USA flight FAQs

How long is a flight to the USA?

Your flight time to the USA from London depends on your destination. Jetting off to Los Angeles on the west coast can take over 11 hours, while you'll be in the air for eight to nine hours on a flight to New York or Florida. Flight times to the central states will sit somewhere in between.

Which airports does British Airways fly to the USA from?

We fly to the USA from London Heathrow and London Gatwick.

What's the cheapest month to fly to the USA?

Use our low fare finder to discover the cheapest time to visit the USA. You might find it’s cheaper to visit one state during the summer, and another during the winter – it depends on what’s going on there. New York is a popular spot for a Christmas city break, while Orlando’s prices often drop in late August and early September.

When's the best time to visit the USA?

The best time to visit depends on where you want to go. Try Los Angeles in the spring if you want to avoid the sweltering heat of summer. Don’t miss Boston in the autumn – its bright foliage is made for social media. Visit at Halloween and take a trip to nearby Salem, all dressed up for spooky season. Miami is ideal for a winter break, as the weather is pleasant and less humid than in the summer.

Is the USA cheap to visit?

You can make your trip to the USA fit your budget with a little pre-planning. There are lots of affordable hotel chains across the country, and prices are often cheaper if you choose to stay outside city centres. Portion sizes at restaurants are famously large, so you can easily split dishes and reduce the cost of meals. Or, make sure you’ve got a hotel room with a fridge – you can save half of your dinner for the next day. Beer is often a cheaper option at bars than wine or spirits, and public transport in cities will save you a few dollars.

Is it easy to get around the USA?

It's possible to travel from coast to coast in the USA on the Amtrak train. In some regions you'll find several places worth visiting that are a short road trip away from each other. You can rent a car and drive from New York City to the capital, Washington DC, in four hours, and tick off several states on the way.

Why visit the USA?

There really is something for everyone on a trip to the USA. You can kayak through national parks spotting wild animals in Yosemite, restock your wardrobe in Dallas’ huge shopping malls or marvel at historic sites in Massachusetts. Just decide on the kind of getaway you want – and with a little planning, you can do it all before you fly home.
