long haul flights, and in 2 weeks I get to try SQ again on 4 sectors...
LH was always nice as well, even without PTV (just as NZ). I like the clean modern cabin on LH, and - against their reputation - never had an unfriendly flight attendant.
Never was happy with QF really, but that was years ago, and I'd love to give them a try again

From my mostly domestic U.S. experience:
1. AA (more room throughout coach- those extra inches are heaven)
2. WN (on short hauls--comfortable seats, and if you can get near the front of the plane it means you're quickly off at your destination)
3. UA economy plus (again, the extra room)
4. VS (the best trans-atlantic service I have experienced, and they put me and my wife in the back of the plane where the seating is 2-4-2, and we got the 2 by the window)
