British Airways and Virgin Atlantic will soon be operating each of their new business-class products from London (JFK) to New York (JFK). Currently, there are some great fares for you to experience everything that British Airways’ Club Suite and Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class suite have to offer this New Year.

Yes, flying over the Christmas and New Year period is often one of the most expensive times to fly, so finding return flights in business class to include New Year’s Eve celebrations from as little as £1,348 is exceptional.

Virgin Atlantic plans to be operating four of its daily frequencies to New York with the newly delivered Airbus A350 aircraft, which are fully kitted out in the airline’s brand new Upper Class suite. All you need to do is make sure that it says ‘Airbus A350’ in the details of the flight you want to book to make sure you get the A350 and Upper Class Suite. Head over to Virgin Atlantic to book.

If your loyalty lies with British Airways, it’s not quite as simple to bag yourself the Club Suite on this route. The airline has opted to fly its A350s, complete with the new Club Suite, to Dubai (DXB), Toronto (YYZ), Tel Aviv (TLV) and Bangalore (BLR). Instead, to keep up the competition, BA has planned to retrofit the Club World cabins on some of its older 777s so it can introduce the Club Suite on select routes to New York (JFK). When you’re booking, make sure you opt for a 777 and then click through to check the seating configuration. If it is like BA177 and BA174 below with only four seats across, then you’ll be flying the Club Suite.

  • BA177 London (LHR) 1:00pm Departure ⇒ New York (JFK) 4:10pm Arrival

  • BA174 New York (JFK) 6:50pm Departure ⇒ London (LHR) 6:50am Arrival

However, some routes operated by the 777 still show the Club World seating plan with 2-4-2 configuration, meaning that this is not the Club Suite.

Head over to British Airways to book.

There are slightly cheaper fares if you want to risk booking with an online travel agent (OTA), but we always recommend booking directly with the airline for your peace of mind.
