Please, find the report from my last flight to the US here:

http://ptn-onboard.blogspot.com/

There are also other / older trip reports, but only ( 1 guest ) flewn by the PTN crew themselves.

This flight is a very typical example, how to avoid getting ripped off by airlines, who charge you hell of fares, only because you live in the wrong country

Nice report, thanks. Makes me smile to read about the 'you won't have a meal on board' nonsense.

BA certainly has their act together in delivering a consistently solid J class service and yes, the semi-private cabins are the best. Smart to take the rear facing seat as with the aircraft natural incline one's head is in a better position for sleeping. I also find Hertz the best rent-a-car company of them all in the US. Like BA, consistently good and convenient services - I'm not surprised you caught the upgrade, even if you didn't like the color.

Thanks for the report.

Quoting b707forever (Reply 2):
I'm not surprised you caught the upgrade

I was surprised. Some weeks ago I knew that I had a tour of some thousand miles to drive, so I thought about renting a green collection also. I thought about renting a Toyota Prius and hoped to get a Camry ( both hybrid ). When I called Hertz before this rental, they told me clearly, that upgrades are only available if you rent standard cars. For green or fun collection u usually get only what you pay for.

Thanks for posting the report. It's nice to hear that BA accommodated the ticket change.

Unfortunately, I've not been lucky enough to sample BA's j class, only ua and aa from lhr. You seemed to really enjoy the seat and the privacy is nice. I guess my question though, is you don't feel cramped or claustrophobic? The space looks a little tight? Is that true?

Catering looks very nice. Now that I'm living in Europe again, I think I'll def give ba a try based on your recommendations. From NAP, I have to connect to get back to the states, and the easiest option is via MUC or FRA. If the product is good though, wouldn't mind flying to gatwick and then taking the shuttle to heathrow.

Thanks again for sharing!

I"m not a slim guy ( 125 kgs ) but don't feel cramped in this seats. The overall product is not only cheaper but also far better than Lufthansa. However I would not recommend airport transfer in London. If you book in time you should be able to get a cheap connection from NAP to FCO or to Milan and then go through LHR directly. Just my 2 cents

Thanks for the tips and the awesome trip report Mennix. I'll have to look maybe at the discounted airlines to fco or mxp as suggested and then take BA from there. As mentioned, I like AA, I think they offer a decent product at a competitive price, but felt 'stuck' using them for transatlantic flights because of the loss of the miles. It's one thing to forgo miles from nap to fco or mxp, but something else entirely to lose them on lhr to ewr or bos. I'm happy to see one world finally giving the flyer a choice. Again, many thanks for the tip and the great report.
