CO has 31" pitch on the 777.
Either way, EWR
, you will connect with a Regional Jet to Nashville, and they have limited overhead space, so if you have a larger carry on, make sure to pack in it a smaller bag to carry vital items as, they will gate check the larger bag on boarding the Regional Jet. You will get it back as you exit the plane. (I assume they do it the same way in Europe, but since I've never flow an RJ
in Europe, I don't know). The RJ
has 31" pitch.
There are fewer flights to Nashville from EWR
than from IAH
. You may have plenty of time to clear customs and get a relaxed meal at the EWR
before your flight. There are various kinds of places to eat in Terminal C, the CO
terminal for both international and nearly all domestic. (IAH
has nashville flights every 1.5 to 2 hours all day). If you take the IAH
flight, the airport has brand new international arrivals building, then two full service eateries in impressive new Terminal E and one in terminal C and in terminal B (where the RJs depart) as well as various other quick food, sweets shops and bars all around.
You can also connect in CLE
for fun, if you don't mind the 757 from LGW
with no personal video, just overhead movies. And CLE
isn't a great airport, though the RJ
terminal is new and nice.
, you will connect in Detroit or MSP, and it looks like it is all DC10. The flight will be a a very old DC9 to and from Nashville, or on certain flights, an A320. The DC9 has 30-31" pitch and no video system. Avoid the back rows, obviously as there are no windows and the engines are very loud. I do not know much about DTW
CO has power ports (first half of economy) and personal video (all seats) on the 777, but NW does not have it on the DC10 for coach.

city with a President's Club, if you sit outside the door to the President's Club lounge, you can connect to the internet wirelessly for free)

Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
