United Premium Economy vs LOT business - NYC to TLV
« on: November 07, 2019, 04:03:41 PM »
Please tell me pros and cons and which you would prefer?

Obviously United is direct and LOT is with a 2-3 hour layover

Thanks!

I should note that LOT business is currently selling for approximately $500 LESS than UA prem economy for the dates I'm traveling...

LOT between WAW-TLV is eurobiz. LOT out of WAW you get dog food (or not even that)

Don't forget mileage accrual.  I know I earned a ton Aegean miles when I flew LOT Premium, so I would imagine that biz would be even better.

UA premium is priced these days close to business class prices on other airlines. there premium cabin/service is good not great, i hear elal is better and usually cheaper.

Just realized I can book with Virgin Atlantic from jfk not from ewr (preferred airport) in premium economy for substantially less $$ approximately $500 less than lot polish business and about  $1000 less than united premium economy. Any experience with Virgin Atlantic and is it a no brainer?
