Planning travel, little things mean a lot more. Big things too, like trading up for a better experience in transit, for extra peace of mind.
Thanks to a great fare from Oneworld airlines American and British Airways, and Skyteam airlines Air France and KLM as well as Virgin, you can trade up to the comforts of business class from Europe to NYC for just £923 round trip, or LA for £1100. And yes, these deals work well into 2021, even into the second half the year.
Business Class To NYC
New York City will always be one of the world’s greatest. Not even a pandemic could keep the charm out. With any hope, by mid-year, most people will be vaccinated and travel will no longer be the nightmare that it is today.
When it comes time to explore NYC, and in case you missed the Black Friday Deals, there’s a new opportunity to fly business class on the “cheap” with £923 round trip fares on Oneworld or SkyTeam. You can fly direct on American, or Air France, or via Amsterdam or London with British Airways or KLM.
If you’re not based in Paris, it may be worth holding out for some December holiday sales (wink, wink), but if you are, or want something to book today, these are a great opportunity to secure serious comfort at a fraction of the usual price.
When You Can Travel
Unlike many exceptionally good airfare deals, these go from the beginning of 2021 through the EOS – which is airline nerd for “end of schedule”. You can basically fly any date that is for sale in 2021 so far, which takes you up to November or so.
Shockingly, in a good way, there’s no minimum stay requirement on these fares, so you could use them for an exciting long weekend just as easily as you could use them to stay much, much longer.
How To Book These Flights
These flights can be booked with American Airlines, Air France, Delta or via your favorite online travel agency. In most cases, British Airways, KLM and Virgin Atlantic have similar prices, but their prices for the exact same flights are a bit higher.
