Recommendations On Trip BCN-LAX

Sat Jul 17, 2004 8:45 am

Hi all. Been reading this site for years and now been promoted, so I have to travel quite often from Barcelona to the US and Canada. Just done transatlantic with Iberia on first, business and just got here with Delta on Business. Delta is better on business, no idea how their first compares to Iberia's (but that first class trip was special, company flies me on business normally).

Anyway, I have a trip coming in 1 week to LAX from Barcelona (BCN). Simplest way is to use Delta BCN-JFK-LAX but 1. I hate inmigration in JFK and 2. I want to try another airline. Also I would like a flight as port of entry to the US LAX, even if I cannot leave from BCN direct. I've heard of some airlines that have quite amazing business service but never flown on them. To get Delta's miles, I can use Air France or Virgin Atlantic. How good is business on VA? Is it better in Air France? What about British Airways, is it worth loosing the miles that I can get on the others?

Top for me is having electricity on board (delta does not, you have to buy an adaptor, Iberia lets you borrow) and comfortable seats. Would love something better to sleep than Delta's or Iberia's which are not great. Food is second priority for me.

Thanks all for any tips,

Juan Miguel Venturello

I would go for Virgin. LHR is a pain, but Virgin upper class is super
