For flights to the Far East I would definetely recommend Korean Air as first option. They offer very good and comfortable flights. Legroom is about 86 cm as I know (please correct me if it is not correct), so they usually offer more space than many other asian airlines. Crew works very professional and is doing everything to make your flights as comfortable as possible. They also very nice and kind.
The service on board also is very great. On flights from Germany to Europe they offer several warm meals and you can choose between western styled food and asian food. Specially I love to eat the Korean bibimbab, which really taste very delicious. (Usually I can't get enough from it!). Korean Air also got some rewards for their very good service.
On board they show several good films, news and often videos about the destination.
All in all to say, if I have the choice to fly Korean Air, for me I don't need business class, as their product is better in economy than on some airlines in business.
Safety has been improved a lot through the last few years and nowadays I would rate Korean Air to the safest airlines on this globe again.
Another good option for flying to the far east would be KLM. They also offer quite good service out of AMS, but seating arrangement is not that comfortable as on Korean Air flights. Crew is also very nice and kind.
So for me usually first option would be Korean Air and as another option KLM.
Not recommend I would my home carrier Lufthansa. They are quite often rude to the passengers, specially to foreigners, so truelly to say, even I am German, I usually try to avoid them.
Another airline which I usually try to avoid is Thai Airways. Their crew also very often very rude. Also seating arrangement on these flights are horrible, as you have very less space for your legs.
Anyway, whatever you choose...have a nice trip to the Far East !

Thanks KAL744! Good typs are always appreciated.... LH for me is great, anyways should be the best choice from Latin America to Europe, so often this means you stick to them. Korean is widely unknown here but your good description of them, makes it a choice to consider, Danke Schön!

The best Y class is definedtly Sinagpore and Cathay in terms of service. By far. SQ has the best IFE-krisworld is pretty much ahead of the pack in terms of entertainment options. Service on both consistently great.

Germany/France - NRT ~ I would recommend ANA. The food is excellent and service is wonderful. They are very punctual and the warm Japanese hospitality will make you feel special even if you are sitting in economy class.
ANA has good legroom and features AVOD.
Germany/France - HKG ~ I would recommend CX. They are always very friendly, and they try hard to please and it shows. The honor of being #1 airline according to skytrax says it all.

I totally agree with Llmamura!
I flew ANA LHR-NRT a few months ago in economy and they were excellent. The AVOD was so nice and I've never seen such a clean interior of an aircraft! The seats were decent and the crew was nice to me (always bring a small box of chocolates with you for your crew as a nice gesture... it will get you very far in life! Amazing what $3 worth of chocolate and a big smile will get you!)
I know their the underdog compared with Singapore, Cathay, Thai and Malaysian but they offer a great product and it's non-stop!
The debate continues... Starwood or Hyatt... which is better

AVOD - Just like what Qantas005 said, it lets you stop the movie and rewind or fastforward the movie or TV show. You can do the same for the CD audio also. It also has the Video game function that lets you choose from various games.
