This month, ‘CNN Business Traveller’ road-tests the most glamorous route in the sky: NY-LON.

Linking the world’s two key business hubs, New York and London, the NY-LON route has long been the biggest prize in aviation.

Host Richard Quest puts to the test the five major carriers that compete on the route, criss-crossing the Atlantic in a number of ways: trying out American Airlines’ all new cabin; British Airways’ all business class flight; Delta’s ‘Heavenly Bed’; United’s new home at Heathrow T2 and drinks at the bar on Virgin Atlantic. He tests the lounges, the food, the service and most importantly of all….the bed!
