Delta / United – $590: Washington D.C. / Chicago / New York – London, England. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A good sale for nonstop service to London. London is probably one of the hardest cities to do deals to:

  • Heavy business travel – so the need to discount to fill up seats is low
  • High taxes – at least $160 (departure tax + UK passenger charge) makes it difficult to do deals. After taxes and fees, Delta and United is taking $360 of this.

We found availability from:

  • Washington D.C. [IAD]
  • New York [NYC]
  • Chicago [ORD]

This doesn’t meet our 6 cents per mile criterion. Norwegian will have it in the mid $400s sometimes out of New York, factoring their fees for luggage and advanced seat assignment, you will pay about the same. From DC and Chicago, Icelandair will sometimes have this in the mid 500s but will require a connection.
