Offer: No ex EUs here! UK to Phoenix £1544 & San Francisco £1578 on Virgin/Delta

phoenician hotelThe Phoenician Hotel, A Luxury Collection hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona

A few weeks ago I talked about the six-month advance purchase fares available with British Airways. If you are after something a little bit sooner, there are a couple of fares flying on Virgin, KLM and Delta to the West of the USA. Phoenix is one of my favourite winter sun destinations. I love the desert landscape and luxury spa hotels. One of my favourites is The Phoenician that you can read my review of here. You can also read my guide to what to do in Phoenix and Scottsdale here.

The fares in business class return are:

  • Phoenix from £1544
  • San Francisco from £1578
  • Los Angeles from £1679
  • San Diego from £1645
  • New York from £1255

You have to travel on a Delta flight for one of the flights but the new Virgin A350 is available to New York on the fare if you wanted to try it out. Although it says no stopovers, you can break your journey for up to 24 hours for free. Delta is introducing a version of its Delta One business class suite on its B767 from London this winter.

    Hi Michelle,
    Wanted to say a thank you, just back from a 3 week trip to Asia using ex- EU: ARN-BKK on qatar, used BA to connect from Manchester to ARN, and did a couple of very cheap business class flights in Asia using Malaysia and was able to get BAEC silver status on one trip! Used your useful beginners pages for advice so thanks again! Never realised it could be so cheap yet fruitful to travel business class, had the Qsuite on 2 legs too which was fab!
    Do you know what time of year Qatar usually run their companion offers, gonna bring the other half with me next time, he just needs a little coaxing to spend a little bit more to travel ex EU business!!

    • Hi Patrick. Qatar seem to vary their sales from year to year apart from the November Black Friday and January sales. Glad you got a good deal!

Have your say
