I would take AZ in business class on the 777 and be hesitant on the 767. Milan Malpensa (MXP) can be a zoo when lots of flights arrive and the immigration lines stretch out. Also, the AZ lounges at MXP aren't world beaters, though better than waiting at the gate.
If you can arrange it, think about CO on a routing of BOS-EWR-LIS. You have no mid-trip immigration on the outbound and your connections are in Newark. The CO 757 on the flight should work fine in BusinessFirst. Lots of flights BOS-EWR, so you can get whatever amount of connection time you want.
Next cruise I'll check with you all before I make a move!
So glad I found Cruise Critic. Full of wonderful, helpful people!
If you're on a 757, lucky you as they are now rolling out the AVOD systems in BizFirst.
