I know, I know – it’s September. You’ve just got the kids back to school and summer is truly over when it comes to work. So the last thing on your mind is booking your holiday travel, right?


Well, that’s the one reason why you should be booking your holiday flights right now – because it’s not on anyone else’s mind either! Especially if you want to travel to the US over the Thanksgiving weekend.

At the time of writing, direct Economy Class flights from LHR to JFK for 23-27 November 2016 are starting at £386 return on Delta and £421 on Virgin. Really want to save? Try KLM for as little as £366 via AMS (50 min stopover).

Those further north can fly direct from Manchester for £480 on United or Lufthansa.

Fancy the US West Coast? There are currently some great deals on return flights from LHR to LAX direct for the same time period for as little as £437 on Air New Zealand, with average return flights ranging between £475 and £571 on other major carriers.

For the northern-based flyers, if you don’t mind short stopovers, return flights from other UK carriers are available from MAN to LAX via ZHR on Swiss Air at £465 (1h 30min stopover) or MAN to LAX via FRA on Lufthansa (50 min stopover) for £468.

These are peak travel days in the US, so the earlier or later you go the better deals that can be had – but only if you book early!
