I am planning a trip to Shannon Ireland and I have two different options and I want to know which one will probably be better.
PHX-LAX,JFK,O'Hare, Boston,etc. (Any airline)
Then to Shannon on Aer Lingus
PHX-LHR British Airways
LHR-Shannon (any airline)

I've got a couple of thoughts.
1) If you are travelling First class, take BA through LHR.
2) If you are travelling business class fly EI through LAX. It's outstanding!
3) Flying coach. I'd take BA unless you really care about the miles. Why? Because that way, on the way home, when you are really tired, you don't have to change planes towards the end. You change planes "up front" at Heathrow, then settle in for the long haul home.

Just another option, and also a plug for my hometown/hometown airline, but you could fly USAirways PHX-PHL-SNN. Flying their 767's across the pond isn't the greatest, but it sure beats CO's 757's and will get you lots of Star miles if your interested.
