Are you interested in traveling to London? Then sprint for this deal from Icelandair, which will get you across the Atlantic in business class for less than $1,000 round-trip. This includes flights all across the country — even the West Coast!
Here’s everything you should know.
Icelandair’s business class seating more closely resembles domestic first class (and international premium economy) than the lie-flat business class options you’ll find on other airlines. However, you can’t even get premium economy seats to Europe for less than $1,000, which makes this an incredible find.
- Class: Business
- Routes: Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), New York (JFK), Portland (PDX), Seattle (SEA), Toronto (YYZ), and Washington, D.C. (BWI, IAD) to London (LGW, LHR)
- Dates: November 2023 to February 2024
- Rates: From $948 round-trip
The cheapest rates that you’ll find are on flights from New York (JFK) to London (LHR). Note the long layover on the return, which can be thought of as a free stopover in Reykjavik.
This fare sale is available on nearly all of Icelandair’s routes to the U.S. and even includes the holidays. Here’s what it looks like from Washington, D.C. (IAD) to London (LGW).
Probably the best part about this is that the West Coast is involved too, with the ability to fly from Seattle (SEA) to London (LGW) for just a little more.
Best Ways To Book
These flights can either be booked directly with the airline or via a third-party provider. As is typical, you’ll find the best prices when booking with a third party such as Priceline or Expedia, but you’ll want to be wary of using these services. This is because they can be much more difficult to work with in the event of changes or cancellations.
However, if saving money is most important to you, you can absolutely choose to use one of these online travel agencies. If doing so, use a card that maximizes your spending, such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which will give you 3x Ultimate Rewards on all eligible travel purchases.
If you opt to book direct instead, you’ll want to rely on a card like The Platinum Card® from American Express, which earns 5x Membership Rewards on all flights booked directly with the airline and via Amex Travel (up to $500,000 per year).Hot Tip:

This is an excellent deal on flights to Europe, even if you don’t want to visit London. We don’t expect this pricing to last for long, so jump on these prices now if you are interested!
