Just beginning to research trip to Italy next May- flying Bos to Rome ,. Narrowing my airlines down to Air France, Delta and KLM due to the schedule and shorter flights - Alitalia has non stop fbut reviews are horrible and they could go belly up - not worth the stress.
It seems every website I go on shows the better flights with a :"partner" so code sharing may be inevitable. AIr France and Delta's flights out of Boston all seem to offer only an hour or an hour and 5 minutes for the connection to Rome . I know an hour is short for CDG but seems like no alternatives other than a 6 hour layover instead.
If we miss our connection, and booked all legs on Air France, would they need to put us on the next flight? Any other thoughts on this... not easy figuring it out with code shares and don't even get me started on trying to find a non-tortureous seat without paying triple the $$$.
