Hello all,
I thought I’d check here and see if anyone can help. Looking for any decent fares from Phoenix, AZ to London. My travel dates are March 6-13. Can go a day earlier, or stay a day later. A longer trip could be even better. I’ve found a ticket with one-stop at $715 and a non-stop on BA for $887.

I checked Some airline, travel, & some of the other sites listed here on the forum. What do you think? Any other deals coming up that anyone may know of?

Thanks!
Greg

Which ones did you check (so we do not repeat efforts)?

Hey Don,
Thanks for replying. I checked Travelocity, Expedia, ITA, flights.com. Just saw a non-stop on flights for $842 on BA Mar 6-14. NWA had a flight for $714. Just wondering if there is anything better, or if there are any deals coming out in the near future. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!
Greg

I see a consolidator at $697 those dates. It seems a lot for low-season, however oil is $82 per bbl currently. Previous years may have been a little cheaper, but I don’t know if you’ll do better than $700-ish for this one. Personally, if I was flexible and diligent, I’d probably sign up for fare alerts on this route with Bing and Farecompare, and give it another 3-4 weeks to see if it gets down into the $500s.

Just a quick update. I missed out on a non-stop on BA. The fare dropped from around $800, to $720. Appeared to be dropping almost daily. Then it jumped to $1068. However, I ended up booking a flight on UA for $697 total. That was about the best I could do. Didn’t want to wait much longer and take any more chances.

Thanks for all the help. Much appreciated Don!
