Best Business Class Option? BOS-BLR

Wed Jun 27, 2012 2:32 pm

Later this year, in October, I have to fly BOS-BLR-BOS and my options are somewhat limited to AF via CDG or BA via LHR. There's also an outside chance that I may be able to chose LH via FRA or EK via JFK/DXB but my company does not have a corporate deal for either EK or LH.

If given a choice, I would chose EK just so I don't have to change planes in Europe in the middle of the night. I really like the long haul sector between JFK and DXB where I can get a full night of sleep, and I like arriving at BLR at 5pm instead of the very late night arrival of the Euro carriers.

So my questions are these: Between AF, BA, LH, which airline has the best business class product to BLR? Do any of these carriers have inflight wi-fi between Europe and BLR?

Very easy. BA - the only one with full flat J-class seat. Both AF and LH have angled seats.

Can you take the day-time BA flight from BOS and connect with an overnight flight from LHR? I've done that to Asia a few times and it's a nice option.

I agree entirely. I used to live in BLR and would always fly BA when possible. The flat bed makes all the difference. I agree that EK is the best option sleep wise though if you can get it.

No. You can to BOM, but not to BLR.

Thanks guys. Does BA still have the backwards facing J class seats? I've always been skeptical about those.
