East Coast to Europe via British Air

Hotwire Travel Ticker gave me an email this morning - 2 days sale from East Coast to quite a few European destinations. I am looking at Philly to Rome, stop at Heathrow, round trip: $530! Mmmmm... but all the horror stories y'all write about Heathrow?!

No one loves Heathrow, no one loves BA (though some of us used to) but thousands fly BA and thousands fly through Heathrow every day without any problems. Your other choices flying into the UK have their own problems.

If you like the price, such a tiny fraction of your life will be spent on the airplane or in the airport that you ought to go for it.

I should have mentioned in the title that its a sale. And mentioned it for the benefit of others.
Frankly, USAir has a non-stop flight for only $100 more...that way I can just check my luggage, settle back and arrive in Rome when it happens.

Who is this British Air - is it part of American Air?

If it's a big savings, I'd take it, otherwise no if that's not your final destination. So when actually can you get a $530 RT fare from Philadelphia to Rome, that's what I'd like to know. Does that include all taxes, etc?

After reading the link that Gardyloo gives you, read this thread on Flyertalk:

flyertalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=711312

Then check if the fare includes all taxes and fuel surcharges. For a PHL-LHR-FCO roundtrip, tax/fees is about US$130. BA also has a fuel surcharge of $180.
