It doesn't matter if you fly upper class or cattle class it still gets you to Florida, the rest are all incidentals. The IFE, Shabby planes etc arn't really that important.

On the up side BA has more planes than VA and should your flight go technical you have more chance of BA finding a replacement plane than VA do.

AND THE BONUS IS, YOUR FLIGHT WAS CHEAPER SO YOU HAVE MORE MONEY TO SPEND IN FLORIDA.
I know you're right really and it'll be fine..lol I'm just in my 2 weeks to go panic mode!

I have flown twice with BA in recent years and they are fine. Yes the planes are older but I have just returned with Thomas Cook in premium economy and can honestly say that the exit seats on BA are much better that. We are booked to return from Miami with BA again next year. If you can get the exit seats, it's well worth it. I find that the BA crew are normally a bit older and have always been nice.
Our flight out to Miami is operated by American Airlines who I never flown with before, so that will be a new one for me. Can anyone tell me what AA are like?

We've flown with BA over the past 3 years and are flying again with them on Friday. Economy is fine, in fact we quite like it - it's a means to an end for us. We flew back PE recently and I have to say I did like it but we got it for a good price and I would never pay the prices they've quoted me recently for it. The drinks service is great, we usually just ask for doubles at the first time of asking and that does us for the trip as we also usually get 2 bottles of wine with dinner (return journey only for DH as he has to drive when we get there, but DS collects us on the way back). We've never had an issue with the IFE but we've usually got movies/tv progs downloaded to the iPad in case there is nothing we fancy. I don't think you've got anything to worry about, enjoy the flight and have a fab holiday.

It will be fine, don't worry, it's just out of the two I prefer VA! You might find your flight is excellent!

Worst airline on the trans Atlantic route imo. But if you have to, as I do occasionally it is bearable. Well below Virgin and AA standards. And way way below the likes of Air Zealand.

You get drinks, yes. Youll need them!
