In a rare fare deal, we’re seeing one of the most unique routes and products in the world. British Airways flies a narrow-body Airbus A318 from London City Airport (LCY) to New York (JFK) — an all-business-class configuration. On the LCY-JFK segment, the flight — number BA1 — makes a stop in Shannon, Ireland (SNN) to refuel. There, you’ll go through US customs and immigration so you arrive in the US as a domestic arrival. You can read a full review of the flight experience here.

Flights on this route typically exceed £2,500 for a single passenger. As part of BA’s fare sale, we’re seeing return flights on the route from £2,019 for two people, which works out to £1,009 return per person. Alternatively, if you only want to book for one person, it’ll set you back a — still reasonable, for this route — £1,498.

To book, head to BA’s site and enter LCY as your origin and JFK as your destination and set the number of passengers to two. Set your search for August and September and then click through to book directly with BA.
