I would suggest this. On ur overnight eastbond flight (iad-fra)
I would choose LH
. The reason being that you are most likely going to sleep
on this flight anyway, and the lack of PTV thus won't come into it as much.
Pick the A340 if you are planning to sleep, because its the easiest to get to the aisle. Pick the 747 if you want to experience the sheer joy. Then take united on the way back to the states. (daytime ur up and probably watch PTV)
is a good operation... its good value for money and always punctual. If you have to be there ontime fly LH
is operating probably offering a little more on the route due to the PTV's and the fact the 777 has wide seats.... although if your sleeping your better off in an A340(if you need to pee a lot that is). I think on intercontinental flights, UA
is offering a lot more for economy passengers than say, american.(im still cheesed about having to pay for wine on AA
One more point. If you are, or are travelling with somebody under 21, you can drink on a European airline. I bet if you were 15 you could get away with it on AF
Also if your working, you probably don't care about ptv.... so the LH
food might entice. But then again, united serve starbucks coffee....
Let us all know what you choose.
