I’ve been looking at first Class from LAX to LHR, I only saw 2 first class tickets available on British Airways 747, not the best time, plus if I recall correctly, I flew on this type of aircraft from London to LAX on business class and it was awful. I talked to the booking agent and she said perhaps they are aging planes, maybe that’s the reason why my back hurt on the way back. I’m still mulling whether I should book first class on 747 or just business class on A380, I had a better time on the way out on the business class on A380, plus the departing time is better, just in time for a 9 hour sleep, what’s not to like.
The problem is I didn’t see 2 first class tickets on A380, but I did see 2 first class tickets on 747, maybe they are so bad, nobody wants them.
Anybody has experience with these two type of aircrafts. Any preferences?
We flew last year outbound (different route from USA to Europe, however) on LH F (connecting in FRA), and then back on BA F (connecting in LHR, in the wonderful CCR, Concorde Room).
In both cases, we were in the pointy front end, and I think that's only on the 747's (?).
They were very similar, and were very comfortable.
The only "unfortunate" thing (First World Problem alert!) was that the year before, we had flown to Asia in F on JL (Japan Airline) and returning on CX (Cathay Pacific).
Those were SUPERB F accommodations, and of the two, CX was hands down a winner in terms of both service and hard product.
By comparison, the LH and BA seemed a bit cramped, but still a wonderful way to travel.
In both of those cases, since there were two of us, we had a middle pair, so we could talk more easily if we wished.
(We were also able to pre-order our meal selection, and we are glad we knew about that, as our choices were not available to those who hadn't pre-ordered. (Not sure why; we assume either they didn't load extras or someone else grabbed whatever of that wasn't pre-ordered.)
Our agent has recommended against J (Business) in BA on the routes to/from LHR, and he hasn't led us astray yet...
This signature is a placebo. You are in the control group.
