Need Paris Flight Advice

Jump to last reply

I had to cancel my October Paris trip for various reasons and am now trying to reschedule for May.
I have enough AA MILES to fly business class one way, direct flight MIA/CDG (very convenient for me), but economy returning, also direct, great flight. OR I can go MIA/London/Paris on BA instead, using same miles (plus some $$) Business both ways.

On many past Paris trips this particular AA direct flight has been OK in economy for me but now being in "steerage" can be miserable, as I found out on my last flight. Especially when the person in front of me reclined her seat for the whole 9 hours! The seat configurations are awfully cramped these days, and I'm just a normal sized woman. I honestly don't know how 6 foot plus men can stand it.

Anyway, can any of you give me your opinion as to whether the hassle of changing planes, waiting 3 hours at Heathrow, etc. is worth it for a more comfortable flight?? Yes, I know I'm the only one who can decide for myself, but I'm in need of help! The extra few hundred dollars spent probably would be worth it for the comfort, but I'm not sure about the rest. As a reference, I'm NOT young - in fact, rather old.

Another question in case I do decide to go the Heathrow route - one possible connection allows 1 1/2 hours, the other flight 3 hours connection time, both are same airline (BA). Is 1 1/2 hours enough time?
Planes are late, I know!

I just thought of another option to consider on the returning, daytime flight : Paris/Helsinki/Miami, 4 1/2
hours each leg, without long connection time. Would be less money to pay, but same amount of miles used. It would be on Finnair, which also partners with AA.

Any ideas are appreciated!
