Airline from NYC to OSL

I'm flying from NYC to OSL in June and I haven't flown to Europe in years so I need some advice on the best economy seat flight...

I love VirginAmerica but I hear the quality is not the same on Virgin-Atlantic - is this true?

What is the best option:

-Fly Continental non-stop?

-Fly BA with stopover in London (+$100)?

-Fly Virgin-Atlantic with stopover in London (+$200)?

Any advice is appreciated!

My thoughts go like this... For the most part a ride in Economy class is more similar than dissimilar-- there are some differences, but overall it isn't all that much that separates carriers in terms of their standard economy cabin products..

Every time you make a connection you are slowly but incrementally increasing the chances that you will suffer a departure delay or flight cancellation or your bag(s) won't make the connection with you. Unless the price is justifiable, I prefer non-stops.

Travel Safe,

+1 Unless collecting FF miles, or you were trying to avoid an abysmal airline, why on Earth would you pay more for the longer journey time and hassle of a non-direct flight?

As GOPBI says, Y is much of a muchness, and none of CO, BA and VS are worth going out of your way to either book or avoid.

Now, there are some trans-Atlantic airlines that I would pay more to avoid - Air India, for ex...
