British Airways is trying to fill up its planes. The carrier is offering return fares from London to NYC from just £244 for last-minute travel.

Flights for this price are available as soon as next Tuesday, 10 March and are bookable right up until November.

Remember, these are BA’s lowest Economy Basic fares, which means checked luggage isn’t included. Upgrading to British Airways Economy Standard is £45 each way and gives you a checked bag, the ability to choose your seat 24 hours before departure and a higher boarding group.

To book, head to Google Flights and set the departure city as London Gatwick (LGW) and the arrival airport as New York (JFK). Next, set the airline to British Airways and scroll through the calendar to find the cheapest dates to fly, which are highlighted in green. Once you’ve got the flights you want, head to the British Airways website to make sure you earn your Tier Points and Avios and are ATOL protected.
