Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.
London-bound flights are typically some of the most expensive transatlantic routes. This might change due to Brexit, but for now Norwegian is offering nonstop round-trip fares from New York (JFK) to London (LGW) on its 787 Dreamliner starting from just $360. Keep in mind that Norwegian is a low-cost carrier and will charge you for certain things that are not typically an additional cost on other airlines. However, even with these extra fees, the total cost is still significantly lower than what other carriers are charging for similar flights.
Don’t forget that you can find even cheaper fares by completing your booking on the Norwegian version of the website (select “Norge” as the language). Prices will be displayed in the Norwegian Krone, but you can save money on flights this way — the New York to London flight costs $435 on the English version of the site, but only $360 (3,026 NOK) on the Norwegian version, and $363 on the British version (270 GBP).
Route: JFK to LGW
Cost: $360+ round-trip in economy
