Air New Zealand $812, Virgin Atlantic $868 LAX to London Xmas and New Year’s weeks

Award tickets from Los Angeles to London are difficult to get at this late date for travel over Christmas and New Year’s holiday weeks on low level award rates. This sale is for travel during those two holiday weeks with Air New Zealand or Virgin America nonstop flights.

Air New Zealand $812.20 fares are available for departures from Los Angeles LAX on Monday December 28, Tue Dec 29, and Wed Dec 30 with returns from Wednesday January 6 and later. The low fare has widespread availability for 2016 dates, but there will likely be lower fares available in the next month or two for travel in 2016.

Virgin Atlantic $868 is the better fare for travel over Christmas week and for an earlier return after New Year’s Eve. Nonstop flights are $868 to $873 during the past two weeks of December.  Add a Delta flight from LAX to another USA airport connection like Las Vegas or Orlando for a Virgin Atlantic flight to London and the fare drops to as low as $831.
