Flew BA Seattle/Amsterdam this past June (on an overnight flight). Efficient crew, OK food. It was just fine. And those little seat-back televisions are the greatest invention in air travel!

In the last 3 years, I've flown AA to London / Manchester 5 times and BA to London / Copenhagen 5 times. Two horror stories for each airline. FF miles are the deciding factor. Although, I like the "international" feeling that I get on BA leaving Dallas. And I like the "home again" feeling flying AA back to the states.

BTW, I'm ExecPlatinum on AA and they upgraded me to Business class from an economy ticket all 5 times. BA on the other hand didn't upgrade me once.

I flew BA from Chicago to London and had a great experience. I wouldn't take anything else.

Hi Jane,

I've flown American several times to Europe and only had positive experiences. We especially appreciate the extra leg room and comfort of the newer planes ( the 777s). Found American much better for transatlantic flights than Delta which really was terrible! Good luck and have fun!

squished,

I couldn't agree with you more.

On my last trip to Europe I flew AA to London and BA from London to Jersey. The much longer AA flight was so much more pleasent.

I usually work hard to find the lowest fare, but I would pay several hundred dollars more to not fly BA. I haven't tried every airline, but BA was the most unpleasent of the dozzen or so that I have flown.

flygirl,

As long as the UK is the main country supporting Bush, why would you think BA would be less likely to be hit than AA?
