A good time to cross the pond......

Now is a really good time to book a transatlantic flight with one of the low-cost carriers as fares are really really low.

WOW air, the Icelandic carrier has been having a torrid time recently, first it was being bought by fellow Icelandic air transport carrier, Icelandair,  which fell through, now the discussions with Indigo Partners are dragging on at an almost glacial pace. However, this could be good news for passengers as fares are falling, for example for travel between now and March WOW's fares to Boston, New York and Washington from London are just £149 including taxes on a oneway basic fare, via Iceland.

Norwegian also have some special fares for travel from now until the end of March all over its network, but looking at those flights crossing the Atlantic there are some big savings.  New York JFK from £144.90, Boston from £134.90, Orlando from £149.90, Fort Lauderdale from £144.90, Denver from £164.90, Las Vegas from £164.90, Los Angeles from £169.90, Oakland from £159.90, Seattle from £169.90, Chicago from £134.90 and Austin from £164.90.  All are from London Gatwick and based on one-way basic type seat only fares.  The airline also has some even cheaper flights from Ireland to a few destinations in the USA, starting from around €99 one way.
