Weekend flights to the big apple from £197.80 inc taxes continental airlines

19
Found 31st Jan 2010
These seem to be good prices for a return flight from London to Newark with a well known carrier

All taxes included, flight leaving this Thursday 4th Feb and returning Monday 8th Feb for less than £200.

Other dates prices fluctuate, following week £50 more, some dates in April £197.80.
Need to do a good search but they are in there at these prices.

I know friends who have paid nearly as much for a 400 mile round trip train ticket to London during peak times

I am searching now on their and Airmiles website, but did you see any flights in March at that price off the top of your head.

Its through the airmiles site I got the prices, I booked for April 22 - 26th @ £197.80.
Just checked for this week and same price came up, but not checked anything for March....Maybe a case of waiting nearer the date or just keep checking back, on the continental website it tells you how much space is left on the plane.

Cheers, just running through Airmiles prices now, all prices for March over £1000, just searching April now to see what I can get. Thanks

Am I right in thinking that it is £197.80 each way?

I must be doing something wrong, even with the dates you have booked, leaving 22nd, returning 26th I still get a price of over £300 on Airmiles. :-((

My email confirmation clearly states return, it also shows return on the screen dumps I have posted.
My April booking price has now changed to nearer £300 on the Airmiles website and as you say some dates in March are coming up over £1000.

These prices are all over the place, first week of March less than £250 , middle over £1000

I think their website is playing silly b****ers with me, as I have tried search EXACTLY the same dates and it brings up a completely different price :-( I may have to ring them instead. You didn't happen to come across any good flights from Manchester (ideally we want to go from their, but if it is sub £200 would go from London). Looking at somewhere between 5th and 15th March.

Just back from a holiday in Costa Rica with four flights
with Continental Airlines from Manchester via Newark. Good
service, plenty legroom and no charge for soft drinks. Be
warned though, $5 or £4 a throw for alcoholic drinks and only
credit/debit cards accepted for payment.

Yeah Continental are now a cashless airline. So they only accept card payments on board.
These are fab prices if you can get them for thdates you want. Great find op!

How long you looking to go for, there are prices of £212.40 for 12th March coming back on 15th.

These are from London though, you wlll struggle to get these prices from Manchester, purely down to the number of flights operated from there

Looking to go 4 or 5 nights, that's a really good price, I'm going to try and find that one now on their website, I gave up earlier as it was saying that New York was not a recognised destination! Is that the cheapest price for March you came across?

:-((( Why can't I get those prices, I have searched dep London Heathrow on 12th March return 15th March to Newark and it still comes up at over £300!!!

Not sure why you cant see the same prices, give them a ring tomorrow see what they can come up with, not sure they will match web prices though.

Just checked and there are 3 flights on the 12th going at £212.40, so you can pick a time that suits you best.

Look at the prices compared to other carriers

How do you get to the airmiles website? I can only find a BA one. Do you have to pay all or part in airmiles?
