I am in the process of rebooking a trip for 5 of us as above...my son was injured and we had to cancel our trip for next weekend (thank goodnes for trip insurance!)
Now that I have been reading this forum a bit more, I wanted to check to see if anyone had any general advice before I choose. We are planning to go mid-Aptil.
We have to travel economy, and were originally booked on BA through LHR both ways. The same route is available, slightly different times of course which is fine. (American also offers this a codeshare, I know it's the BA flights). Lufthansa has a route through Munich (offered by United as well). Layover times are smilar. Then there are random flights such as Aer Lingus through Dublin. (with an 8 hr layover!)
We don't fly enough to be worried about which airline/frequent flyer program...I'll choose based on carry on baggage limits and AVOD, and fares of course, but fares are all within $70 of eachother. BA seems to have a generous carryon limit, and we're trying to go with no checked bags (as opposed to for example Swiss which seems like a very much smaller size!) I *think* BA has AVOD even in economy where Lufthansa doesn't?
Before we book I just wanted to check if there's any wisdom re:"comfort" in economy (ha I know that's impossible), service staff, aircraft, food (!) etc. I know many people here fly business/premium economy at least but we just can't.
Thanks for any advice if you've got it.
