Norwegian to LGW nonstop from Oakland and WOW from San Francisco to London via Iceland offer deep discount ticket prices, but many of their real deals require flying bare bones with minimal luggage and a random seat. Plus bring your own food for the plane trip, although prices on board are competitive to airport food prices.

If you want or need a pre-selected seat assignment and free checked bag, then British Airways is competitive to all but the lowest Norwegian and WOW fares. Plus, you can still get some loyalty benefits with British Airways and Oneworld Alliance.
