Although the Black Friday sale claims that airfares for a seat in the Upper Class cabin start at £999.00, fares between London Heathrow Airport and New York are as low as £985.00 — which is equivalent to almost $1,313.00 in United States dollars — as shown in the following example if leaving London on Friday, February 26, 2021 and returning from New York on Friday, March 12, 2021…

For flights seated in the economy class cabin, you can score a round trip ticket between London Heathrow Airport and Tel Aviv for as little as £235.24 — which is equivalent to slightly greater than $317.00 in United States dollars — but be aware that is an Economy Light fare, which does not include a checked bag and an opportunity to choose which seat you prefer.
