Without considering frequent flyer miles or anything of that nature, the best product for a transatlantic flight in my opinion is the new American Airlines First Class, which I recently flew from JFK to Sao Paulo in April. I thought it The Boston to Heathrow flights on AA are terrible (old, noisey and poor service) as they still use the old domestic planes and not a transatlantic plane. This is my regular route and BA wins every time and is a good product in all classes of travel.
