RE: Best J Class Fare: CDG-SYD, July?

I do not have specific fares to give you, but you would be wise to look for a <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> or <acronym title="Qantas (Australia)">QF</acronym> flight out of <acronym title="London - Heathrow (LHR / EGLL), United Kingdom">LHR</acronym>...

RE: So What's The Best Airline?

About A), I would add another criterion, and that would be seat width. Legroom is definitely key in long-haul comfort, but so is decent shoulder- and elbow-room. 2nd class in most French trains offers better seat width than your average Y in a 747, 340 or 777... But with a 56$ barrel, I guess today'...

IMHO, Leskova rightly pointed to the fact that it's not so much the distance that matters, but rather the time it takes you to get there. A case in point would be <acronym title="Paris - Charles de Gaulle (Roissy) (CDG / LFPG), France">CDG</acronym>. It is quite far from downtown Paris (about 20 km,...
