One was comfortable, (EVA) the second one was brutal due to the cabin fittings (some strange layout Delta had in business in some sort of herringbone pattern). The third was wonderful, quiet, smooth. The filthy and worn interior subtracted from an otherwise fine flight.. (BA)
At the opposite end is the 777. They've been rattletraps, loud, and made odd noises on every one in which I rode, regardless of airline. EVA, China Southern, and one other. I forget who.
I've not had the pleasure of flying the 787 or the 350.

However I don’t particularly enjoy travelling on widebodies because, as someone who usually travels in Y there are just too many people and I find them a bit overwhelming. I therefore would probably rank the 767 as my favourite widebody purely because it is not very wide.
I look forward in the future to using the A321XLR for at least some of my long(ish) haul flying

I was fine with the 3-3-3 on both of my 787 flights, although I do prefer when there's just 2 seats beside the window and aisle. 2-3-2 like on the 767 would be great. 2-4-2 is good, too.

Comfort, the 787 or the 767 would be at the top for obvious reasons.
Capabilities and versatility, the 777 series.
Looks, the 747, or L1011.
Overall? Maybe the 777. The big twin! Only wish airlines didn’t learn about 3-4-3. Unless that extra column meant a slight decrease in ticket price long-term.
