Who to fly from Europe to India in J this summer?
I’m looking into booking BRU-DEL and BOM-BRU flights in J this summer.
Narrowing down, there are three options which work great time-wise and price-wise:
1) Turkish (A330/B777/A321)
2) Emirates (B777/A380)
3) British Airways (A321/B787/B777)
Living in Belgium I have a miles-and-more-account with about 25.000 miles (don’t travel that much), and an Iberia plus account with a couple of hundred avios.
Who would you chose?
BTW, price for British Airways first class is only 500 EUR above J, worth it?
For J class, I’d say TK is the best of the choices, with great catering and a massive lounge in IST. Seats are pretty spacious.
For EK, if its on their A380, its also a pretty good option, especially since you can access their bar at the back of the upper deck. Lounges at DXB are spacious and great as well. If it’s [I]not[/I] on their A380, I’d go with TK.
For BA, their J is kinda squished together. Better than Y but nothing special. TK and EK will be better options. Their F is decent enough though, so its a solid option, especially if its only a 500EUR premium. However, I assume it’ll be a transit thru LHR, which isnt so fun.
My choices would probably be BA F, TK J/EK J A380, EK J 77W, BA J in that order.
