Flights during the U.K. summer holidays are usually at their most expensive — especially in premium cabins. That’s why these prices should be snapped up while they last. British Airways, Delta and Virgin Atlantic are competing for the transatlantic traffic and have slashed return fares to New York (EWR and JFK) and Boston (BOS) in business class to as little as £1,355.

Not only are both of those cities great places to visit in the summer months, but you will earn yourself a decent chunk of miles for whichever airline you choose.

Even better if you’re a BA frequent flyer, as you would earn 140 Tier Points each way. As a beginner to the game, this would earn you a total of 280 Tier Points, leaving you 20 away from making Bronze status.

While seat selection for Virgin and Delta is free for business-class passengers, you will be charged from £65 each way to select a seat if flying British Airways with anything less than Silver elite status.

The best way to find the right fares and dates is by using Google Flights and selecting British Airways as the airline. You can then scroll through the calendar to find the cheapest fares. Once you’ve got the dates for you, click through to the airline’s website to book.
