Traveling in style is always nice, especially when you head across the pond. A current sale on flights with JetBlue Mint, the carrier's business-class product, includes fares from various U.S. cities to London.

Some prices are as low as $2,200 round trip, a major discount from normal fares. What makes this deal extra appealing is that there is good availability during the Christmas and New Year holidays.

If your travel begins in New York City or Boston, you'll fly direct to London Gatwick Airport (LGW). For itineraries starting in other cities, the domestic segments will involve economy class seats. However, the flight across the Atlantic will be in JetBlue's business-class cabin.
