We’ve been promoting inexpensive flights from Europe to the USA regularly. And at first sight, this deal might not seem unusual. But it definitely is unique. First of all, it is offered by an airline that most travelers won’t link to the route from London to Los Angeles: Air New Zealand. And then the low fare for direct flights already includes one piece of checked luggage. The Star Alliance member is selling tickets at prices as low as £307/ €342.
In case you’ve been wondering about the unusual carrier and the fact that you won’t be asked to pay extra for checked bags: the route from London to Los Angeles (an vice-versa) is a so-called 5th freedom flight.
Search & Book
If the information we’ve extracted from the fare rules is correct, this deal should be available until July 22nd. The seasonal restrictions are as follows:
- Outbound flight
- September 16th through November 14th
- November 27th through December 8th
- Inbound flight
- September 16th through November 15th
- November 27th through December 12th
You’ll be able to find the most available connections in November. But if you’re willing to add a few bucks to the promoted price, December isn’t looking bad either. Use Google Flights (instructions). The tool will help you find the flights that could work for you. Also, you can let it forward you to the carrier’s website. In case you’d like to purchase your ticket directly from the airline. In case you prefer comparing prices first, we recommend using our Travel-Dealz flight search.
The minimum stay requirements are 3 days, and you could spend up to 12 months in the USA in case you’re immigration status allows for such an extended visit.
All tickets will be issued in booking class K. Unfortunately, this limits your possibilities of earning miles to four Star Alliance programs (United MileagePlus, Miles & More, KrisFlyer and Air China’s Phoenix Miles). Not even Air New Zealand’s loyalty program will award you for this trip.
