Cheap Business and First class from New York to London
Flying first class is a dream for many people and if you are planning to fly in style, this is the way to go.

Advantages of Flying First Class
Lie-flat beds are guaranteed but first class seats offer incomparable width and some flights even have enclosed cabins for complete privacy.
If you are looking for a direct flight from New York to London, two airlines offer you first class seats on your journey. They are American Airlines and British Airways.
American Airlines only flies this sector originating from New York's JFK International Airport (JFK). The British national carrier gives you the option of departing from New York at either JFK or Newark's Liberty International Airport (EWR). They both land at London Heathrow Airport (LHR).
British Airways offers travelers several options on this route but the fastest ones complete the trip departing from either airport in 6 hours and 50 minutes. American Airlines takes a little more time - its flight from JFK is 7 hours long.
You can enjoy lie-flat seats on all three flights but only American offers in-flight Wi-Fi.
BA's EWR flight uses the Boeing 777-200 twin-jet flying at 11,880 m while its flight out of JFK employs the 747-400 cruising at 11,280 m. American Airlines uses the 777-300ER twin-jet with a cruising altitude of 10,680 m on this sector.
There is slightly more variety from which to choose if you would prefer to travel via business class with Virgin and United entering the picture.
United and Virgin both fly from EWR to LHR in 7 hours 05 minutes, with the former using a Boeing 767 and the latter, an Airbus A330. You get lie-flat seats on both but United also offers in-flight Wi-Fi which Virgin does not.
Virgin also flies from JFK to LHR using an Airbus A340, completing the journey in 7 hours 10 minutes. Both Virgin planes cruise at 11,280 while the United flies at 10,050 m.
Your only option to fly from New York to London's Gatwick Airport (LGW) is British Airways. BA completes the journey in exactly 7 hours on a Boring 777 with a cruising altitude of 11,880 m.
Airports in London
The city of London is home to 5 airports. However, if you plan to travel to London from New York in a first class or business class seat, you have two options of arrival airports, London Heathrow (LHR) and London Gatwick (LGW).
Heathrow is closer to central London, situated just 15 miles west of the city while Gatwick is 30 miles to the south. However, Gatwick is less crowded and is better organized than its bigger cousin which is the world's busiest international airport.
Both airports are well-connected to the rail and transport system, and most travelers prefer one over the other due to the proximity to their destination in London.
