Stair stepped Edge loop to Strait Edge loop

Hello everyone,

I am in a situation where I am on the back side of an extremely complex model completing my edge flow. Now I am working on a slopped surface. So completing these edge loops I am getting essentially stair stepped edge loops. I was wondering if anyone knew how to average a segment of edges. I can just delete the edges then use split poly to fill the gap, but since I have so many edges, and their are extremely close together I was wondering if any one could answer my question. I have a before and after photo.

So essential I have this

and I want this, with one button.

I am aware this is modeling and nothing is as simple as one button, but I just figured with how simple I have found moving within the X,Y,Z axis in a strait line, that there has to be something to simplify the traveling in a diagonial direction.

Thanks in Advance!
