Air New Zealand vs Avianca?

Air New Zealand vs Avianca?

  1. Maria de la Peña

    Hi Ben!
    I need to travel from Hermosillo (northern Mexico) to Madrid on December 2016. The Mexico-Madrid nonstop flight is out of the question right now as they are extremely pricey. I found 2 budget-friendly options so far. Flying to LA and then LA-London-Madrid through Air New Zealand (on their Boeing 777-300) and British Airways, or flying to Mexico City and then Mexico-Bogota-Madrid through Avianca (on their Dreamliner). Which route would you recommend? PS. I am a nervous flyer worried about safety.

    Hi [USER=2075]@Maria de la Peña[/USER], and welcome!

    Both would be safe, but I would go with the Avianca routing. They have a nice new business class on their 787, and connecting in Bogota will be 1000% easier than connecting in Los Angeles [I]and[/I] London!

    Are you flying economy or business? Tiffany assumed you were flying business, but you mention being sensitive to price and a budget, looking at connecting options.

    [USER=2025]@keitherson[/USER] — Oh, good point! If she’s flying economy that seems like even more reason to avoid LA (clear immigration and security) and Heathrow (clear security).

    Hi Tiffany and Keith and thank you for replying!
    I was looking at economy but if would consider business as well. Is flying economy on Avianca too bad?
