|Subject: Re: Airfare to Italy...looking for opinions|
It makes sense to try for a schedule that will keep your mom as comfortable as possible!
Lufthansa: change in either Frankfurt or Munich. Both are offered from Boston Delta: change in Milan Air France: change in Paris/deGaulle Northwest/KLM: change in Amsterdam
The ground transit between Heathrow & Gatwick isn' t all that bad, but since there are options to make one change without a ground transit, unless it saves heaps of money, why do it.
I've done the Lufthansa connection in both Munich & Frankfurt & I thot they were dead simple. On the others, I have no personal experience, but fares may make a difference. I suspect we won't see the deals for March until November or so, so you've got time to think about it.
