Help us get to Shanghai for cheap!

Boyfriend and I are flying out to Shanghai from New York City sometime late September or October. Kayak
's cheapest flights are on: China Eastern Airlines, Air China, Delta, and on occasion, Continental. Reviews for all seem pretty bleak. :( It's a good 14-20 hour flight; please help: Which airline is the best of the worst?

Other random facts: I am 5'10" tall so being cramped for half a day in the air isn't preferable. On the other hand, perhaps it might be bearable with decent entertainment options? We aren't staying in Shanghai long and I've read horror stories about certain airlines being notorious for having delays. That would be the absolute worst situation.
I think we're hoping for around a grand or less round-trip, after taxes and fees. Any tips on how to get cheaper flights (such as ideal travel dates) also definitely welcomed. :)
