I´ve also flown in all four in in my opinion BA has the best service an domestic and international routes.
AF is also quite good, but on AF i had the luck to fly on 77W and this is really a great plane.
LH was a disappointment for me, I had big expectations to LH, because my dad is a loyal costumer, and not all have been fulfilled.
KL was nice, but not so good as BA or AF was.

I haven't tried KL yet, but of the others I'd say on board service is best on BA, then AF, followed by LH. From LAX, depending on the usual factors I often choose LH simply because connecting in LHR is a pain IMHO. Any connection in MUC is worth the slight downgrade in onboard service to me. I know you eliminated smaller carriers, but I choose LX whenever I have the chance. Nice aircraft, nice service, and ZRH is a treat relative to other hubs in Europe (and the US) with MUC being about equal in my mind.

This question is asked many times in this forum, but I think there is no answer to that. Some people like AF, others BA. KL and LH also have their fans. It's all about your personal preferences and what YOU think it's important. I flew many airlines (a.o. KL, AF, SN, IB, AZ, NW, DL, CO, WN and many others). I've had both good AND bad experiences with KL, just good experiences on NW (!!) and so on. One bad flight doesn't make an airline a BAD airline and a good flight doesn't necessarily mean that it's always good. I hope you get my point.

My list would be:
(I've never flowin KL in business class).
Off topic, however BA also gets criticism from myself regarding puntuality. I've flown LH on 14 flights this year and none have been more than 10 minutes late. I've flown BA756 about six times since they took the slot from Swiss and I have never arrived on time.

Interesting topic. I'm travelling ARN-ORD next summer on either KL, BA or AF.
I have tried KL and BA and liked them both, although BA gets a higher vote from me thanks to the PTV:s and the amenity kits. I liked KL's interior better though and transfering at AMS was nice and smooth.
How does AF's IFE compare to BA's on the CDG-ORD route?
