Picking An Airline

I am travelling over in September, looking on a few flight websites most airlines are around the same price. I usually fly continental, LGW-EWR(newark) what are peoples opinions on BA, Delta and AA on the London to New York route?

Any help would be great! thanks

Never had a problem with AA or Continental, am flying AA again in Sept, mainly because of their leg room/seat pitch - I'm not so bothered about entertainment/food as long as I can sit comfortably!

I've flown BA a few times and like the Newcastle add-on that stops me having to pick up my bags at Heathrow. Always had good service and ( if it's a consideration) they offer alcoholic drinks free on the transatlantic leg whereas the US based airlines charge a $5 fee( or it used to be ).

I've never flown BA, but have done transatlantic on the others... They're all about the same.

I was just considering a $100 cheaper fare on Air India than Continental to Paris - and havent flown Air India since 1980, but opted for the extra for Continental because I can prebook an exit row with them, they're part of the AmEx miles program and the bad experience I had the only time I flew Air India. Then again, at least they kept us delayed overnight in the airport - not sitting on a tarmac!
