Honestly, for the short flight to New York premium economy is more than enough. If you don’t agree, you can always upgrade with Avios for just a bit more cash and about 22,000 points one way to compare. British Airways has some ultra attractive premium economy deals to New York (and quite a few other cities too), and at this price, you’re getting a bargain most economy travellers don’t! Here’s how to get in…
British Airways has launched incredibly low premium economy offers at prices you’d hope for from economy! Even better, you can use Avios to upgrade one way, or both ways. FYI: upgrading from Europe to the USA is cheaper than the other way around, and with flights as short as 4 hours 56 minutes coming from the USA back to London, there’s hardly enough time to enjoy a business class cabin anyway.
Our friends traveling for miles also found some great deals to various other cities, which you can check out here.
The Dates You Can Fly
These offers are available at the absolute lowest prices from March 9th-25th, April 13th to May 14th, and then October 26th through the end of the year. Hot tip: as a New Yorker, May and late September/early October are my two favourite times of year to visit.
In a fantastic twist, a three night stay is all that’s required to lock in the lowest fares, which makes these perfect bargains for a spontaneous long weekend. It’s definitely worth looking at pairing them with flight and hotel offers, if you happen to be travelling with another person.
