So I'm flying to London again this summer (July) but I can't seem to find good prices. Last year I bought my ticket in May for $680 round-trip. Now I can't seem to find anything even close to that. Why are prices so damn high this year? I need help pls, if you know of any good source where I can buy, my price range really is $500-$720. Thanks.

This is going to be a tough year to find bargains because the airlines can't afford to keep losing money on every flight. When you're looking at London, don't just check Heathrow and Gatwick. Look at nearby airports like Stansted and there's another I can't recall at the moment. I saved a bundle by flying into Stansted and it's very close to London. Sometimes there are specials to places like Manchester that might be worth checking out. Have a wonderful trip!

I don't think Stansted or Luton handle international flights - mainly just in Europe. There is also London City airport.

Well,I flew either SFO or LAX to Stansted but that was ten years ago so you may be right.

At a push you could try airports like Bristol or Birmingham but then you'd have to train it down to London so the savings may not be that much. I had to pay $1300 for my June ticket to Heathrow and despite searching half a dozen different "bucket" shops online I didn't find anything that was any cheaper, except maybe by a few dollars. Non-direct flights are obviously cheaper.
