I have heard VS upper class suite is very nice, but then I donno how you can make your way fro VCE to LHR without using another airline

Why not try Finnair?
I flew them a couple of times on there Asia routes and was always very satisfied.
I think they still fly there MD11 on the vantaa-JFK routes ,these days something exotic.
You can also use al the One-World lounges.

Hello Giovanni -

A question for you - how many airports have you transited in Europe? I think most international airlines are you going to give you fairly good service, but you might want to consider which airport is going to be the easiest to connect through.

AZ will give you a domestic-to-international connection, whereas the others will require international-to-international connections. I have heard horror stories about some transfers at LHR, but I do not know firsthand.

Best of luck to you!!
