All business-class flights between London and any American city are typically £2,000 to £3,000, depending on when you book and when you’re flying.
But as Gilbert Ott says, the coronavirus crisis has brought prices crashing down. Here’s how to snare a cut-price lie-flat deal and some of the routes on offer.
BRITISH AIRWAYS FROM LONDON
London to Boston, New York, Washington DC and Philadelphia in November 2020 – around £1,100.
London to Nashville in November 2020 – around £1,190.
London to Miami in November 2020 – around £1,300.
London to Seattle in September 2020 – around £1,500.
London to Los Angeles and San Francisco in November 2020 – around £1,500.
To take advantage of the BA deals, customers must book by March 17. BA says the advertised flight sale prices are discounted from the lowest price available in the 21 days before February 27, 2020.
BRITISH AIRWAYS CODESHARE OFFERS FROM PARIS
Paris to New York JFK via Madrid flying on Iberia and returning via Dublin on Aer Lingus in early June – £864.
Paris to Los Angeles via Dublin flying Aer Lingus and returning via Miami on American Airlines in early June – £1,210.
VIRGIN ATLANTIC DEALS
Virgin’s deals, says Gilbert, ‘pop up on a Friday and rarely make it to the weekend’.
They’re called ‘flash deals’ and currently include JFK and Boston in business for around £1,000 ‘for Monday departures from London in April and May and are cheapest for stays of eight nights or more’, says Gilbert.
They can be booked directly through Virgin or through Skyscanner.
Get in quick and you could fly business for less than flying premium economy.
