Which airline from LHR to SFO for a child?

We will be travelling to California with our 7 year old granddaughter next year, cannot decide between BA & Virgin - any suggestions?

1. Re: Which airline from LHR to SFO for a child?

It's been a few years since we flew as a family and always used to choose Virgin. It was some how more fun.They had a good kids pack and movies etc. However Virgin has deteriorated seriously in the last ten years (in my opinion) so would find it hard to choose now. My wife and I (now without kids) prefer BA now.

So probably not much between them and I'd base it on costs and timings etc.

Would agree with post #1 - very little to choose between the two.

BA does fly from T5 which is streets ahead of T3 at LHR

If I was making the choice it would be based on costs and Dep / Arr flight times - T5 might just sway me over to BA though

I would pick whichever has the best price and schedule for your needs. The service levels of the major airlines are simply not that different to justify paying a lot extra or taking an inconvenient time.

Class of travel makes a big difference. In economy, they are going to be more similar than different. Look at pricing and schedule that best fit your needs.
