Normal coach fares from New York to Ecuador run about $600 and they rarely go on sale. If you want to go to the Galapagos too, LAN’s fares from Guayaquil are about $350 roundtrip. You can also redeem 7,500 British Airways Avios each way to Galapagos from Guayaquil. There are no premium class seats between Guayaquil and Galapagos or within Ecuador — only coach. But we think you will survive for the 722 mile trip if you decide to go.
