Apparently from November through April there’s limited availability for an amazing coach fare between the West Coast and London.

Here’s an itinerary found using airfare metasearch site Momondo flying Virgin Atlantic on the outbound, and a combination of Virgin Atlantic and Alaska Airlines on the return.

Note that the flight arrives at London Heathrow and the return trip departs London Gatwick.

Since we don’t know for certain how airlines will feel about such a deep discount airfare sale, whether they might get seller’s remorse, I’d wait a few days after buying tickets before making additional non-refundable travel plans around the fare.

In theory an airline refusing to honor a sale like this would have to reimburse any out of pocket costs you incurred but there’s not much history with enforcement of that particular DOT statement so I’d still not test it.
