To book:
1) Search for suitable dates on Skyscanner or TravelUp (example dates are provided below). If searching via Skyscanner ensure TravelUp appears as one of the booking agents.

I use travelup a lot, they’re reliable


No-one should be going near dodgy OTAs. It's downright insanity to give up control of your booking to a third party for the meagre savings they offer. Especially as BA will give you double the difference back in vouchers anyway if you book direct.
Just a word of warning when you use third party to book your flights. I have just booked flights via Kiwi.com to SF, flying with Virgin Atlantic. 5 of us flying, i had to pay for 2 checked baggage (£234 extra for both cases) I had to call Virgin to check about some extra luggage for medical purposes. As i was speaking to the VA agent, i told her that i had to pay extra for the suitcases, when she told me you should not have to, a 23kg case is included with every ticket. So i called back Kiwi and told them about it, the girl i had on the phone just kept saying that it was not right, i had to pay for the luggage, anyway after losing my cool i managed to convince her to call Virgin and double check. Later that evening i received an email from Kiwi saying that £234 was its way back to my bank account with an apology. If you fly Economy you are entitled to a checked case, it's only Economy Light where you only a hand luggage

I’ve never heard of the double the difference back offer. Is it on their website? I find the website is often a lot more
Great price. Nice find

BA have a 23kg hand luggage limit. You can easily go hand luggage only with them. I’ve used Travel up before with no issues whatsoever.

Just dont tip....you dont have to.

I've been to america plenty of times and I only tip when I've received a good level of service. I dont really care if they think I'm tight or odd. Theres no point of a service charge if the establishment gets the service charge even if theyve provided poor service.

Haha tried that but the waitress insisted that i left a tip. Drink were overpriced to start with...
Went into a bar....ordered 2 brandy and coke's bill came to 36 USD....signed receipt with $0 tip....waitress called me and my mate back and insisted that we added a tip. We ended up tipping $5 + overpriced drinks. American RIP off

If you receive acceptable service then of course you should tip...if you feel the service was slow, poor or the food not up to scratch then you are within your rights to have a service charge removed.

What if the whole experience was overpriced?
Tips are basically because their company pay them a low wage, apparently.
tipping culture only means that the above continues to happen.

Well....they will say the prices are shown on the menu.

It's always a good idea to check the price list before ordering at any establishment in america as prices can fluctuate heavily between restaurants.

This is true. As long as you can lift it in the overhead compartment, it’s 23kg!!!!!

I agree completely that its immoral to underpay staff and have them rely on tips to make a living.

But who is suffering when you don't tip? You're punishing the victims...

I can't see how people do this... Check the airline and then check the company you are booking through. If it's the same tickrt, you get the same things.

I'd never book through a 3p. Had a flight cancelled with virgin 3 days before flying. They rebooked me on Delta and upgraded me to DeltaOne free of charge.
I imagine the experience wouldn't have been so smooth via a 3p.

The saving would have been £50ish going through a 3p on a £700 ticket.

I lived in the US for 6 years, you kinda do have to tip. It’s super frustrating at first, but just think of it as part of the price. If they removed tipping they would just bump the price up 15-20% anyway.

I’m now in London where almost every place has a 12.5% service charge built in automatically.

But generally yes, if you’re looking to travel in a tight budget, NYC is not the place to go.

I was about to book with a third
Party last week for Virgin Atlantic flight to Hawaii. Was about £150 cheaper but when I enquired it was for the Economy light (hand luggage only) - the website was not clear at all and certainly did not
Make that clear.

It was cheaper to book with VIrgin direct and I have the extra peace of mind.

I agree with you but i suppose it is also encouraging the system that allows it to happen in the first place.
Have to say though that i have never had any problems in the united states when i either leave a tip or not.

Hummm, plenty of people. For 1-week trips it's more than enough. 2-week trips, for warm(ish) weather also doable (one pair of spare trousers/shorts and plenty of t-shirts - plus underwear of course). The bulkier clothes (coats, etc.) go on you. And, as people said, BA even has a 23kg limit for hand baggage (and yes, you can fit 23kg of stuff on a carry on, you just have to pack smart), and you can take a "personal item" (read, regular-sized backpack, where I usually fit anything that are not clothes - toiletries, etc.) on top of that.

I've only holidayed there so.maybe its different for tourists....as, when the service has been poor I have not paid a service charge and never come across any resistance.

I see absolutely no point in having a service charge compulsory, as a tip is given if you're happy with service.....youd be pretty annoyed paying a service charge when the service was slow, with bad attitude and the food dreadful. If so, youd be better just building it into the price or calling it something different.

I give a tip I'd say 70% of the time....by giving poor service a tip you are encouraging bad practice.
