Quick survey I'd like to take. I'm flying CAI-NYC in two weeks for business, and I can take any flight I want. However, because my company contracts w/the USG, we're subject to the Fly America Act for USG employees and therefore I must take a U.S. carrier on the Europe-NYC part of the trip (can't do MS nonstop).
Taking flight schedules into account, I've narrowed down to two flights that I'll choose among. I'll first take KL from CAI, and then either CO or DL to EWR or JFK. They arrive a half hour apart.
Just wondering, what's the difference in service b/w a CO 777 or a DL 763 across the pond? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I prefer EWR, so I would go for CO. I have only flown CO and DL on domestic US flights, both are ok, but for some reason I liked CO better. CO seems to be more professional, but that was my personal experience.
I find EWR better than JFK. From EWR to NYC was IMO faster than from JFK.

Well, I don't know how much of a difference this makes to you, but all of CO's 767s have PTVs and 32" of pitch, whereas DL only has a main screen and 31" pitch, so I would say that you should go with CO.
