If you’ve never flown F, it’s worth doing once.

But with RFS, it’s now only really worth doing F if you can get it both ways.

F is about £500 each more than J. Personally, I don’t think it’s worth it if J is Club Suite, and on the flagship LHR JFK route, it almost certainly will be CS.

Whichever cabin you end up booking, so yourself a favour and take the morning flight home. You can enjoy the premium experience on the day flight and get a good night’s sleep when you get home.

For a long flight, LA or Tokyo, I would say F is worth it. Not for the short flights to the East Coast though.

(Flew F on an A380 last year. It felt very tired and dated. Buddy dining is overrated. Not especially comfortable for the person in the second seat and not enough space. Also, a lack of privacy, as you see people across the aisle when facing backwards. The 380s don’t go to JFK anyway.)
