There’s been a nice price drop on this route of about $40 reducing roundtrip itineraries from LA to London-Heathrow to just $360 on American and British Airways. Departures open up in October with returns bookable through the end of March 2020. Better yet, this fare is available on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays so you can take advantage of travel-friendly weekend 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 and dates in April and May of 2020 are only $3 more.

Tickets at this price start to appear in late August with daily departures valid through the end of October available. As an example, I found tickets departing BOS on Wednesday, August 28 and returning from AUA on Wednesday, September 4, 2019. Perfect for an exotic escape overlapping the Labor Day weekend.
Plan your end of summer escape. Get in on this deal while it's still around because the travel window is shorting up as we make our way into August. Fly from Seattle up to Anchorage, Alaska for $154 roundtrip.

Fly nonstop from New York-JFK to Hamilton, Bermuda this late summer or fall for $288 roundtrip on American or Delta Air Lines.

As an example, searching American, I found seats departing JFK on Thursday, September 12, with a return leg from BDA on Sunday, September 15, 2019. Perfect for an extended weekend getaway.
Count yourself four-leaf lucky with this flight deal from United Airlines. Fly nonstop from the carrier’s East Coast hub of Newark to Dublin for only $359 roundtrip. Daily travel at this price opens up in late August and runs through December 17, 2019. As an example, I found seats at this price, departing EWR on Friday, September 6, and returning from DUB on Saturday, September 14, 2019. A fantastic price for late summer travel, but keep in mind this fare is for United’s Basic Economy bucket, which only includes cabin baggage. If you require a checked bag, you can upgrade to the standard Economy fare category for an additional $160. So it's best to pack light or hope you find a pot of gold along the way.
