I’d go KLM, but mainly because I’m addicted to the little ceramic houses they give away in transcontinental business class. You’d net four!

I'd avoid Saudia if you have a choice.

DL DM (charter) 1.7+MM, A3 *A Gold, SPG Plat, Marriott Plat Premier, Hyatt Diamond (new from SMD3), LHW LC Access, Raffles Ambassador, ICI (Imperial Club International), Hertz #1 Gold, dirt with Hilton (former Gold), Omni, Loews, CO/UA, AA, etc., former NW PE ~1.3MM, TWA ~1.4MM

No alcohol on Saudia. Because of the sliding scale to match demand, avoid redeeming on any DL flights. Go with partner carriers. Because BKK and SIN are 12 time zones from YYZ, consider going through Europe. AF, KL and SU have 1 daily flight and you'll have a long layover in Europe to rest and use the lounge for showers and nap. If you go thru northern Asia, the hubs provide 2-3 daily flights to SEAsia and you won't be able to take advantage of a long layover.

I hope you have a lot of miles because by all appearance DL just increased its International business class miles awards by over 20% in many cases.

Just a note to update that the reported recent increase in DL awards was glitch in the booking engine which showed lowest level Transatlantic awards (one way) to be 86k miles. As of now they still remain at 70 k miles.
