Business class to New York for less than a grand is always worth it, even if the departure airport isn’t in the UK. These crazy low fares, which start from £975, begin in Berlin (TXL), Frankfurt (FRA) or Munich (MUC) and go to New York (JFK) via London (LHR) with British Airways. The deal is perfect if you’re chasing status and Tier Points, as this route will earn you a whopping 360. That could be enough to maintain your status for another year or even bump you up into the next elite level.

This fare is a perfect example of when starting your journey in Mainland Europe can save you money. One obvious downside is having to get to the departure city. But, with the many low-cost airlines that fly from the UK to these major German cities, as well as British Airways Reward Flight Saver fares, it shouldn’t be too costly or bothersome to start your journey from Germany.

To book, head to Google Flights and enter TXL, FRA or MUC as the departure airport and JFK as the arrival airport. Select business class as the cabin of travel and toggle through the calendar to find the cheapest fares highlighted in green. There was only one set of dates available in November and a few in early April — you’ll need to act fast if you want to secure yourself a seat!
