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.

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.

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.
