First Class to Venice
Which carrier has premium non stop service from the eastern half of the US to Venice?
Any bargains/deals to be aware of?
While there are many great first class carriers operating between the US and Europe, none operate non-stops to Venice.
If the direct flight is a priority, your best option will be [I]business[/I] class with United or Delta, though both carriers only operate seasonally.
Most of us here would probably take the connection in order to use miles, fly a better carrier, etc., but that’s really up to your preferences.
American has a nonstop from PHL to VCE (May through October) business class. For this flight it’s too late for this year and too early for next year bargain wise.
What’s your origin airport? If you’re going to have to connect anyway, it could be worth connecting in Europe instead and possibly get a better hard/soft product.
I would fly British Airways to London then on to Venice, Alitalia also has a very nice “Magnifica Class” from Boston via Rome. As David W. said it may be better to connect. You will also get a better First Class product. For deals always check Kayak, Mumundo, Skyscanner, Vayama etc.
