I think BHX flights are with American Airways, good price heat added



That's right but only return direct flight is with AA
Good price heat added, BHX flights are with American Airlines as BA don't fly from BHX anymore
Perfect timing for the start of Xmas shopping in New York!

Ha Ha Ha ............guess you don't follow the financial news...........
Can't find any from Birmingham for 276.
all must have sold out, as they are 3 grand now
or they have one stop flights for £311

What a silly statement. At least you have the decency to rarely comment.
Back to the deal.

Cheapest time to book November flights to New York is now as they have been dropping but will start to rise again soon. Went for a week last November and had a fantastic time relatively cheap (although we still spent a couple of grand on tickets and gifts etc that we needn't have, well it was a big occasion).

Free Staten Island ferry for great views of Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn Bridge and Statue of Liberty (go once during daylight and again after dark).

Go up the Rockefeller building about 90 minutes before dusk so you get to see the views in the day (Central Park and the iconic Empire State Building), see the sunset and then NYC by night. This saves both time and money as there is no need to visit again.

Half price bike hire through Groupon to enjoy the delights of Central Park. (think it cost about $18 each for 4 hours but we were enjoying it that much that we paid the fine for late return - about $9 an hour)

$4 ferry across to Brooklyn, have a burger from Shake Shack and then walk back across the World Famous Brooklyn Bridge (or you can walk both ways). This helps get rid of some of the calories I suppose.

See Jersey Boys on Broadway. They have a free lottery draw for every performance, just look on their website. We paid $27 each for our tickets, they should have been $85. Theatre was only half full so I guess that everyone who tried this way for tickets got them at this price. I saw about 20 names on the list when we picked our tickets up.

See the famous Radio City Music Hall Xmas show. This was incredible. Tickets can be pricey, as high as $350 each....or....you can buy 'restricted view' ones for $49. What restriction ? We were in the front row of the 2nd level, barely off centre stage next to the sound booth. We didn't even know that they were there.

However, we were very lucky with the weather for the week that we were there. Wall to wall sunshine and temperatures around 18 degrees apart from one day when it rained which became our shopping day. November usually has cold north easterly winds so just be aware of this.

Lastly, have a great time.

Where do you lot shop in NY? there's no outlets or anything. I went to one mall in New Jersey don't remember what it was called but it wasn't that great.

NY sucks overall imo. Weather isn't great and it's the only place in the world I've found people to be as rude as in London.
But I have to say, NYC has the best restaurants and food esp Pizza.

Miami/LA/SF is much better, great outlet malls, bargains.

I bought a £120 polo shirt I saw here for £22 in Miami, great weather/beaches too.

I used to shop in Woodberry Commons ( think you can get a bus from NY) bit of a trek but good value. Save your money tho, and fly to Chicago. With its beaches (USA's third coast, as Lake Michigan is the size of the North Sea and cleaner) and shopping
There's a mall near Newark airport called The Mills at Jersey Garden, it's not as good as Woodbury common, but it's a lot closer, around 40 mins on the bus from Port Authority bus terminal.

Yeah that's the one I went to. It was horrible lol. In comparison to California/Miami outlets.
Heat added

Just curious about the part where you "book ticket" and I havent entered any of my card details?

If I click the "book ticket" and I change my mind - Would I enter a commitment/contractual agreement if I do?

Good price on the flights but NY sucked in my opinion!
Worth looking at other BA routes, as they have a sale at the moment.
Lots of £39 flights to Europe.

being in Jersey its sale tax free.
The cost involved in getting to the outlets, you may as well just have a rumble around the 2x Century 21 stores & Macy's always seem to have a sale on.
I recommend One World Observatory - I done all 3 'towers' & that was my fav. Its quite close the bigger Century 21 store.

Century 21
I bought 4 shirts for $100 - Hilfiger, Nautical, French Connection, etc.
I spent about £500 in real money..... had to buy an extra suitcase
quick question these types of flight where you leave from X to Z via Y. Are you allowed to board on at Y instead of X just to take advantage of this price?
Nowhere near this price from Manchester for any of the dates unfortunately

Someone will come out with a longer better answer I'm sure, but the short answer is no. It can work if you dont go to Z and only go to Y, but you cant join the flight at Y only as far as I know.
Yes, that's right. If you don't board on the 1st leg, the rest of your flight will be cancelled.
1£ = $1.32, could hit parity by end of 2016

All top tips. Another couple to add are:

1) Go to one of the many tourist centres. They are packed with pamphlets and most have discount coupons attached.

2) Get a pass for the hop-on/off bus tours (reducing the price by using a coupon obtained above). The duration of pass you go for will depend on how long you go out there for but there is simply no better way to see the city, despite sounding really cheesy. I have been out there over a dozen times and after being recommended it on the 9th visit, I did it and saw and learnt so much more than I had all the previous times put together.

Two things though to bear in mind, not all bus tour guides are equal! If you think they are being a bit rubbish, get off at a stop and wait 10mins for the next bus to come along. Chances are they will be better. As always though with NYC, it is all about tipping out there. On the bus they will remind you of this, frequently. Once bored of the bus tour though, just use it as hop off/on transport if you are too tired to walk, which is really what you should be doing out there! Even with tip and initial cost, it will be a lot cheaper than catching a cab.

Could also hit £2, or $5 or $0.10....who knows.

scoff

could also hit double, who knows


Rather stay at home and binge shop the Black Friday deals and spend it all on myself like last year. oO
Good find. Will look tonight and book these in
British Airways don't fly from Birmingham Airport though... American Airlines and United Airlines do, which both go to New York.

Solid advice! Thanks siadwel
I visited NY in the early 1990s, liked it a lot especially eating was cheap.
Now I just can't be bothered with the US anymore, too much red tapes for tourists.
Rather spend my money in a country that welcomes tourists.
I can't find any of the £276 return flights now.

Getting an ESTA is hardly difficult, my last trip to the states I did the ESTA in a cab on the way to the airport, If you think the US has red tape you should try getting into Ben Gurion airport.

Many destinations require some form of red tape its all part and parcel of going somewhere different, I always thought the Indian Visa was a faff to get until a mate told me about the Visa clinics at the local Sikh temple. Great free curry whilst they process your visa although the worst was a border checkpoint in Columbia where there was an "exit tax" to be paid in cash.

Ha Ha Ha ............guess you don't follow the financial news...........



still way cheaper. Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein etc - £90 shirt here, $10 there. The 9% less $ per £ means jack sh**.
I'm going August 19th - 29th, for WWE summerslam (wrestling uber fan haha!). I paid £355, direct flights with Air India. Relatively great deal since it is during school holidays and higher demand. This £276 is also an amazing deal.

I've been to NY a lot and generally its cheaper than here for clothes and electronics - I buy all my Apple products over there (and as someone mentioned get them in Jersey with no sales tax). In NY Manhattan itself for clothes highly recommend Marshalls and TJ Maxx - I buy all my shirts there - good quality and brand names for around $20-30

Weather definitely starts to get a little colder in Nov and I think Sep/Oct are the best months since its still pretty warm averaging 70F. As for rudeness, sure any global city will be a little rude but I think NY is more direct and not necessarily any ruder - I certainly find London to be pretty rude just in a different way.
