    Are those really the only choices?

    Icelandair has the stop en route which makes for a very short night's sleep but the stop is en route so much faster total travel time. Iberia will get you a bit more time to sleep on board but also a couple hours more total travel time.

    No they are not the only choices just wanted to see which was more comfortable, I'm a big gal ;0D

    How about flying into LGW via Norwegian? Any thoughts to share there?

    The 787 has narrow seats, definitely narrower than the FI or IB planes. If you're a big gal that might not be so great. On the plus side, the premium product on Norwegian is usually reasonably priced. Also consider La Compagnie if you can get one of the super cheap fares they're launching this week on EWR-LTN.

    Before getting a ticket to/from an airport other than LHR, be sure to check the location and transportation options. LTN would be considered London's fourth airport, after Heathrow, Gatwick, and Stanstead.

    Don't forget LCY - there used to be non-stops flights to the US from there. Great little airport. I use it for trips to DUB on CityJet from London

    Sure, but it has rail service similar to the others. http://www.london-luton.co.uk/en/content/2/1202/by-rail.html
    Still are; BA has 11x weekly all-business class on an A318.
