What international carriers best for flying in economy U.S./Europe

Jump to last reply

I've been using AA and UA miles to upgrade to Business Class for travel from Chicago to European destinations for thirty odd years, which has gone from easy-peasy to a costly crap shoot over the duration. On my most recent flight to France my upgrade didn't come through on departure and I ended up flying Economy Plus on AA. On the return flight the upgrade came through. Of the two flights, the EP was the more comfortable, due to the excruciating "dental chair" in AA's Business Class, which I understand are being phased out - and not a moment too soon.

As a result of the current high fees involved and not particularly enjoying the hit or miss upgrade availability, I am wondering if I should just bite the bullet, forget about the craziness of the upgrade fiasco and just fly economy on one of the international carriers, such as Singapore Airlines, or other. Any suggestions? I know some of you Fodorites must have figured this out already!
