BA definitely, if i remember rightly, the inside of an AF concorde looks like a 60's soviet transporter. BA have also just spent millions refiting concorde with very posh seats, and the bathrooms are amazing. The food is also great and the free gifts are always bling bling if you get the picture hehe!

Hope this has helped.

BA is a little more expensive that AF, but the whole experiences is far superior.

From the minute you arrive at the airport that are special VIP style Concorde lounges right at the boarding gate.

On the BA service they also have a standby aircraft available should a technical issue prevent the main aircraft from carrying out the route. With AF there is a chance the service could be cancelled and you put on a regular sub-sonic aircraft.

BA's food and service is generally regarded as being much better, but on Air France they possibly have a better selection of wines.

I would say for the cabin layout, BA.
For the food, soory, but it is AF: Menus have been elaborated by Alain Ducasse, the first chef to have 2 restaurants with the 3 "stars'' in the Michelin guide.
And of course, as Gordonroxburgh says, a fantastic selection of wines.
And at CDG, AF has the same type of VIP lounges, dedicated way through security, and special services.
My choice? CDG JFK with AF, and return JFK LHR with BA. And if you have to travel from LHR to Paris, why not try the Eurostar (High speed train crossing the Channel)
Nana...

BA definitely. AF is much more of a 'gourmet' experience as stated above, but bearing in mind that you only have just over two hours to enjoy it (in terms of the overall service rather than time) I'd recommend that if you want to go the 'gourmet' route then fly AF long haul subsonic.
