What's the Deal: First Summer Airfare Sale to London

Carol Sottili

British Airways is the first carrier to break the ice on summer airfare sales across the pond.

The sale fare is still not cheap -- $959 round trip (including taxes) to London Heathrow from Dulles or BWI -- but it's one of the first fares we've seen for under $1,000 (fares for nonstop service had been holding at about $1,100). BA's competitors on the route, United and Virgin Atlantic, have not yet matched, but I expect they will.

Fare rules: Travel Monday-Wednesday for lowest fares (Thursday-Sunday $30 more each way), and fly May 26-Sept. 3.

This is one of those short-lived sales that we've seen so often in recent months. The three-days sale ends at midnight Thursday (March 13).
