Last summer I flew FCO-LAX on AZ. I was very sceptical at first particularly because the flight was going to be re3ally long (over 12 hours) but I must say I was positively impressed by them. Food was pretty good, service was solid, the seat was relatively comfortable and the IFE was just OK. To give you a better idea, this flight passed faster and was somehow more enjoyable than my return flight between SFO and CDG on AF A380. I would not hesitate to use AZ again...

Quoting 330lover (Reply 3): Anyone experienced Premium Economy on AZ as well? How is that?
Thanks for the link to my report !
I did see the seats in Premium Y when I flew and they looked very comfortable almost like an old business class seat. They are in a cabin of their own and should have nice meals as well. I think configuration may be 2-3-2 or possibly 2-4-2.
You should have a great trip; both Buenos Aires and Rio De Janeiro will be great cities to visit. Flights should be nice.
Always good to not have to high expectations and be positively surprised
Need a Boeing 777 Firing Order....Further to fly....LX and LH 777s

On the GIG-FCO route, it's a 330. I read in another topic that AZ has 2 different configs on this type: the old Air One (ex Etihad) birds and the newly delivered ones.
Which one is mainly used for Rio?
Thanks for the info.

Quoting 330lover (Thread starter): For our upcoming trip to South America, we decided to try Alitalia. Fare was attractive being travel agent and we have never flown them longhaul.
Quoting 330lover (Reply 6): Ok, decided.
In the end, we opted for Air France
So you're quite undecided it seems... I posted a recent tripreport including the A330-200 to give you a bit over a view but there is no need. Though I would fee that AZ Y on the A330 is more comfortable then on any AF longhaul.
