I agree, BA's old 747-200's were not the best. But they are all gone now and I just did a round trip SEA-LHR-SEA on the BA four class 747400.
The service and comfort was excellent, I highly recommend them. I did a FRA-YVR on LH (on the return they oversold the SFO-FRA flight-I had to fly BA) and they seemed very plain, nothing special.

My personal opinions
trips I liked:
KLM to AMS (good airline, great airport)
Lufthansa to FRA/MUC (very reliable airline, MUC great if you get a connetion, since it aint too big)
United to wherever they fly (the 777 is great to fly on)
Singapore to FRA (great airline, not-too-great airport)
Swissair (no comment)
trips that delivered what I expected and payed for.
Delta (decent airline)
British Airways (good on the 777, poor on the 742, LHR is a mess)
trips that I didnt like:
Iberia (airline is ok, MAD is a pain)
Air France (good airline, but CDG is a nightmare for connections, and yes, I speak at least some french)
Northwest (wasnt too good overall performance, AMS is great)

A few of you have made references to connections at CDG. I am probably going to use an intinerary from Travelocity that puts me on BA SFO-LHR. I plan on treveling down to Morocco and flying Air France CMN-CDG-SFO. The time for connection in CDG is 1.5 hours. Will that be okay. What sort of headache is CDG?

If you fly only on Airfrance, CDG is quite ok if you have 90 minutes time. Just one little hint that helped me a lot: DO NOT follow the signs. Get the next customer service agent (who speaks english, since I dunno how you French is), and ASK for directions. Made me felt like a moron, but saved me of miles and miles of walking in circles.

I hear often that American airlines are very good. Many European airlines could learn from them. If you want to choose a European one; take SAS; sturdy and one of Europe's most beautiful liveries and female flight attendants (although I do not know for sure whether they fly to and from SFO or not)!
