Delta is not basic economy? ELAL is 787 which should be more comfortable and EWR is closer.

Delta is basic economy.
Appreciate the help, thanks!

$150 per passanger or total? Definitely a schlep to JFK from lakewood. But in regards to comfort. Delta flies a 2 - 4 - 2 configuration if thats a plus? And plane was pretty comfortable.

$900 total - 6 passengers, so even with a free checked bag it adds up.

What's your mode of transportation/parking plan? how much will that cost at each place?

Looks like the Delta is Virgin Atlantic.
Is that so?  Or is it that you can book the Delta flight through VA?
Does that make a difference?

Business BKK-JFK

Which has a better seat?

JL32 - JL4 OR PR731 - PR126?

At first I thought Japan would be better but the seat looks claustrophobic with no side table.

Anyone has experience with either?

TIA

For a couple weeks from now. No cost as it will be one of the choices passenger is being offered for a cancelled flight.

If you value more comfort, less hassle for connections and don't mind long connection (won't hurt eating a good meal at a kosher restaurant) then option 1
If time is your main priority then option 2
Don't see a case where option C would really make sense except if you most fly transatlantic leg in J and 4 1/2 hour longer journey is the end of the world (or if you really hate sitting a bit longer on planes)

I personally would choose option 1

And no concerns going through DXB, and even going into the city to eat?

Dubai is very safe (probably safer then NYC...) there shouldn't be any concern about flying via DXB or entering Dubai (at least in my opinion)
