How good are these fares?

Full-service flights to London can drop down to the low $900s at the very best, so while these aren't the cheapest flights you could score they are certainly up there.

If you're looking for the cheapest of the cheap, you can opt to fly budget all the way for around $800 return, though this price does rise dramatically once you add checked luggage, in-flight meals and entertainment.
