The airline is launching brand new flights between London and Boston Logan International Airport staring March 27th and then to Baltimore Washington International Airport on June 4th. Each flight includes a stopover in Reykjavik, making the trips about 3 hours longer than a direct journey… but at that price, who can complain?!

Here’s a bit of a breakdown of the price because we all know there’s always fine print when it comes to flying low cost:

  • It’s £99 each way (£198 return)
  • There’s a mandatory £8.98 booking fee on top of that
  • Checked luggage is priced at £39 per bag
  • Seats with extra legroom cost £14 extra
  • Inflight catering also comes extra (£2.50 for a bottle of water, £6.85 for a sandwich, £3.10 for a headset, etc.)
