Even though the date 2/22/22 doesn’t technically mean anything, some airlines are using this Tuesday—or “Twosday” as they’re calling it—to mark down flights to London. And we won’t say no to that, especially now that fully vaccinated travelers no longer need to submit COVID tests to enter the United Kingdom.
United: 8 U.S. cities to London from 22,000 miles each way
If you’re a United MileagePlus member, you can book an award flight on any of United’s 22 daily nonstop flights to London from the United States for just 22,000 miles each way in economy, plus taxes. Tickets must be purchased on United.com or through the United mobile app on February 22, 2022.
This sale is valid on flights that take place between March 1 and November 15, 2022.
Since round-trip purchase is required, you’ll spend 44,000 miles plus taxes and fees that start at $210. A search for award fares shows one-way fares beginning at 30,000 miles for travel dates after November 15. That means you could save 16,000 miles round-trip with this sale (taxes stay roughly the same, sale or no sale).
Those 22 nonstop flights to London Heathrow include:
- 7 daily flights from New York/Newark (EWR)
- 3 daily flights from Washington, D.C. (IAD)
- 3 daily flights from San Francisco (SFO)
- 3 daily flights from Chicago (ORD)
- 2 daily flights from Houston (IAH)
- 2 daily flights from Denver (DEN)
- 1 daily flight from Boston (BOS)
- 1 daily flight from Los Angeles (LAX)

JetBlue: JFK to London from $349 round-trip

This sale is valid on round-trip flights that take place between March 10 and May 23, 2022, and include a Saturday night stay.
JetBlue, which just launched its first transatlantic flights in 2021, is offering round-trip flights from JFK to Gatwick starting at $349 in its “core” or economy seats, or $1,939 for its lie-flat Mint suites. Round-trip flights from JFK to Heathrow start at $399 for core and $1,999 for Mint during this sale.
You can also bundle flights and hotels with JetBlue Vacations to save $400 on your trip. Bundled vacations must include a $2,000 minimum spend and be booked by February 28, for travel dates between March 4, 2022, and January 15, 2023.
