Crazy eco fares ex USA

I'm not sure if I'm missing something here! But USA eco fares to London are absolutely crazy, 2.5K USD plus, even though there is plenty of O/N/V etc etc. Is there anyway to get such fares down at all? Looking at 2 weeks out so surprised if it's some sort of APEX.

DFW is nuts at the best of times. Have you tried out of different hubs with more competition?

Just a an aside, I ran DFW to London in Sep and finding 700-1100 dollars in Y. Are you pricing up full flex by any chance?

Prices very high up until 5th Sept departure when prices drop to around 1100 return (7d trip). Week of 12 Sept drops to < 850. Not sure why they're so high now.

This is where Avios can prove to be very valuable as it would be much cheaper booking a redemption?

There seems to be availability DFW-LHR return.

Labor Day weekend is the traditional "last" weekend for summer travel so airfares across the board tend to drop dramatically after that.

Heathrow is stopping airlines selling tickets to get to the 100k passengers per day to end of October according to UK newspapers.

I'd expect that the primary force is that it is peak travel season in the US (and Europe). Not sure why it would be surprising that short-notice tickets would be very expensive for the next few weeks.
