In Feb. I will be traveling to London from Phoenix, and I would like to fly into LHR, so that leaves me with NW/KL via MSP & AMS, AA via ORD, BA N/S, or UA via ORD. I have never flown long-haul with any of those carriers, so please share your experiences and recommendations.


Thanks

What class of travel are you looking at? If it is down the back you might want to break it up with a stop at ORD/MSP (as per your suggestion) although to be honest I'd say flying BA has to be a winner in my eyes in that it is non-stop!

I'd go NW/KL because it gives you 3 sectors, 3 take-offs and landings, 3 different a/c types, 4 airports. KLM is a great carrier (even if only the T7's have PTV's), plus you may get more points in the FFP as opposed to only 2 flights or non-stop.

Well if you want to have alot of fun than take KLM/NW sounds like fun AMS MSP and LHR. I have flown AA 777 international and it is great. Very nice aircraft. That would be my second choice. UA is also good because of channel 9! So hard decisions here. Have you ever been to any of these airports? Every flown KLM? Every flown a T7?

I would go with NW/KL. You can also fly into London City (LCY) on NW/KL for a similar price i think.

If I were you, I'd fly PHX-MEM-AMS-LCY-AMS-MEM-PHX, and get some of that good BBQ in MEM so you can akwardly avoid expelling noticable gas in the cabin.

I was also leaning toward NW and KL because I would fly a DC-10-30 from MSP to AMS, and then a KLM 767-300 into LHR. I dont really want to fly into London City because I would really like to see Heathrow.

There is a lot more to see at LHR for sure.

If you would like a DC-10 Trans-Atlantic, you can also go through MEM if that is convenient.

The A330's have PTV's, but the DC-10's do not.

Hope you have a great trip....I'm jealous.......

UAL to LHR was really good service in business class from IAD on the 747.
I also flew on UAL on the 747 from London to IAD in economy class. The food service was great we also got ice cream for dessert. The bad part is the 747 seating. There is no leg room in the UA 747's economy class along with no PTV just the old style TV monitors.

I had the chance to fly on a UAL 777 from IAD and in economy class each seat had PTV along with some leg room. If your going in economy class and flying UAL then try to get on a 777.

If you're flying in economy, because of the equiptment on those routes, I'd say BA.

I would take AA because they will still have the MRTC on their 777's. The 777's are last to get the MRTC out. But the MRTC is great on a long haul flight. So I would take AA, I know I am very redundant sorry about that, I just think AA is the best going to LHR.
