Alaska & Hawaii: €1,100 / £1,004 SkyTeam & Virgin Atlantic Business Class from London

Hawaii Sonnenuntergang

SkyTeam members Delta Air Lines, KLM and associate Virgin Atlantic have pumped out some insane prices to start black week properly. Right now, these airlines offer business class tickets to Hawaii with departure from London at the ridiculous price of €1,100. Flight dates are available almost daily in the first half of 2021.

Update

Unfortunately this offer has already expired.

Info

Travelling directly to the United States is currently not possible from most European countries. We can’t say if it will be possible within the travel period of this deal.

Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.

A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s current immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.

KL LHR HNL C 1100

Connections with just a single stop in Los Angeles are available at the same price as two-stop-flights. These usually include a small sidestep to Paris or Amsterdam before crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

Search & Book

According to the fare rules, these tickets are sold until November 23, 2020 for travel starting on or before June 30, 2021. You need to stay at least three days at your destination to get the lowest price, a maximum stay of three months applies, as well. Availability is excellent at the time of writing.

You can find suiting flight dates on Google Flights. You can proceed to any airline of your choice like Delta Air Lines, KLM or Virgin Atlantic. Not only is booking directly with the airline directly safer – you will have a hard time finding a better offer on online travel agencies.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.

Mileage

Virgin Atlantic issues these tickets in booking class Z. Because the airline is not a member of a major alliance, earning possibilities are limited. However, due to the long travel distance, they are large where possible. This example covers a trip to Hawaii with a single stop in Los Angeles both ways:

Information & Tips for USA

The USA offers many sights, natural wonders and cultural significance. Thanks to numerous airlines offering flights across the Atlantic, it is always pretty inexpensive to get there. Alternatively, you can also cross the Atlantic by boat.

Immigration, ESTA & Visa Requirements

The USA has one of the strictest entry regulations in the world. Most EU citizens, among others, are lucky to be able to participate in the so-called Visa Waiver Program. If you get an electronic entry permit (ESTA)  for approximately €20, you don’t need a visa for entry.

The Best Time to Visit

Due to its sheer size, the perfect time to visit the USA varies greatly from region to region. In winter, Florida is very popular due to the mild temperatures. In the summer the West and East Coasts are flooded by tourists which drives up the prices for hotels and flights and during the Indian Summer in late autumn New England is a very popular destination. The hurricane season between July and September can be dangerous in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Florida and the southern states are regularly struck by these tropical storms. Blizzards occur from the East Coast to the Midwest during the winter months and regularly put air traffic and public life on hold.

Currency

The US dollar is widely used throughout the world and accepted as a currency in most tourist hotspots worldwide. That being said, carrying cash isn’t necessary in the US, all you need is a credit card! These are very common in the USA and are accepted pretty much everywhere without any issues. If you already have a credit card in your wallet, you should make sure that it does not charge a foreign currency fee if possible. Carrying a few dollars in cash doesn’t hurt though. You might need cash e.g. for the bus ticket if you want to buy it directly from the driver. Most of the time you even have to give exact change.
