EWR-OSL/ARN/CPH, 11/25-12/1, $1306/$1309/$1322

EWR-OSL/ARN/CPH, 12/21-29, $1524/$1527/$1530

EWR-LIS, 11/25-12/1, $1349

Don't forget that CO will probably be part of the *A by these dates.
Fantastic! Great find. Do you know if there are any trip reports of people's experiences in CO's international business class? Thanks.

I would suggest looking in the Trip Reports forum. The CO forum might also be useful.

I have a lot of CO meal pictures in my flickr album. Feel free to browse through them. I believe CO uses 752 on those routes. Although the seats are decent and very spacious, it's still a narrowbody. I don't know, I find flying over the pond on a narrow body not particularly exciting. It's like flying domestic. CO meals are always tasty. All in all a good deal but I wouldn't go out of my way to try it.

Unfortunately, other than little hoppers for PIT-NYC, I haven't flown CO for years. That will change once they join *A, of course. I have heard good things about the quality of the FA service from colleagues who have flown them, though.

That is definitely the exception and not the norm. Their FAs are horrible. Most of them have a stick up theirs and disappear into the galley after meal service so that they could close the curtains and enjoy the BF meals that are meant for the pax. Go to the CO forum and you will find similar threads.

I find most other legacy airlines to have far superior service from the FAs than CO.

Their meals, however, are one of the best among US carriers without a doubt, only because they own chelsea, so their costs are much lower compared with other airlines.

CO is a top-notch airline and provides excellent service to its customers, especially those in F, BusinessFirst and their Elites. Some folks might have experienced a few issues, but no airline is issue-free.

Give CO a try - you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Conflicting information....head exploding... I hear (and have experienced) the same two sides wrt UA's service, so I guess that's just par for the course.

By that time, CO will be in Star Alliance. @:-) Connecting to/from LH flights will be a major benefit.

We've been discussing this a bit in the Good Premium Deals thread: Shameless link to my own post there

(Now that this post has been moved into this thread, my post is completely circular, but oh well).

BKK-TPE RT was 366 when I looked last week, I was going to book it but I had to cancel my plans due to the typhoon forecast ( which actually hit so Im glad I did not book as I would have been arriving the day many flights were cancelled)
