OK, here are the choices. Trans-atlantic, non-stop flight. Which would you choose?
Northwest Airlines, Airbus a330-200
Leaves 10:55pm your time, Arrives Heathrow 5:05 pm London time. More time to sleep on plane, less time in London on arrival date. 10 hour flight.
British Airways, Boeing 747
Leaves 6:45 pm your time, arrives London 11:45 am London time. Not much time to sleep on plane (due to the time of departure and arrival) but a whole day in London, however could be on very little to no sleep. 9 hour flight.
NW about $200 less than BA. Have never flown either airline, so I have nothing to compare them to. Probably only going to have one carry-on, (going over at least), so no checked baggage. Probably only going to be able to afford coach no matter which I chose.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Advice? So, so appreciated :)
