I have just recently flown an AA
and I have to say it was excellent, the leg room was amazing and the service was great (better when your flying out of LHR
than flying into). I have never flown BA
on long haul but I cant tell you about AA
as I have flown them to the US a few times. The triple 7 is a great aircraft, really roomy and comfortable and the MRTC is a god send on long haul. Food and service is great with AA
and the flight attendants are really nice and helpful, the FA
's tend to be older women with AA
on long haul to the UK I don't know why this is but I prefer them as they are much nicer than most I have experienced. Flying out of LHR
is better than flying into LHR
the flights to the UK tend to be night flights and service tend to be toned down a bit, the movies (of which there were 4) weren't that good on the flight to the UK mainly mystery, horror and things like that (I prefer comedy). Flying to the US tends to be day time flights and service was excellent, drinks are complimentary (except booze) and they came round regularly offering snacks and drinks. Food to the US is better too, on both it tends to be chicken or beef! Movies to the US are better I watched without a paddle, sharktale and some other movies. A few gripes with AA
, It was really hard to get window seats so check what seats are available before you book, and get your seats assigned when you book, there are no other seats available at check in! (I was told 30% of seats were unassigned for check in only). Personally I would base my decision on price and the least complications! Connecting is tough enough in one airport without having to travel to another to do it!
Equally Cursed and Blessed.
