I know there are a gazzilion other choices, but I am narrowing it to these for a variety of reasons! And yes, I am aware of the 5th freedom SQ type flights!!

Timing is not an issue, and I am using miles. The BA flight would be into LCY, which intrigues me!

I've flown BA, LX, and VS before, and I would like something new. But if Iberia, KLM,and Finnair are well below par, I will cross them off my list.

Suggestions?

I guess AY would be new and exotic for you  

Finnair flies A333 to JFK, their newest 333's have fully flat seats in Business Class, similar to SWISS 333. Great when travelling alone especially, most of the window seats are individual.

Tried once:

Their older angled C-seats aren't bad either, both variants serve JFK.

Very easy transit for you on JFK-HEL-LHR, you don't even need to leave the non-Schengen terminal. As a bonus Finnair has a new long haul lounge and a Spa at HEL: http://media.finnair.com/spa/site/

Of the list you have put forward I could choose LX followed by BA. However, I would also consider CO with the new Business First seat (if thats an option to you), very comfortable, fully flat and excellent food


Next Flights: EI DUB-LHR A320, BA LHR-SFO B744, UA SFO-LAS A320, BA LAS-LHR B744, EI LHR-DUB A320

I bet KLM has the 'worst' C-class hence the middle seat in their B777-200ER and -300ER.

For the approach alone its got to be JFK - LCY on BA, then there's the rest of it - preflight dining at JFK to enable you to make best use of the flat bed, low passenger numbers helping with boarding and disembarkation, and to end up almost in the centre of London.

Take the merchant bankers route - you know it makes sense.

Thanks for the tips. I would really like the LCY option. No award seats on my date.

I am now holding a Finnair booking. Seat map shows old seats. Still worth it?
