If you can afford them go either Cathay Pacific or Singapore airlines. They will give you infinitely better service.

I would do Cathay as they are a HK carrier and so travel in and out with them will be smoother. Also you can check in in-town for your return flight. Not sure about the others as I always flew cathay when I lived there.

I flew United non-stop from Chicago. The flight was as comfortable as you could expect spending 18 hours in a metal tube.

Cathay....I do not know if British Airways does direct flights from HK to US but we flew with them to HK and it was fine, relatively cheap. But I have heard many good things from family who have recently flown Cathay.

Depends where you're flying from. I think Continental only goes there from Newark and possible Houston, United only goes there from Chicago & San Francisco, I think Cathay Pacific only goes from Chicago, New York & Vancouver.

If you can get Singapore or Cathay those are infinitely better airlines then Continental or Delta are, so I'd take either of those with the first choice being Singapore.
