    I'm looking to fly out on monday for a week and come back weekend - cheapest flight I am finding via Kayak is around 450 mark for week ending may. After that summer season seems to be sky high.


    Anyone seen any good deals, my dates are flexi.

    Thanks!

    Hi all, just wondered if anyone has booked an April flight to New York recently? I'm on the verge and wanted to know if 520 is a good price? (I've never been, so have no clue)

    Thanks in advance!

    It's decent but not the lowest price I'd expect to find for April, especially not if you're willing to accept a stop-over (I'm assuming you're flying from London). That said, April's only two months away so you may have left it too late to get a bargain.

    Thanks all, sorry for the delay!

    Flying from London Heathrow... I've done a few more searches and it's now roughly 485 direct via AirFrance/Delta/KLM.

    Doesn't have to be November. Could be October or September.

    My target return fare would be around 450 on direct flights. Use Skyscanner to narrow down the choice of airline, but don't book from the site just use it as an indication of cost.

    Norwegian out of Gatwick may be cheapest, but they quote without baggage and I think they charge for refreshments on board. Many people bring home more than they take! A sub 400 flight can soon jump in price when you start adding extra bits on.

    BA seem to be coming in at around 508 on the weekend I looked at (422 if you start in Manchester and connect to Heathrow).

    You will often find combining flights and hotel on a BA web site booking (start at Top Cash back) saves a considerable sum. The same works with Virgin.

    Good advice from PeacefulWaters to use SkyScanner but book direct with airline.

    If you are going for a week, it can be cheaper to go midweek to midweek rather than weekend to weekend, eg a Tue/Wed departure. Make sure you stay a Sat night to get best fares.

    November is quite high season for NYC, especially at weekends, as it is the shopping trip season. Bear that in mind for hotels as well as flights.

    Worth checking the flight+hotel option for discounts as mentioned above, also consider Sep/October. BA currently have flights in Oct for 438, using American Airlines. In economy, there is not much difference between the offerings of the various carriers, with the exception of Norwegian as mentioned above.
