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.
Right after JetBlue announced it would be flying from the Northeast to London, mainline carriers are now offering cheap fares to England's capital city. You can fly from New York (JFK), Boston (BOS), Newark (EWR), Chicago (ORD), Miami (MIA), and Philadelphia (PHL) to London with prices starting from $333 round-trip.
Flights are in basic economy and require you to pay extra for seat selection and checked bags (generally $60 each way).
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.
