Cheapest Fare From NYC To London?

Sat Jul 10, 2010 11:30 pm

Hey all,

Just wanted to check up with you guys to get some advice about the cheapest airline to fly from NYC (Any airport) to London (any airport). The dates are the 23rd of July to 8th of August, with the days being flexible on either side. Right now what I've seen from looking around the web is a $1078 fare on Virgin. I was hoping to be able to find a cheaper fare than that, and maybe you guys either knew of a good booking site or of a good agent in New York who has access to good fares across the pond?

On a side note I know Kuwait Airways flies the route and I'd assume they are the cheapest, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to book with them, their website keeps giving me error messages - so if any one knows how to book with KU that'd be greatly appreciated too.

Thanks all in advance - this is for a friend who is traveling on a very strict budget and she will appreciate any input you aviation experts might have.

that was my first thought after reading AIs TR on KU.
I tried searching those days on the KU website and it came up with no flights from JFK on any dates... Weird. Don't know if it's a glitch or they really are not flying the route anymore.
Cheapest I found so far is DL at $1050 VS $1077
I'll keep lookin for u.

What about that name your own price on priceline.com? I've heard some people say as long as you don't really care about your flight you can get some great deals on international flights

No it has to be a glitch, because I looked on their time tables and they still fly the route, albeit not daily so we might have to switch dates around which is completely fine...

I have not had any luck finding anything cheaper. I have to say I am shocked at how high the prices are considering the competition! it is during summer and high season for travel.. Great for airlines but crappy for pax
