If you want non-stop, your best bet is American, but it is only marginally better than Aer Lingus, so in that case you should probably just go with whomever is cheaper.

If stopovers aren't an issue, you should consider these in this order, giving considerations for airfare:
1. Austrian
2. Continental
3. SAS
4. British (requires Gatwick-Heathrow transfer)
5. Lufthansa
6. Swiss
7. Air France
8. American
9. Turkish
10. Aer Lingus
11. Air Canada
12. LOT Polish
13. Delta
14. US Airways
15. Iberia
These are based on 2005 Zagat rankings. What you should do depends on airfare, convenience, and personal preference.

I would put my money on AC. There is a chance you could get on one of the new XM birds to YYZ and then a good chance you can get on an Embraer to ORD. Of course this will have the connection in YYZ.

Seeing as you are 13-15, do you really have much decision power as to which airline you will be flying? But never the less, please define "best." Do you wand best food? Best service? Best seat? Best entertainment? Best lounges? Best is just too broad imo. What exactly would it be that you are looking for?

Because you are flying economy, I do not think you will notice much difference between airlines. Be it an American or a European carrier, they are all pretty basic. My best advice though would be to aim for an airline/aircraft that will at give you a PTV. It really isn't until the upper classes where vast differences begin appearing.

My personal opinion: 1) British Airways 2) Lufthansa 3) American.

To sum it up though, because it is economy, just go for whoever is cheapest and most direct. Have fun in the windy city. Will expect a trip report and pictures of the late CGX.  Wink
