As I flew last week, I found it interesting that I was on the same exact type of aircraft on 2 consecutive trans-Atlantic trips, yet I found the experience much more enjoyable on one airline then the other. And the seating layouts were the same too! (2x5x2) In my case, I found that I like the UA 772 much better then the AA 772.
However, there was 4.5 years between the 2 trips, so perhaps it was my perspective on the matter which changed my opinion.
Regardless... I was wondering if any of you have had the same experience? Have you been on the same type of aircraft on 2 airlines and liked them very differently, and what were the reasons why?

See Udo, everyone talks about MRTC on American, but to tell you the truth, I really didn't notice that much difference. Granted, I was in row 31, (directly behnd the emergency exit row), so perhaps that limited my legroom somewhat. Regardless though, the only AA a/c which I've noticed any additional room on was the S80/MD-83 between SEA & ORD.

I would go with BA's 772's any day over DL 772's, BA offering 4-classes, with FC being amazing and BA coach section 3x3x3 compared with Delta's awful 2x5x2. BA's 757's also seemed more comfortable than Delta's "bench seat" comfort (or lack of) coach seats.

I find Malev's 734 more comfortable than KLM's. It's been about 3 years since I last flew on these airlines but I remember being more comfortable (as comfortable as you can be in economy ) on a Malev's plane. The flight attendants are also extremely nice
