Flying from JFK-FCO...which business class

I am flying from JFK to FCO roundtrip and want to use my business class miles for the flights. Seats are available on both American and Delta however, Delta will cost me more miles.

I am looking for more information on which airline's business class is preferred. I have an idea about Delta, but can't find much information about American Airlines.

The flight info is:

DL200 and DL149 on a 767.
AA236 and AA235 on a 763.

Any info would be appreciated!

I can tell you that the AA 763 has what they call NGBC (next generation Business Class) seats. These are all put in within the last year or so. The seats are lie-flat but at an angle. YOu can find out more about NGBC here:

My DH has always flown Delta Business class. In May he flew AA business class and raved about it.

The main difference were the seats lay flat at 180 degrees. Delta's seats lay down at 160 degrees.

Go with AA.

All of AA's 763s business seats have been converted to NGBC.
