AA’s business set up, 1-2-1, beats BA’s new Club World hands down, most specifically in leg room.
UA’s Polaris, at least when in 1-2-1 seating, is also better deal than BA.
I’ve not flown BA F since 2016, JNB-LHR on a 380, so I can’t compare that offering.
But both AA’s T3 and UA’s T2 Lounges are much less crowded and are better stocked than BA’s T5 pair – though I do like the quieter T5B Lounge if your gate is that side.
Another thing I like about AA is that they are better at controlling an orderly boarding process than BA, and much less tolerant of oversize carry-ons.
If things go wrong, AA Customer Service will call you back if their wait time is longer than 10 minutes.
I flew Club Suites and old First this week – even though I upgraded using Avios, I was thinking that the hard product was better in Club – more power options, useful storage, better IFE equipment. The food and drink is the only thing better in F, and that’s not worth 18,000 Avios, never mind hundreds/thousands of pounds……
Actually, just rather not think about it!!!
