I'd say go with VS
. Flights to NRT
are pretty quiet at the moment (although we are carrying sh!t loads of cargo on that route - 36,000Kgs the other day !!), so chances are you would get a whole row to yourself.
The new IFE is great. There are about 58 films and 58 TV
channels to watch and loads of games, although if you have a window seat in econ or a middle aisle seat, the control box takes half the legroom.
I have flown both VS
longhaul in both Econ and Business, and I'd say that VS
has the better service in econ and Business, but BA
has the better seat in Business. The crew on VS
tend to be much better looking than BA
's crew too which I find helps on a 12 hour flight
Anyway either way - enjoy the trip.
