AA/BA - JFK-AMM/DXB (via LHR) - ~$600 o/w - Premium Economy

BA or AA premium economy from New York (JFK/EWR) to London (LHR/LGW), connecting onwards to DXB or AMM (BA economy).

LGW to LHR transfer is possible
12+ hour overnight layover in London is possible

Currently pricing at $597 (AMM) and $615 (DXB). Add $23 for LGW/LHR transfer. Wide availability through May '24 via Google Flights and aa.com. Do schedule enough time in London - you wouldn't want to miss your connection.

Edit: fare is valid from a range of US cities (LAX, SFO, MIA, IAD, DCA etc)

I checked some days in January and could not find any flights LHR-DXB that would be in Premium Economy, so be careful when booking.

Correct, seems to be the rule rather than the exception on this fare. It might be something to do with the booking class. Insight from more knowledgeable FTers would be much appreciated!

The fare is almost same price from LAX and SFO. I paid 1331 r/t. If you book through AA instead of BA you will get more miles on AS as the fare class for the LHR/DXB leg gets 75% on AA and 50% on BA.

MIA, IAD, CLT, DCA, PHL are also similarly priced.

You won't find any dates that are entirely premium economy at this price. The segment from London to Dubai will be in economy.

This fare (mixing Economy/Premium Econ) is available quite often.

No point doing half of the trip in Y.

What are you talking about? 2h40m in whY (and QR Y at that, not AA/BA Y), 26h45m in Y+. How does that equate to "half the trip?"

Maybe I can't read sarcasm

skunker was proposing a route via DOH as opposed to one via LHR. The proposed one is an hour in Y vs half of the trip in the OP's routing.

Maybe you didn't read the OP. As Antarius points out, the route in the OP is PE to LHR and then Y from LHR to DXB or AMM. What I posted is only an hour+ in Y. You don't have to spend the night in DOH if you don't want; there are many flights a day. Last time I did DOH-DXB I think I left at 0155.

There are actually surprisingly few flights between DOH and DBX - and oddly clustered together - probably to meet primary connection times.

Looks like you're right. Down to about 4 or 5 a day but all wide-body aircraft (787 or 777). They used to run more frequently but using a mix of A320 and wide-bodies.
