New York to London is one of the most popular and sought-after routes in the world. Even with fierce competition resulting in dozens of daily departures, fares often still remain high — especially in business class.
Enter ITA Airways — the ‘new’ Italian flag carrier and its super-low round-trip fares from just $1,534 in business class. The routing includes a stop in Rome (FCO) both ways, with the return leg involving an overnight stay.
Still, it’s a small price to pay to save more than $1,000 (on average) over taking a nonstop flight.
Here are the details!
Fare Deal — Details
There doesn’t appear to be a rhyme or reason as to when these fares are available.
We found these dates by playing entering New York (JFK) and London (LHR) as the departure and arrival destinations, then checking only ITA Airways from the ‘airline’ drop-down menu.
- Class: Business
- Routes: New York (JFK) to London (LHR) via Rome (FCO)
- Dates: August through December 2023
- Fares: From $1,534 round-trip
These fares are available when booking directly through ITA Airways website. This is because ITA is part of the SkyTeam alliance, meaning you’ll be able to add your Delta or other SkyTeam frequent flyer number so you won’t miss out on earning miles.
The cheapest fares start at $1,534 round-trip.
Even in the height of summer in August, you can find fares for a reasonable $1,630.

Best Ways to Book
When booking a cash ticket, it’s always a good idea to use a travel rewards credit card that will compensate you for booking flights.
For example, The Platinum Card® from American Express will earn you 5x points on flights when booked through the Amex Travel portal or directly with the airline (up to $500,000 per year; then 1x points).
Booking through an online travel agency (OTA) such as Kayak or Expedia can potentially save you a few dollars. However, it’s worth remembering that if you need to make changes or cancellations, the headache that can often come with dealing with an OTA can make the money you saved seem insignificant.
Flying to London from New York in business class for anything less than $2,000 is worth getting excited about. So, this fare at just $1,534 is seriously worth considering if London is on your travel horizons towards the second half of the year.
