I'm planning a trip from TUS to ROM this fall. It looks like my options are AA/SN (TUS-ORD-BRU-FCO M80/763/319) or BA (PHX-LHR-FCO 744/757), both coach. Any concrete preferences about service/equipment or general words of advice?

Have you also considered UA/LH for TUS - DEN - FRA - FCO ? A/c would be B735 / B744 / A320 in October, total travel time 15h06m - slightly longer in November with the DEN-FRA-leg flown by a A346 then (winter schedule) ...

BA from PHX would require only 1 transfer, but that one would be in LHR (something I personally would not recommend unless you have plenty of time).
Also you would have to drive up north to PHX from Tucson adding 1.5-2h to your total travel time - personally I love to fly into and out of TUS as it is a very easily to navigate airport and I like the people´s attire.

AA (or UA/LH) via ORD: I would prefer to connect in DEN !

Have fun,

PHX-LHR is operated by a 747, something that is important to a lot of people here  Wink

I wouldn't be too fussed about LHR, if it is one connection in LHR vs two elsewhere I'd still go with BA. The PHX flight gets in around 1pm which is a quiet time for international arrivals in Terminal 4.

I'm biased as a predominantly BA flyer but think that in coach it is all much of a muchness either way, only when you get to premium cabins is it worthwhile swapping airlines/routes for a better product.

Consider this.....I believe only a few of AAs are equipped with PTVs on Coach...as compared to the B744 which is equipped with PTV...

IMO, I would choose BA...I donno maybe it's because I always fly AA....you have to think about that what are your chances of flying either airline again?



ROLL TIDE!!!

Just to promote LH/UA Big grin : With a morning departure from FCO to FRA (for connection to DEN & TUS) you could get a A300-600 plus a CRJ700 for DEN-TUS ...

Yeah you won't get a PTV on the 763 (don't know if you care or not) but the reason I would go on BA is that you'll have RB211s all the way! 744 and the increasingly hard to get BA 752. Go with that for sure. Better service and fewer stops as well. Would be a no brainer for me.

Edit: grammar
