If you’re looking for great fares to England this year, you’re in luck. Norwegian Air is hosting a London sale, with excellent prices on one-way flights. The lowest is $120 from Boston, but 9 total cities have fares below $200, from across the USA. This is a great deal for reaching Europe, and can be used for positioning for other flights, hopping to another country to see multiple locations, or simply as an affordable way to reach London. Be aware: these are flights to London Gatwick, not Heathrow, so if you are planning to fly onward to another city plan for which airport you’ll need to originate from.
These are Norwegian’s basic economy, which includes a carry-on but not meals or seat selection. These options are available for purchase separately or by buying up to a main cabin economy fare. Sale fares are available through most of the fall, but specific dates differ by city; see the “travel Dates” section below for specifics. To take advantage of these great prices, you’ll have to buy tickets before 11:59 PM on May 5th in your local time zone, so act quickly.

Instead of just publishing their fares, why not remind readers that it is very easy to watch fees rack up with airlines such as Norwegian Air, especially if you choose to eat, want to select a seat, and heaven forbid bring a bag, which some of these airlines charge for on a per-segment basis.
These work for some, but I am not a fan of three-card Monte when it comes to money leaving my wallet.
I generally list the specifics for any basic economy fare I post, though I let this one stand on its own. But I am completing a comprehensive guide to all of the major BE fares for trans-Atlantic flights, so you have one page to compare what’s offered from each airline. It will be up soon, and I look forward to your input!
Part of the business plan of these airlines (and increasingly the majors) is to have so many possible fees for this and that such that customers can’t keep track of them all and therefore end up paying one or two such fees. In a different time, this would have been held up as underhanded at the very least and detestable in general by a more selective public.
Unless you have a plan for an award flight in the other direction, these are rarely a good deal. The major carriers all have cheap RTs to Europe.
For example, there are a lot of RTs to Europe on United for $250~$400 in Basic Economy. It’s bookable as an open-jaw as well (I’m eyeing an EWR-BCN/MXP-EWR itinerary for about $370, both flights direct). Meals are included, and I believe there’s no weight limit on the carry-on. Seats will cost you ~$50 RT, and a checked bag for you (and a companion) is included if you pay with the Explorer card ($95 AF) and the first leg each way is on UA.
