I found a rate, mid may from Aer Lingus 179.00 from NYC to London. Then you connect with Aer Lingus to London, currently 1 euro. Not kidding go to the site and check it out.

I think you can find better.

I paid about that to fly from Houston, which is a much longer flight. Flights from NYC are usually significantly cheaper, so I'd keep looking! Most of the time when you see really low fares to Europe advertised (from the US), they're based on a NYC departure.

Not for Mid-May...you've probably got about the best you're gonna get. The lowest airfares to London are usually October-March...once you get into April and beyond, you start getting higher in anticipation of summer travel. Even if you were to find cheaper, it won't be much cheaper...so I'd recommend booking now to lock in the low price...rather than waiting for a deal and only having the prices go up on ya.
