    Hi everyone.

    I need some help!!! So FI and I are going to Italy for our honeymoon, and i'm in the process of researching flights. It just seems that some are way more than other for the same flight times and everything. I've only traveled overseas once, and I haven't even seen that airline on any of my searches. So I was wondering if any of yall have used any of these airlines, and what yall thought about them. I've tried looking at reviews online, but they don't seem legit. Yalls feedback would be greatly appreciated! I just really don't want to be stuck on a terrible airline thats cramped and gross for 12 hours on our way to our honeymoon, kwim? And 1st class is out of the question, of course! TIA!!!

    Air Canada
    Air Berlin
    Swiss
    Eurofly
    British Airways
    United

      I have flown Air Canada, British Airways, and United. I think they're all pretty much the same from what I can remember, with British Airways probably being a tad nicer than the others. A lot of Canadians hate Air Canada though...they always seem to have delays. Are you flying direct to Italy or do you have a layover at Heathrow?

        HI Casey,

        I wish I could be more help. I flew on American to Rome and it was awesome. We flew coach there and Business Class on the way back.

          british airways is the only one i've used on that list. i've flown with them twice and never had any issues. it was pretty roomy (as far as coach goes). the first time i flew with them i was 19 and alone on my first trip overseas and they were very nice and helped me figure out where i was going.

            Yes! Air Canada is HORRIBLE!! Their customer service is aweful!! Their planes aren't that nice.. if you get one with a TV then they are ok I guess. They are almost always delayed and they aren't very accomodating if you get stuck somewhere. I avoid them at all costs! Just my experience though.

                I would have a layover in Canada. But a short one, so it being on time is kinda crucial. Heather, did you fly all of those overseas?

                  Hi Casey ...I am from Calgary ,Canada...I will be the first one to tell you not to take Air Canada ...its a lousy airline...I have been to Europe several times and I would take Swiss Air as my #1 choice ...but British Airways are really good too ! Good Luck ...Connie

                    United was just to the USA. British I took when I flew to London (both times I think). I've flown Air Canada to Japan and back, but that doesn't really count because it was first class both ways so it was actually really nice!
