Wherever you are in the world, counting down from 10 to a glass of champagne to toast the New Year always feels good, but New York just does it a little “extra”.

Team Virgin or Team BA, it doesn’t matter. Both have round trip business class direct to NYC from £1222 on perfect dates to take in the New Year, and perhaps just before too.

These direct flight between London and New York are available from December 31st to April 9th, 2020, giving you the option of a nice spring trip to New York, or a full on New Years Eve extravaganza. British Airways is offering these flights for departures on any Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, while Virgin Atlantic’s lowest prices are only available for Wednesday departures.

In both cases, you’ll need to stay the weekend, returning on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. A longer stay is totally fine, but you can’t turn around before you’ve stayed at least a weekend in New York.

The best way to know if you’re booking the right BA plane is to seek 777’s instead of 747’s and look at the seat map before finalizing your booking. If it has just 4 seats across in a 1-2-1 layout, then you’ve got the right plane.
