Editor’s note: The team at The Points Guy loves to travel, but now is not the time for unnecessary trips. Health officials note that the fastest way to return to normalcy is to stop coming in contact with others. That includes ceasing travel. We are publishing travel deals because we should all use this time to think about and plan our next adventures. TPG doesn’t advise booking trips for travel until the late spring or early summer — and even then be mindful of cancellation policies.

Flying in premium economy is the perfect way to upgrade a trip and make it that little bit more special — especially when return flights to New York in World Traveller Plus (premium economy) with BA cost only £534.

Flights are available from November 2020 to March 2021, excluding the Christmas season. The extra perks like priority boarding, enhanced meal service and extra legroom will be sure to make for a more relaxing and comfortable trip. You also get a rather generous allowance of two 23kg checked luggage — perfect for filling with Christmas shopping or splurges in the new year sales.

If you really want to treat yourself, you can upgrade yourself nearer the time of travel to Club World for 24,000 Avios on off-peak dates or 20,000 Avios on peak dates.
