Key factor: insanely fun novelty…
Other than aboard a Gulfstream G-VI SP, not many people get to cross an ocean in a bed on an aircraft with only a handful of people. Ok, maybe a couple handfuls.
British Airways operates easily the most unique and novel flight across the Atlantic Ocean, using a custom configured Airbus A318 to shuttle passengers between New York and London City Airport. The entire plane has a mere 32 seats.
If you ask even the fiercest critics, it’s the closest feeling to flying across the pond in a private jet, and with an amazing staff to passenger ratio, the service is something to experience at least once. Right now there are deals from London starting at just £1595 to try it for yourself…
The Speedbird 1 & 2 Deals
In many sales, flights on Speedbird 1 & 2, the former Concorde flight numbers, are restricted. British Airways is selling a great deal to Nashville, with flights from London going for £1595. At least for now, you can select London City Airport (LCY) as your departure airport, which allows you to route via New York in both directions, before connecting onto an American Airlines business class flight onward. If you want to just go to New York, the price is around £1900. Nashville is a really cool city, absolutely worth exploring.
The Dates You Can Travel
These deals are available almost exclusively in July 2019 for departures on a Tuesday or Wednesday. To get the lowest price, you’ll need at least a six night stay. Nashville is a short easy flight from most of East Coast and the Midwest, so this can be a great way to get to the US in style, and then head elsewhere.
How To Book These Deals
These deals are easy to find on Google Flights, but hard to book with British Airways. The best way to book is to pull them up on Google Flights and book via American by following the easy links, or pull them up on your favorite online travel agency, like Expedia or Skyscanner. Enjoy the trip. Here’s a British Airways A318 Speedbird 1 review, just in case you want a sample..
