Great price, JFK-LON flight

Orbitz has a Continental flight, JFK-LON, for $328 in June.

This is, by far, the cheapest I have found during the month of June.

Can anyone recall seeing anything cheaper than this out of JFK in the summer?? Should I jump on this flight now while I have the chance, or wait awhile??

Bag it now. It won't last and it's a steal!

Does anyone know what, if any, fees aren't included in a price quoted by Orbitz??

I don't know if there's a way to get an actual total price without buying them.

I am not saying this to burst your bubble. If you bought that ticket GREAT!!! I just paid $513 to Italy myself for travel next week.

I did see $85 each way to London on Virgin Atlantic but I did not do a search (I was looking for destinations in Italy). So for your dates it probably is the best fare. Also I did want to encourage people that are mindful of frequent flyer miles to always check out the carrier they need before booking. This morning I saw $493 on Orbitz for Florence. I went on American and when I used their lowest fare option they gave me a higher fare. WHEN I USED THE SCHEDULE option though I got $513. This was only $20 more than the orbitz fare but I got 7,500 mileage miles. That gives me a free flight to Hawaii if I choose.

Just a thought.

Kelston get online and get those theatre tickets early!!!

Just go through the Orbitz purchase process up to the last confirmation prompt, you'll get the total price.

Kelston you might also want to check out Iceland air and smarter living.com

A number of airlines are having promotionals that end with a purchace date Oct.21.

I don't know where you live but I am in Manhattan myself. I find Newark much more convienent. Continental uses Newark as a hub so I bet that would chop some more off of that fare.

Just trying to help you Kelston if you already booked Never mind. Still a deal!!!

These are Continental codeshare flights operated by Virgin. So if I were you I would also check directly with Virgin on their website.
Regardless, it's a great price, but it will only last as long as the Virgin sale is on, so check with Virgin.

Good Luck!
