DL : BRU to JFK book in Z for 1226 return

I was looking for flights to NYC from Brussels and I found nice availability for 1226€ from June to January, maybe more, I haven't searched deeply...

Bookable on Delta.com

Fly a 767, not the best lie flat seat out there, but if you score the first row, you'll get plenty of space for your feet

Is the 767 business so bad ? I was considering the seasonal direct flight PRG - JFK, but the 767 pictures didn't look very tempting.. I decided to go with BA (through LHR for same price) as usual, but didn't book the tickets yet..

DL is so much more pleasant in J than BA. I guess there's miles earning and status considerations, but even with these, there's no way I'd ever chose BA over DL if both are at the same price point. The 76s are perfectly fine and I find everything else leaps and bounds ahead of BA.

If you have largish feet the foot wells of all but row 1 can be very tight. And seats are a bit narrow so if you are a back sleeper and have wide shoulders it may also be a tight fit (I'm a side sleeper so it doesn't bother me.)

I basically can't sleep if I'm not in row 1 -- my feet are pretty much locked in. So I keep it in recliner mode then (OK for daytime flights).

Obviously a smaller person won't have these issues...

I also would recommend Row 1 for the footwell, but the 767 is just fine in terms of width, both as a seat and a bed.

I still see plenty of availability and Star alliance seems to have aligned themselves on the fares

And the 767 seats aren't that bad, but if you are tall the foot cubical is very narrow unless on row one... and Delta is much better than BA...

Still an AZ fare in place for BRU and DL plus others are still there for TXL. At least they are still in the GDS.

I assume that one could skip the initial train portions of an itinerary without affecting the flight portion ...

For example, if I can price Brussels - Amsterdam (Thalys) connecting to Amsterdam - New York (KLM), can I just pick up the itinerary in Amsterdam without using the train segment?
