LH/LX Or AF/KL Or AZ Short Haul?

Wed Jul 06, 2011 1:54 pm

Am planning to fly London/Heathrow - Madrid in August.

Wanted to try something different rather than the usual IB/BA offerings.

Any recommendations, my options are as follows:

LHR-FCO-MAD, MAD-LIN-LHR Alitalia A32S

LHR-FRA-MAD, MAD-ZRH/GVA-LHR Swiss A32S/Lufthansa A32S

LHR-AMS-MAD, MAD-CDG-LHR Air France AT7,A321/KLM 73G,F100

I would go for that option, but i am a little biased

depends what you want.
LH and LX are the best catering wise, but you'll get boring Airbuses.
KLM/AF might be nice to fly on something rarer, if you are logging flights on airline/aircraft combinations.
AZ is the least preferable; boring aircraft and little food.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

I would go for this option, just because you'll get to fly on a variety of aircraft, and not just the A320 family.
Flown on: ATR72-5, E190, E195, A319/20/21, A332/3, A380, 734/6/G/8/9ER, 744, 752/3, 763ER/4ER, 772ER/LR, Q300, RJ100

KLM 73G often replaced by 738, 734, 733 or 739, all on demand...
F100's on the LHR-AMS route? Probably possible, but can be replaced by 737's also since very few F100's are around with KLM these days.
