I'm looking at flights for my BI cruise in Aug but looking for recommendations/opinions on options: I'll be leaving on a Thursday night getting there early Friday, cruise leaves Saturday. Cruise gets back on a Thursday we fly back home Saturday night.
My options are:
JFK (NY) to Heathrow 7:00pm getting in 7:20am on Delta- cheapest about $577pp economy , but a bit more challenging getting to airport in rush hour. Would you head toward London hotels/sites or go to Southampton area? I looked into a few tours (International Friends) going to Stonehenge, Windsor, Salisbury etc. but most of them leave by 9:00am from London area. I don't think I would get out of the airport in time.
JFK to Heathrow 11:00pm-11:20am on Delta -$250pp more right now, no worries about rush hour- Don't know if this kills so much of the day that we could tour?
JFK to Gatwick 7:30pm getting in 7:50am on Virgin- $100pp more right now - Airport might be less busy than Heathrow? I think I would try and go toward Southampton, but again most tours start at 9:00 and don't pick up from Gatway.
JFK to Heathrow 10:00pm-10:10am on Virgin-$100 pp more right now
Heathrow to JFK 5:30pm-8:15pm Delta- Will we have enough time to take in some sites in London before the flight or is it just too much?
Your thoughts and opinions are always so helpful TIA 😁
