EI Or CO Or DL To New York

Thu May 04, 2006 5:08 am

I'm currently planning visiting New York in June and was wondering which airline would be the better to fly on. Price wise they are pretty close so I was just wondering about the service levels and IFE (if any) on them?

Any help or incite would be appreciated.

If you fly CO, you will be on a 752, so that is one thing to consider. I personally love CO and don't see this as a bad thing, but I have heard some people comment negatively on the narrow body transatlantic flights, but it is really a personal thing.

Personally, I would take CO over DL. Never flown on EI, so I can't help you there.

But then, I'm not exactly an impartial source.

CO-- easily. Best service, best seats, best overall experience and the EWR hub is easy to use.

Well I would obviously choose Delta. Delta flies the 767 on this route if you dont want to fly a narrowbody.
Fly Delta!

Thanks for the replies.
I thinking DL, as from what I can see EI have no IFE, and while I love the 757 for a trip that long it could be a bit cramped. That and DL appear to be cheaper and their timings suit me better.

I personally would go on DL as they have awesome 764's on the route. But it depends what airport is your preference and FFP e.t.c. Don't think DL has ptv's on the 767's but I have heard that they are high-quality on the atlantic. EI would be my next choice, they have 32" seat pitch and big 330's with 2-4-2 seating. Co would be my last choice because of the 757 but as said above it's a personal thing wih narrow-bodies across the pond.
