Virgin Atlantic / US Airways: Philadelphia – London, England. $553. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

This is over our 6-cents-per-mile criteria, so it is not something we would normally publish. However, London is probably one of the most expensive cities to fly to due to their high passenger taxes and since our launch, we’ve never had a London deal that is under 6 cents per mile. With that, we are publishing this because it is a really good deal.
