Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Due to the high taxes and fees when departing the United Kingdom’s capital airports, it’s not very often that we find cheap fares to London on mainline carriers. However, we’re seeing a variety of discounted nonstop flights from Boston (BOS), New York (JFK), Newark (EWR), Chicago (ORD), Orlando (MCO), San Francisco (SFO), Denver (DEN), Washington DC (IAD), Miami (MIA), Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Austin (AUS) to London Gatwick (LGW) and London Heathrow (LHR) with prices starting from $369 round-trip.
Flights are on full-service carriers, so you can earn miles and enjoy a free meal on your flight. Do note that these are all basic economy style fares, so you will have to pay extra for a checked bag and seat selection.
To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or through an OTA like Priceline or Expedia.
