· American Airlines:
There is just another option to access New York City on American Airlines. The airline announced three daily nonstop flights between Charlotte and New York’s LaGuardia. They’ll be using CRJ-700 regional jets, but they will be equipped with first class seats up front. US Airways has had options on this route for quite some time, but we’re all about more options to get to one of the greatest cities in the world.
· Iceland Express:
We knew Iceland Express was doing pretty well, and now they’re telling us about some of their newest plans. Chicago to London Gatwick will start on June 10 of 2011, and flights will operate on Fridays only—at least for now. The fares will start at around $350 each way, and that includes most of the taxes associated with international travel. Boston flights will start on June 13 and will operate four times a week. Just remember that Iceland Express also will be offering a stopover in Reykjavik for all flights to the USA, so make some time to visit somewhere slightly different than London.
Even more news from Delta, but this time it’s not all about sunny destinations. The world’s largest carrier announced plans to fly to London-Heathrow from Boston and Miami. The airline is hoping to launch service at the end of March next year, but there are few rules and regulations that they need to go through first. American Airlines and British Airways have heavily controlled these routes, so hopefully this new competition will allow you to save a few bucks on your next trip across the pond.
