These fantastic deals are available all throughout 2019, with departures on select days. You’ll do best if you actually use the more roundabout routings, rather than try to route directly. The very best prices are for departures on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays, depending on the month. An exact 7 day stay brings the lowest prices. So a leave on Monday, return on Monday will generally bring the lowest prices. Longer or shorter will cost around £50 extra.

  1. There seems to be some availability to do INV > HEL > LAS (via LHR & JFK) which would bag 960TPs for £1,227

  2. Thanks for sharing GTSP! £1,080pp for my preferred dates for two (INV-LHR-JFK-LAX and LAX-BOS-LHR-INV).

    I’ve placed them on hold though will probably order in the next hour or two as i’m aware the “hold” feature is a bit of a chocolate teapot.

    Just hope Qatar don’t roll-out a massive sale on the 17th…

  3. Hi

    I live in London. If I book this flight from INV can I skip that part and begin at LHR?

    Sorry if it’s a silly question 🙂

    1. All good! Once you skip a flight, the rest cancels. Short answer: no, you can’t skip.

      Short synopsis: It’s totally worth taking a 45 min flight to save £££££’s.
