We recently flew from Chicago direct to Rome on Alitalia. It was approx 9hrs and 20 minutes, received both hot dinner and snack, food was good.
Had English movies & Italian movies, which made the flight go faster.
On the flip side we flew back out of Milan to JFK that was also a 9+ hr flight, then got stalled in JFK. My son travels for business and always told me avoid JFK if possible, was he correct, Customs were a nightmare and eventually had to catch a cab to La guardia to get a flight back to Chicago. When we saw there were several hundred people waiting in line to chat with counter people at JFK, we made the correct decision called Delta and they said we could get out at La Guardia The airports are 11 miles apart and JFK counter people said there was a rain/weather delay for JFK. Hopped in a cab (cheaper that the shuttle bus) and were soon on our way back to Chicago.
