If you fancy heading to Europe in luxury, now’s the time to book. Several carriers are offering round-trip business class flights to London for around $2,000, as flagged by The Points Guy.
There are several departure cities available, but the price can be a little higher depending on your timing.
Bottom line? Finding a business class flight for this low is rare, so let’s dive into the details.
Fare Deal — Details
Many U.S. and international carriers fly to London and are offering deals on business class flights throughout 2023. Although there’s plenty to see around London, it’s also the perfect start-off point to venture into the rest of Europe.
- Class: Business class
- Routes: Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), New York (JFK), Toronto (YYZ), and Washington, D.C. (IAD) to London (LHR)
- Dates: April to December 2023
- Rates: As low as $1,900 round-trip, though most flights price out around $2,200.
When you’re searching for these fares, you’ll need to play around with your dates. There’s also considerable availability after the summer rush, beginning in September 2023.
We recommend using Google Flights as this search tool will allow you to see a broad selection of dates.
Here are some sample deals:
- Boston (BOS) to London (LHR), nonstop on United Airlines for $2,223 in Polaris business class
- Chicago (ORD) to London (LHR), via Warsaw (WAW) on LOT Polish Airlines for $2,519 in business class
- New York (JFK) to London (LHR), via Lisbon (LIS) on TAP Air Portugal for $2,273 in business class
- Washington, D.C. (IAD) to London (LHR), via Keflavík (KEF) on Icelandair for $2,351 in business class
You can find a reasonable round-trip ticket on nearly every airline alliance to London. No matter where your loyalty lies, you should find a decent deal.
Be flexible with your dates. Keep in mind that many tickets may have a length of stay or Saturday night stay requirement in order to find the lowest prices, and Wednesday is typically one of the cheaper days of the week to fly.
Hot Tip: You may also spot similarly priced flights to London from Boston or New York with JetBlue in Mint!
Best Ways To Book
When searching through Google Flights, you’ll almost always be given the option to book through the airline, and you can earn 5x Membership Rewards points with The Platinum Card® from American Express on flights purchased directly with the airline or with American Express Travel (up to $500,000 per year).
You may also want to consider using the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, as this earns 3x Ultimate Rewards points on all travel purchases, even those not booked directly through an airline. While you could book through an online travel agency (OTA) like Expedia or Travelocity, note that you may run into difficulties should a flight become delayed or canceled.
It’s often tough to find round-trip business class flights to Europe for under $3,000. Many of these flights are close to $2,000 and are certainly a deal worth booking. Business class cabins come with upgraded meals, lounge access, better inflight entertainment, and, of course, lie-flat beds (in most circumstances), allowing you to arrive in Europe well-rested to kick off your vacation.
