We flew Delta for our Honeymoon to Europe and it wasn’t too bad! My husband is 6’3″ and he was comfy. 🙂

I would say Continental was great to London but not sure if they fly to Scandanavia same with Virgin. Both are comfy and service is great.

I flew Icelandic Air and going to Germany wasn’t too bad.  Coming back the flight was full and it was crowded, and there was hardly any room. 

When i flew there on Continental it was a dream, there was ton a ton of leg room.  I’m only 5ft4″ so it was pretty small on IA.

I also recommend British Airways, they have amazing service and lots of space. Continental is ok, the space is not huge but i’ve seen worse

I’m usually a Continental fan for domestic flights, but my absolute favorite airline ever is Lufthansa. The last time I went to Europe we used them and absolutely loved it. Despite being in coach, we were treated like we were in first class…warm towelettes to wipe our hands before all of our meals..etc. I took an overnight flight and woke up in the middle of the night to a flight attendant bringing little pieces of chocolate around. LOVE.

I’ve flown Lufthansa and Iberian Airlines, and both were pretty comfortable… or, at least, as comfortable as you could expect when flying for 6+ hours!  Good customer service, too!

Sadly, pretty much all European airlines are better than the domestic ones. I would never fly overseas with American, Delta or United. British Airways and Virgin are both great. I flew SAS about 20 years ago and was a very happy customer, but that was a long time ago. I’d left my walkman (man, I’m showing my age here) on my seat and they found my address in Turkey from my seat number and mailed it to me! Lufthansa and Air France are also ok, my only gripes being Lufthansa doesn’t feed you very well (I have a big appetite) and Air France tends to not load the baggages in close overlays, meaning the bag follows you a day behind.

SAS is fine.  I’ve flown with them several times and didn’t have any complaints, although I was flying from London to Norway, which is only about a two hour flight.  What I think you need to remember is that all of these airlines use the same planes (i.e. Boeing 737 etc) and the layout is going to generally be the same.     I’ve flown on more airlines than I can possibly count and the only thing that’s different is the service level, not the amount of leg room.  Some airlines are friendly than others, with better food, in-flight entertainment, and amenities, but ultimately, the leg room is about the same.
