Air New Zealand
I am not an experienced world traveler. The only international carrier I have flown is Air New Zealand. However, I am still going to go out on a limb and say that Air New Zealand is super posh. I thought it was pretty fancy when we flew to Samoa two years ago and it has only gotten nicer. I am miserable on airplane seats. They are all built for someone taller than me, but I was able to get relatively comfortable on the Air New Zealand seats and sleep some on the way home. There was a TV in the back of the seat in front of me with movies, music, games, audio books. I tried to watch Funny People (does not appear to be funny) and ended up watching He's Not That Into You. The food is also pretty amazing. I had oven roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and zucchini, plus a side salad and dessert. Breakfast was pancakes with blueberries! Berries!
There was quite a bit of turbulence on the trip, which I found a little unsettling. Visions of plummeting to the ocean danced in me head. Plummet, we did not. Instead we landed safely in America.
