Currently, the 3 major US airlines and their partners are posting very good fares to London for spring and summer travel. The New York and Boston prices are relatively standard for March/April flights, but getting those same prices from across the country is a pleasant surprise! Norwegian is also matching these prices in some cities as well.
Most sale fares include direct flights one-way or round trip. Current spring fares in basic economy (main cabin in parenthesis):
- Boston: $306 Norwegian, $339 ($449) American, United, Delta
- New York: $325 ($415) AA, United, Delta
- Orlando: $347 ($457) AA
- Los Angeles: $349 ($459) AA, UA
- Miami: $360 ($500) AA
- San Francisco: $363 ($483) AA, UA, DL, Norw
- Chicago: $365 ($509) UA
- Tampa: $365 ($505) AA
Summer fares from some cities are only mildly more expensive, with basic economy running $40 – $120 higher on select dates in high season.
- Boston: $375 ($474 main cabin) AA
- Los Angeles: $462 UA
- Orlando: $480 DL/Virgin Atlantic ($570)
- New York: $490 ($480) DL
Many of these deals are available with Ultimate Rewards points from the Chase Sapphire Reserve. Using the Chase travel portal fares are as low as 23,000 UR for basic economy or 32K for main cabin.
Booking these fares can be slightly tricky. Avoid Delta’s partner AIr France, as they reprice several hundred dollar higher than advertised. Likewise, American will sometimes reprices up to $50 higher, but not consistently. The best options for consistent prices this time are Orbitz, Expedia, and other online travel agencies.
- Jan – May for “spring”, select dates June-September for “summer”
- Minimum stay varies, though usually 7 days
