British Airways is inaugurating it’s tie-up with American Airlines and Iberia by launching a fantastic, almost too good to pass up sale from 19 US Cities Direct to London.
These fares are simply fantastic!
Not only are the airfares almost too good to be true – British Airways are also throwing in 2 free nights at a hotel in London.
Here are some sample airfares:
- New York (JFK and Newark) $412
- Boston $488
- Philadelphia, Houston $518
- Washington, D.C., Baltimore $504
- Miami $618
- Chicago, Orlando, Tampa $638
- Atlanta $598
- Dallas/Ft. Worth $720
- Las Vegas $658
- Denver $558
- Seattle, Phoenix $638
- Los Angeles $613
- San Francisco $558
As usual – these fare calculations don’t include taxes and fees which will add about $188 to the ticket. Still, even with that added, these fares are GREAT.
I booked a fantasy trip to London from Chicago over Thanksgiving weekend and the grand total with airfare was $1500.
Also – something that’s not in the advert – if you login with your BA website account, you can save another $20 per person.
Here’s the fineprint for the sale:
