I went to our local thomson travel agents yesterday to price up 5 nights in New York for our silver wedding anniversary next June. To fly from Heathrow with BA it is approx 600 each to fly from Birmingham with continental staying at the same hotel just over 3000 each :scared1: I can't believe the difference in price. The poor girl in the travel agents said there must be a problem with her computer but i tried it myself when i got home and it came up the same price.

I found it similar when I was booking NY. It was about 500-700 more to fly out of Gatwick rather then Heathrow:scared1: baring in mind both are major airports. I think its because most flights for NY go out of Heathrow to JFK

TBH I wish I booked it separately now as the we ended up paying slightly more then agreed as the hotel we chose didn't have any rooms & I could have got it cheaper.
