I'm piggybacking off another question on this forum about transtlantic flights from the US. What about us Canadians on this forum? WestJet, AirCanada or one of the European carriers? Out of Calgary I can fly direct to London, Paris or Rome via WestJet but have to connect out of Toronto or Montreal for those cities via Air Canada. Overall, Air Canada offers more destinations but with a connection if flying from the West. British Airways, KLM and Lufthansa are the major carriers that I can get direct flights from Calgary and so I keep them in the mix as well; I haven't flown with them yet but I hear people rave about the KLM flight from Calgary to Amsterdam. As far as comfort goes, I'll take WestJet's new Dreamliners in a heartbeat over the others.
So fellow Canadians, how do the rest of you determine which airline to Europe best fits your needs?
