Help! Routing Recommendations
I’m flying to London for the zillionth time, so I’ve decided that this time, I’d mix it up, and connect in Europe to try some different carrier pairings, & have lunch in town that day.
One of my thoughts is
EWR -> ZUR on LX in Y (330)
Lunch in Zurich, then,
ZUR -> LHR on LX in EuroBiz (C100)
JFK -> FRA on SQ in Y (380)
Lunch in Frankfurt, then,
FRA -> LHR on LH in EuroBiz (320)
I guess I’m weighing the better transoceanic experience in SQ Y over the opportunity to fly on the new CS100. I’ve flown the 380 with EK and AF already, so that’s not something I’m really taking into consideration, though I’ve never flown with LH, LX, or SQ, or to/thru ZUR or FRA. I also carry a PriortyPass if that plays into anyone’s recommendations.
Singapore A380 in a heartbeat. You get wifi (it’s a bit pricey), but you also get access to seatback power, both of which Swiss doesn’t have.
I also think Singapore’s crew is much more consistent.
Matthew from Live & Let’s Fly wrote up that exact flight review last month.
Sorry, I’d also add that personally I’d put much more weight into the 7+ hour transatlantic flight experience, than the 2 hour CS100 experience…
