Flights like these would usually cost roughly €200 more

From Spain, you would either fly to London to then continue with either British Airways or American Airlines to the United States or fly with Iberia (even direct).

Meals and 2 pieces of luggage are included. These airlines do not have a premium economy section on the short feeder flights, so you’d be flying economy on those segments.

Search & Book

While the fare rules sadly do not state an expiration date for this deal, they do state that you have to fly between January 12th and March 1st, 2020. Your stay has to be 7 days to 3 months long. We recommend using Google Flights to find available dates for your route, and then booking the cheapest fare on our Travel-Dealz flight search. You can also book the flights directly at iberia.com.

Miles

The short feeder flights are issued in booking class K. The long-haul premium economy flights are issued in class T. Altogether, for a roundtrip (e.g. Madrid-New York via London) you’d roughly get:

Iberia offers a typical Premium Economy product. On its A330 and A340 aircraft, seats are aligned in a 2-3-2 pattern. With 94 cm legroom, your knees most likely won’t touch the seat in front of you. Compared to basic Economy Class, you will receive better meal service, priority Check-In, and boarding as well as a small amenity kit. You can find a more detailed review here. The author of this text was contempt with the overall product but criticized the expensive and unreliable onboard WiFi.

Information & Tips for USA

The USA offers many sights, natural wonders and cultural significance. Thanks to numerous airlines offering flights across the Atlantic, it is always pretty inexpensive to get there. Alternatively, you can also cross the Atlantic by boat.

Immigration, ESTA & Visa Requirements

The USA has one of the strictest entry regulations in the world. Most EU citizens citizens, among others, are lucky to be able to participate in the so-called Visa Waiver Program. If you get an electronic entry permit (ESTA)  for about 12€, you don’t need a visa for entry.

Best Time to Visit

Due to its sheer size, the perfect time to visit the USA varies greatly from region to region. In winter, Florida is very popular due to the mild temperatures. In the summer the West and East Coasts are flooded by tourists which drives up the prices for hotels and flights and during the Indian Summer in late autumn New England is a very popular destination. The hurricane season between July and September can be dangerous in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Florida and the southern states are regularly struck by these tropical storms. Blizzards occur from the East Coast to the Midwest during the winter months and regularly put air traffic and public life on hold.

Currency

The US dollar is widely used throughout the world and accepted as a currency in most tourist hotspots worldwide. That being said, carrying cash isn’t necessary in the US, all you need is a credit card! These are very common in the USA and are accepted pretty much everywhere without any issues. If you already have a credit card in your wallet, you should make sure that it does not charge a foreign currency fee if possible. Carrying a few dollars in cash doesn’t hurt though. You might need cash e.g. for the bus ticket if you want to buy it directly from the driver. Most of the time you even have to give exact change.
