One Way Fares
I’m looking to book a one way fare out of the USA to the UK in the summer (due to my flying into the USA on a one way awards ticket) apart from Norwegian, are there any other airlines that offer reasonable one way fares in business class without being penalised? I notice that if I book a one way on BA from LAX to LHR for example, it’d cost about 3x as much as a return!!!
I’m happy to fly to an airport in continental Europe if needs be.
Many thanks in advance.
one way fares can be insanely expensive. In your case, it might make sense to book a round trip for the cheaper fare while having no intention of flying the return. Or you can book the return for a year out and plan another trip around it. Nested ticketing!
You might also consider buying miles when the promotion is good (Lucky always reports on those when they are published), and use those miles to buy the one way saver award ticket. Taxes out of the US on a one way ticket are not bad (on Finnair [using AA miles] it was around $30 for me 2 months ago). Since with award tickets you are not penalized when you get o/w as opposed to r/t tickets, that is an option. Last time (before the AA devaluation) I bought miles for a o/w business BNA-JFK-HEL-BUD AA saver award ticket, it cost me around $1,150.
