If you’re already planning your summer vacation for next year, London may be a great option. Right now the European partners of major US airlines are offering great prices for summer flights in June and July. By great I mean “essentially the same price as dead of winter”. For most cities here, prices for summer flights usually range from $800-$1,000+, so here’s a chance to save big. Most deals are offered by Virgin Atlantic (Delta partner), with some British Airways and Finnair (American) options.

  • New York (JFK): $355 basic economy / $495 main cabin (British Airways, Virgin Atlantic)
  • Orlando: $405 / $545 (VA)
  • Los Angeles: $449 / $589 (BA/Finnair)
  • Boston: $464 / $604 (BA,VA)
  • San Jose, CA: $479 / $619 (BA/FA)
  • San Francisco: $539 / $679 (VA)

Note that main cabin buy-up for all routes is $140, but with the Los Angeles routes main cabin at that price is only offered on specific dates and flights; you might have to do some searching to find that price from LAX. These are all summer (June 21 on) fares, but you can save a few bucks if you are able to fly earlier in the month.

These are available by booking direct, but maybe not with OTAs – search Google Flights or SkyScanner and then click through to buy. I can’t predict how long these prices will last, so if you’re ready to book an English vacation for next June/July, book now.
