BA Or VS To New York?

Wed Jan 09, 2008 8:57 pm

Hope someone on here can help.
I'm looking at going to NY for a week in April and I have had a search for flights between EDI and NYC. Two of the cheapest options (in economy) were BA and VS (BA domestic). Both go via LHR? :| I would have taken the direct CO flight but it's just too expensive. So... I'm asking...should we fly VS or BA?

All help is appreciated!

They're both good, but if you travel from EDI, only BA would interline your luggage... methinks.

If it is on the one ticket ( from www.opodo.co.uk ) would they not transfer the luggage?

and VS interlines with BA, not BD?? That's new to me

From BRU, if you travel BA all the way, they transfer the luggage, but VS interlines with BD on flights to/from LHR..

Yeah OK.
I just thought as it was on one ticket they may transfer the luggage. I guess not...
One more question. Which airport is closer to manhattan? JFK or EWR? Is one airport better than the other?

Thanks,

I've booked BA EDI-LHR-JFK rtn. I know that T5 opens on the 27th March. I'm travelling on the 7th April returning 14th. The domestic flights arrive and depart from T5, where as the JFK flights depart and arrive T4. I thought that all BA ops were moving to T5? Also, if I book the BA flights from an external website (www.airline-network.co.uk), will I still be able to check-in online on www.ba.com?

Thanks
