Expert Flyer is showing lots of space upstairs. Upstairs is better?
Of course.

Tlv-jfk via lhr in J. Is it worth it to change terminals at lhr and get on an AA plane as opposed to a BA one? 1-2-1 vs. 2-4-2...
And is it a pain to change terminals in lhr?
Of course.
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.

Space upstairs?
off topic a bit but I am looking to book a trip from Toronto or NYC basically anywhere flying upstairs on a 747 as I have never done that before. What would be the cheapest way to do that using miles? Which airline offers the best experience?

I believe the cheapest way would be on the plane with $700 cash. Obviously will only work if there's an available biz seat.
Need a good price on a hotel stay? Pm me.

I liked the 747, more private, especially if you can get the nose.

The 787-9 has their latest F product.

Looks like they block the first row on every flight, how did you get it?

PUTPAC. I think they officially release it 24 hours before the flight.

A350 is newer and quieter, would go with that.
