All British airlines are safe.

Some of the 'low cost' airlines have newer and better planes than the 'established' carriers.

Apart from flying, there is a comprehensive railway network in Europe. But it's about 10 hours from Paris to Rome / Roma Termini (changing trains at Turin / Turino Porta Susa). However London to Paris is easily done by train (Eurostar) in a few hours, city centre to city centre.

All European airlines are considered safe. BA and the other national carriers (KLM, Air France, Alitalia, Czech Airlines) also BMI, easyJet, Ryanair, Monarch are all popular.

On the shorter routes, train works out faster, as it's city centre to city centre, and many European trains reach speeds of 300 km per hour. This is a very good website for train travel: http://www.seat61.com/

Eurolines operate an extensive bus network - they're slower than trains and planes, but also much cheaper: http://www.eurolines.com/
