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 is normally one of the most expensive cities in Europe to fly to. But right now, low-cost carrier Norwegian is offering great deals to LGW from several cities in the US, including New York (JFK), Boston (BOS), Los Angeles (LAX) and Oakland (OAK). Slightly more expensive flights are also available from Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Las Vegas (LAS). All flights are nonstop and operated by the carrier’s 787 Dreamliner aircraft. This sale starts in January and has many dates available through March 2017. 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 Boston to London flight for example will drop from $358 to $304 round-trip.
