We’re all going bonkers for the crazy economy deals that keep popping up, but many of the very best offer a “tight squeeze”, which keeps us from pressing book. For a change, there are some fantastic deals out there today with plenty of legroom, and even a glass of champagne. If you’re in Europe and you’ve been eyeing a California trip, this may be just the ticket for you…

British Airways is aggressively trying to corner the Scandinavian market, and are offering incredible fares if you’re willing to start from Oslo or Stockholm. As a side note, if you have miles or can find a cheap ticket, we suggest heading to one of these places to pick up the deal, since savings will be greater than any prices from most other cities. In the deal you can fly Premium Economy-on a 787 Dreamliner or Airbus A380 via London for just £537 ($708) round trip. That’s incredible, and below standard economy prices!

Yes! If you have miles, you can 100% upgrade these bookings to business class, and enjoy a bed on the 11 hour flight to the West Coast for just £540 ($708) and some miles. You’ll be looking at around 30,000 miles each way, but for some it could be a great deal. Everything you need to know to upgrade can be found HERE.

  1. Sorry, given reality of (non)service with high probability of damaged IFE, no / inadequate food, dirty cabin, rude staff, seat choice charges it’d need to be ALOT more of a bargain (as in comparable to Norwegian’s X the pond fares)

  2. Doesn’t work. Every time I try BA website just says Error – Sorry, there seems to be a technical problem. Shame. Would have been a nice deal

  3. This deal Doesn’t work. When you try to book BA website gives an error page. Shame. Nice idea. But doesn’t work
