Best value would be for BA miles on AA flights.

If its UA make sure it departs JFK & not EWR.

Dunno about SFO, but I know there are still PMCO lie-flat 752s running EWR-LAX.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I didn't say on all flights, but to rule out EWR altogether for J is wrong.

All UA flights have angled lie flat seat in biz

I know SFO as well. The problem is  finding availability on those flights

I actually just checked for the dates I want and there isn't a single  flight that operates a 752 so EWR is not a option.
As far as hard product is there a difference between UA and AA in J?

My family always uses UA Business - some people prefer it to the First Class cabin. Ive spotted celebs on UA Biz several times. Availability is easy and taxes are cheap. And yes, only out of JFK do they use the 757 P.S service with 3 cabins.
