Even though I like American better than Continental, I would take the Continental flight just to fly on a DC-10. As you know, the DC-10 is being replaced in most airlines and I would take advantage of the oportunity to fly on one before Continental replaces them with 777s.

I go with American too !
Although the DC10 versus B777 arguments has merit. I only wish I had taken the British VC-10 on British years ago, instead og going for the flight departure (B747) that suited my schedule.
Of course, if you've flown on a DC10, use the 777 as it has better interior space.

I would go on American as you get to fly on nore then one type of plane. But if you have not flown on a DC-10 or like the DC I would go on that. Also another thing to consider Air mails do you collect them choose from then. Or why do you not combine the flight first leg American seconf Continental.

I would take Continental. First of all, the DC-10 is one of my favorite airliners and its much more comfortable than the MD-80. in addition, the second leg of your joiner is a little shorter. 10 hours 45 minutes is a long way.

I took a Continental DC-10 from Paris to EWR a couple years ago and found the service to be wonderful. The plane, though old, was very nice on the inside. I'd recommend Continental's international service to anyone.

I would rather fly on a DC-10 than an MD-80 so in this case I would choose Continental. I would choose Continental if I were to travel on a free ticket or if I didn't have any miles in either airline. But if I have to pay then I have to choose American to build up my miles (I have some miles on American but no miles on Continental, I've never flown with CO but I know it's a good airline). American is the best, the only thing I would not be happy about is that I would have to fly on an MD-80 instead of a DC-10.
Anyway my advice:
Look how many miles you have in each, when they expire, and see what you could get in each airline.
Have a nice flight.

Bryan,
I agree with you. You think the same way. I would also work things out to fly on a DC-10 because I know that it's going to be gone soon. I also mentioned in my post that I would rather choose Continental because it's a DC-10. That's if it's a free ticket.
By the way how many miles do you have in each?
Ben

Ben: The only time I flew on Continental was from LAX to Sydney via Honolulu and return. This was back in the days when Continental and Northwest flew that route (now only Air NZ, Qantas and United do).
As for American, I can't remember ever flying with them. But I still think they are the best overall big airline in the US.
