I've been looking at flights from Los Angeles to Milan / Rome to Los Angeles and had been eyeing some flights on KLM, which has a good reputation from what I've seen. Then once I looked closer, I realized that the flights were with KLM partners and the LA to NY flight is on Delta and the NY to Milan on Alitalia. Same is true of the return flights. After much looking around, I still believe that these are the best flights for us overall, and the price of the flights seems to be the same whether you book them on Delta's website or on KLM's website. (Interestingly, the Rome-LA flight I want isn't available on the Alitalia website - should this be a concern?) In any case, does anyone have any ideas on whether it's better to book directly through Delta or through KLM? If the price is the same, is there anything else I should be concerned about? Thanks for any wisdom you can share...
