Late spring we head for ATH and want to arrive by around 2 pm. We are flying DL award tickets. DL cancelled the JFK - ATH non-stop the day we are flying and said pick an alternative. We could fly via AMS but saw nothing in before 4:20 My choices are all busines class and include Airbus A330-200 by Air France with an almost 4 hour connect on to ATH A Delta Boeing 767 with lay flat seats with a 2h 5m connect An Air France Boeing 777-300ER with a 2h 20m connect or an Air France Airbus A380-800 with a 1h 15 connect. I'm considering the Delta 767 for the lay flat seats although with my luck it will be changed to recliner seating. How does Delta recliner compare to AF recliner seating. I could fly to FCO on Alitalia's 330 via EWR. It looks to have lay flat seats. It connects to an Alitalia flight to ATH but has just 1h 30m. I believe you have to change terminals. Advice?
