Fly Cheap: Business Class Airline Tickets Trans Atlantic for Under $1000 Return

Flying business or first class across the Atlantic has always been out of reach for many travellers. Ticket prices from New York to London normally start around $3000 and can easily reach $7000. Here are some top tips to reduce that airfare and maybe get you in to that premium class cabin.

Check out the new low-cost all business class options. MaxJet started flying a daily service between London Stansted and New York JFK in November 2005. It operates a 102 seat Boeing 767 with 60 inch seat pitch and provides a multi-course meal. On March 15 2006 they will begin a daily service from Washington Dulles to London Stansted. As a special promotion they are pricing the initial tickets at a tempting $999 return including taxes and fees. The normal airfare will come in as low as $1750 return all inclusive. The pricing works on a first come, first serve basis so book early to get the very best fares.

Passengers from the UK are also getting some good deals. Recently the airline had a January post-Christmas offer from London to New York at a very competitive £599 return.

Tip 2: Try First Class Eos Airlines

Note, London Stansted is situated north east of London. The Stansted Express train runs between Stansted and Liverpool Street station and the journey takes around 45 minutes.

If flying Trans-Atlantic business class, get price quotations from the more ‘off-beat’ airlines that you may never have considered. For example, Iceland Air flies from Europe to New York via Reykjavik and can be extremely competitive with business class airfares under $1700. It routinely undercuts the big boys by 30-40% in a bid to poach traffic to route through Iceland rather than fly non-stop.
