B6: LGW - JFK/BOS and more USA in Business from 1,249 RT

If you're looking to cross the pond in August, this is mint to be. Because there isn't availability in other months.

The long segments are in the A321neo suites. But the short segments in economy.

These fares book in business (I), and you should be able to credit to Qatar and earn some Avios. E.g. LGW - JFK 24,228

From London (LGW)

New York (JFK) 1,249* Link

Boston (BOS) 1,311* Link

Washington (DCA) 1,431 Link

Atlanta (ATL) 1,456 Link

Orlando (MCO) 1,502 Link

*Non-stop

It gets better than that! If you fly from Ireland you can find fares as low as 746 EUR!

If you want business class all the way, you can fly on BA instead.

Direct fare seems valid to me, the complaint seems to be able the ex-Ireland fare, which looks a bit dodgy.

They'd prefer if you put a cork in it.

Haha! Whatever! I had an alert setup for DUB to JFK/BOS to DUB and one that started in Shannon because of a trip I was planning, which is what brought me to what I posted. Had no clue why they were so cheap!

Are you trying to re-produce what I posted, or what is in the very first post of this thread?

The easiest way that should return something similar to what I posted would be to set your origin airport then destination to London (or one of it's airports - LHR, LGW, LCY, etc) as Flight 1. Then Flight 2 is London or LGW to JFK, Boston (BOS), Orlando (MCO), whatever you want your destination to be (I had it set to JFK for the post above). Flight 3 is the exact opposite of Flight 2. Flight 4 is London (or one of it's airports - LHR, LCY, LTN, etc) to your destination.

You can set the Cabin field to Business class, but Aer Lingus doesn't have business, so that wasn't returning what I wanted, so I set that field to Cheapest available and for the two jetBlue flights I filled the Extension Codes field with jetBlue's business class fare codes - f bc=j|bc=c|bc=d|bc=i
I got those fare codes by searching Google for jetBlue's fare codes and found this - Fare Options | JetBlue (see the Mint column)

Click Search and pick your flights.

The search form should look something like this -


Result page after clicking Search -


Pick a flight (You'll still need a travel agent to book it. This is the first result from above.) -

Thanks. I was able to duplicate your search result once I set the fair rule as you suggested.

After discussing with the mods, I have deleted a number of off topic posts on this thread. Please discuss the fare.

Ive two hours trying to reproduce this and I am failing miserably. I simply cant get it to show the jet blue flights. Im putting the extension codes in as you have shown but I must be doing something wrong. Can you help ?

I did, however, come across this combination using the codes supplied by cruser1. Note there is no requirement to return to Ireland from LGW. Still cant get New York to work

JetBlue don't fly direct to the West Coast but I have got a connection from Boston to Washington in the fare for 946 euro, try adding a connection on Matrix to LA or SFO might work
