New York to Paris: Help!

I tried to search, and didn't find anything that was quite recent. Can anyone give insight onto the best airline to fly out of NYC including Newark to Paris?

I am going to have 2 checked bags along with my carry-on and I have been trying to figure out which is the best because of the baggage fees I will incur. Is it better to fly Premium Economy and save on baggage fees or fly Eco and pay the baggage fees?

Lastly, I flew American Airlines the last time I went, wasn't horrible, wasn't great. I've been considering OpenSkies, but I've heard mixed stories...

Take a look at this very recent thread from the Paris forum; it is long but has some useful info. Flying premium economy is going to cost you considerably more than the baggage fees.

Do you have time to apply and get the DL Skymiles Amex? First year is fee-free and 2 checked bags are included if you pay for tkt with card.

JFK and EWR have nonstops.

Not sure about International carriers, but US carriers usually allow one FREE checked bag in coach. Also, if you have an airline affiliated CC, check their rules. A number of them now offer some free checked baggage as a benefit when using thei card to purchase the tickets.

Thank you very much everyone! I do not have a CC affiliated with an airline, and would rather not get one, but I will read through the thread suggested.

Really appreciate everyone's feedback. I may have another question, so I will post it here :)
