Bottom Line

It is really rare to see deals across such a wide range of airlines. American and British Airways are members of Oneworld, United is a member of Star Alliance and Virgin Atlantic has a partnership with Delta, which is a member of Skyteam. There is a wide range of flights to choose from; if you already know your travel date, act fast!

With this wide range of available flights, this could be a good opportunity to take the famous BA 1 and BA 2. These flights are operated by British Airways’ all-Business-Class A318 from London City Airport (LCY) to New York (JFK). However because BA 1 has a short stop at Shannon, when you want to take this flight do not check the nonstop only option.
