Beat the January blues by jetting off to the Big Apple in the new year. There are flights available for as little as £169 return with at least one leg with American Airlines, meaning you can earn those crucial Avios and Tier Points.

These particular fares with American Airlines and LEVEL mean that checking in a bag and selecting your seat will cost you extra. We have several tips for packing that might be useful if you’re planning on going to New York for a long weekend with only hand luggage. It’s also worth a reminder that on legs flown with LEVEL, meals will not be served.

This deal is another great example of how you can save big by starting your journey from mainland Europe. Getting to Barcelona doesn’t have to be expensive, especially if you use Avios on a Reward Flight Saver for as little as 6,500 Avios and £17 one-way. These super low fares even include 23kg of hold luggage.

To book, head to Google Flights and set the departure airport as Barcelona (BCN) and the arrival airport as New York (JFK). Once you’ve got the flights you want, head to the American Airlines website to make sure you earn your Avios and are ATOL protected. If your flight includes a sector with LEVEL, you will be directed to the Iberia website to book.
