A mate wants to fly from LON (any airport) to NYC (any airport) on the 24th January and return on the 31st. So far, the cheapest deal I've found is £183.40, including tax, with NW via DTW. Naturally that's a great deal, but is there any even cheaper option? Just asking!

James,

Thats pretty much what it is going to be. However, I'm sure NW has you flying into DTW and then into EWR. IMO, it is still very early to buy these tickets. Ticket prices will drop on other airlines right after Christmas and then you will find UA, AA, BA and VS, all non-stop to New York for around the same price. It may even go down a few quid.

I'm holding off buying my tickets for a London trip in January. This works for me every year, without fail. Hope that helps.

cheers

Pe@rson,

the price is great. Still check out AI's fares, which are said to be the best. I give you one hint: call an ethnic (Indien) agent in Southhall. They have terrific deals normally.

And... no FR STN-LGA  Big thumbs up

Mrniji-FR has no plans to start STN-LGA...the last rumor that I heard was that they were going to start STN-FOK...

Note: FOK's airport code edited to meet Ryanair's standards

FYI....these type of questions will be moved to the "Polls and Preferences" forum by the moderators. They aren't "Civil Aviation" topics.

Mrniji-FOK is in Westhampton Beach, New York, on the East End of Long Island...about 80 miles, per Mapquest, from downtown New York City

£183.90!!

That's a great deal. What carrier is it? Considering some £55-£70 of this is tax I'd be pretty happy.

I can do you £134.00 plus tax on United?

£183 is extremely good. Air India usually seem to be the cheapest, but at the quiet times of the year all airlines will be clamouring for your business. Fares *might* go down slightly in January but IMX this is certainly not guaranteed like Mr Windowseat seems to claim. Bear in mind last minute fares (ie those bought in the last couple of weeks before a flight) are often more, so waiting until January to buy a ticket can actually work against you. Not every seat is sold at the same price.

If you *really* want to fly by the seat of your pants, tell your friend to book the day before on a Teletext holiday. Two week flydrive to Florida for £99, car, tax, flight included. Dump the car, get a JetBlue flight to NY....

Take the NW flight... chances are its an A330, and NW has a sizeable operation from DTW to EWR, with somewhere around 6-7 flights a day, should there be scheduling problems. Not to mention another 6 or 7 into LGA, and some more into JFK.

NW has always treated me well, and Im sure your friend will enjoy the service!! And besides, its a great opportunity to get a DC-9!

Often times, NW offers deals with an LON-DTW-EWR-AMS-LON routing, with NW flights out and KL flights back... though from an entertainment point of view, it might be worth it to sub EWR for JFK int hat situation... JFK gets KLs 777s.

Thanks for your replies.  Smile

7LBAC111: it was with NW via DTW. How much would yours come to once the tax has been included?
