Sub-$400 flight deals to London from the West Coast are hard to come by so we recommend you grab this fare while you can. Jet set from Los Angeles to London-Heathrow for only $396 roundtrip on Virgin Atlantic or United Airlines as both airlines play monkey see, monkey do and price match. Departures open up in October with returns bookable through the end of March 2020. Better yet, this fare is available daily so you can take advantage of schedule friendly Friday departures and Sunday returns. As an example, I found seats departing LAX on Friday, November 8, with a return leg from LHR leaving Sunday, November 17, 2019. Peak holiday travel blacked out.

Take to the skies like Dumbo, and fly down to Disney with this terrific fare for late summer travel. If you can’t use your ears, United is here to help with flights from Newark to Orlando for only $117 roundtrip. Nonstop departures at this price can be found on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in September, with returns available into October. Searching United’s site, I was able to come up with an itinerary departing EWR on Wednesday, September 4, with a return flight from MCO on Tuesday, September 10, 2019. This does book into Basic Economy so only a personal item is included in your baggage allowance, if you aren’t sure which bags qualify have a look at our guide on How to Pack in Just a Personal Item Sized Bag.
