IM going to England Feb 25 and I don't know what I should take. Or if I should land at LGW or LHR. I am leaning tord AA because they go nonstop from ORD right into LHR I could also connect through RDU, or DFW into LGW. They are all on 777 how are American`s 777s? I also want to go KLM because I belong to Northwest Worldperks and want all the miles I can get. If I go KLM I would go through AMS. What does KLM bring to ORD and from AMS to LHR? Thanks

If you're flying out of ORD, United also flies into LHR. 777 service, maybe even a 744.
Depends really on which mileage program you belong to, or what other criteria you're using to make your decision. You're lucky in one regard, and that your trip will be in the winter, so airlines will be offering great deals to get you to fly with them. Check the airline websites first...a lot of times you can get a great package deal, and bonus miles for doing so.
I don't know if there is a significant price difference flying into LHR vs. LGW, but a host of travel websites can answer that for you.
Or there's flights to Heathrow, which is slightly out of the city but can be accessed easily by underground (in that case not so easily ) or Busses. There is more choice into Heathrow and if you're more of a jet fan then most flights into Heathrow are operated by B737's:

Isn't KLM getting rid of their 743`s by the end of the year? Is it possible that I could get on a KLM MD-11? It looks like AA is the cheapest($330.60) into LHR. But im still thinking about going through RDU (flight 174 to LGW I think) Is that flight ever full?

Well, it's a long trip, so if want those miles: if gatwick is the best place to arrive based on where you're staying, take NW thru DTW, DL thru CVG, or CO thru EWR. For Heathrow or London City, take KLM.
