Yes, including tax. Shhh I might buy these and tell my husband later. Maybe not, but I'm so tempted!

I assume $973 is for both people, not per person?

Yes, this is a good price - probably as low as you could get from DFW.

Is this the AA to Europe sale you're talking about?

I've been researching London flights and with all taxes those are superb prices.

YK - Your assumption is correct. That would be roughly $486 per person. Found the rate for Jan. at British Airways website.

I'd say it is good. I just booked a trip on BA for next April from Washington, DC, and with taxes and fees the R/T cost was a little under $700 (and that is from an airport which has LOTS of market competition to London) so go for it!

Hi C,

That's a very good price for RT if it is nonstop.

I guess the BA price is a bit lower than AA then?

In case you're a mileage hoarder like me, most DFW-based folks are of the AAdvantage program. Flying AA trans-atlantic DFW-LGW will get you almost 10,000 miles; whereas flying BA will give you BA miles but NO AA miles.

Anyway, if you're interested in banking AA miles, it may worth paying an extra $50 or so to fly AA instead of BA to get those 10k miles.

CDG-

To get that price ($486) on BA - you'll be leaving and returning mid-week.

I priced a mid-week itin on AA.com DFW-LGW, and the grand total is $492. So the price difference between the 2 airlines are minimal.

Obviously, many people argue that service is nicer and better on BA than AA; but to me, getting those miles are more important than anything else.

Thanks YK! I had not even checked with AA when I found that BA price. Still haven't talked to DH, so hopefully it'll be there if he gives me the green light. Getting those AA miles would be quite nice. We've been discussing (for our anniversary trip) Mexico for the most part, with a little chatter about Paris, until he asked, "what about London?" last night. Of course being the travel fiend I am, I looked into it.
