What is reasonable price for air Boston-London

Starting to research for April 2005 trip to London. All airlines have airfare at about $500 - this seems a little high to me. But I have nothing with which to compare. Thanks.

It's about right. If you go in March, you may find it for about $350. If you go in June, about $700. So, there's something you can compare to.

Fares are generally a little cheaper from NYC, but you have to add the expense and time of getting down there from Boston.

rkkwan is right. We paid around $700 once for July. We flew American from Boston for $330 back in 2001 and now on British Airways for $89 each way and it was valid from any of their gateway cities but this time we chose Philly instead of Boston.
Sign up for email alerts from the various airlines. I just got one this morning from American that has air from New York-London for $333 and includes hotel but you have to travel by April 2.

There are many fares listed under $500 if you don't travel on Friday and under $400 if you can travel Monday through Thursday. AA had flights for $396 and Icelandair has flights in the $420 range. Look at itasoftware.com and use the month long search function. It will show all the different airlines and prices in a calendar format.

We've flown Boston-London three times with Virgin Atlantic and have been very pleased. Round trip fare for May was $342 - started shopping in December, fares went down in January or February, then up and up.

Booked a fabulous package (Hotel/Air) with Priceline (you can choose hotel and flights) for September, so you may want to check on those for your dates.

Thought I'd revive this as I'm shopping for reasonable (?) Boston-London fare for the end of August '05. I think I'm kicking myself cuz when I checked a few weeks ago, I found Virgin's Premium Economy available for $788 and when I did a search just now...it was $1800 EACH.
I have subscribed to Virgin's e-mail alerts, and am starting to do the Expedia, etc type of search - but I'm a newbie at that kind of searching. More ideas, anyone?
