Redeye Flight from NYC to London is Not Cheap, But the Best

Above, we saw how airfares in premium economy, business and first class shot up in the 8 PM to 12 midnight time slot. This might be contrary to what you might have learnt earlier about a redeye flight. Travelers see a redeye flight as a cheaper option. Understand the clock to have the answer. Take into account a late-night flight departure (8 PM – 12 Midnight) on a day. It starts in the PM period and ends in the same but on a next day – thanks to the time difference with London being ahead of NYC by 5 hours. 

 

Adjusting the time difference between the two cities against the flight time (7 hours), you find a traveler departing at 8 PM from JFK is expected to hit LHR, LGW or any other London airport by 10 PM, and one departing at 12 midnight is to arrive in London by 2 PM. 

 

The night-time of two days gets added up. The sleeplessness you encountered to make your way to airport, and then catch your flight to London on a previous day gets neutralized by the following night when you arrive in London. Slip into your hotel room. Sleep well. And, explore London’s top attractions or attend your business meeting in the morning being energetic and fresh. 

Best Times to Visit London

Though London is a city which you can visit anytime, the best time to visit the destination is spring – from March to May. Five factors contribute towards a great vacation experience in London.

  • Natural beauty at its peak: Vibrant nature – characterized by green plants and blooming flowers – aids a bit of romance to your vacation mood. London is one of the best places to travel in May.
  • Weather goes warmer: Great weather: Expect a mild temperature between 39°F (3.9°C) and 53.1°F (11.7°C) range with no fresh snowfall. Frequent mist and drizzles are common in the mornings, not just in this season but throughout the year. 
  • Low crowd: Summer, the peak season, hasn’t hit so expect easy access to cheap car rentals, top attractions, and an overall peaceful trip. You save on hotel rentals too.
  • Cheap flights: The winter phobia hasn’t gone completely out of the traveler’s mind by the time, though practically it has. So there is not much competition for getting a flight to London. Airlines keep their airfares in the below-average range.
  • Easter celebrations: Marked with folklore, family events with elders gifting chocolate eggs – called ‘Easter eggs’ to kids, family and social events, this is a weeklong celebration that starts from the Sunday (Palm Sunday) before Easter, and commemorates with Easter.

December and January sees a surge in tourism because of Christmas and New Year. Airfares and hotel rentals go up as visitors are not deterred by the chilly temperatures. Check things-to-do, places to visit, dining and nightlife options in London on Round Trip Plane Tickets to London England page.

 

Summer, from June to August, when kids are most likely to have their vacation time is unarguably the best time for a family vacation in London. Remember, it’s also the peak time. Book your flight ticket and hotel room at least 2 to 3 months in advance to avoid last-minute rush.
