Default Which airline has the best Economy Class?

As a passenger at almost 6' 2" in height, I find long-haul flying in Economy Class almost painful. What are your opinions on the best airline/s for Economy without going to the added expense of Business Class flying?

Flying to where in what circumstances? For me, JAL, with good seat pitch and fewer seats across, is a great option out of Austrlaia if onward connections work for you.

Paying for the extra legroom / bulkhead seats can be a better bet financially than Business Class . It depends on your budget and your travel plans .

Usually Asia or US. For domestic flights, I can usually handle the smaller size/space in Economy because flying time is reasonable, unless there's a decent discount in Business Class.

Having said that, so far I've only done a very small handful of Business Class flights.

As I get older, long-haul flying is getting more difficult for me.
