Is $700 a reasonable price for roundtrip air from the NY, or Philly area to london? I have never flown overseas be4, so I am not sure what is good and what isn't. THANX!!!!

It depends on the time of year. I've paid as little as $220 to go from San Francisco to London in November, and as much as $800 in July... So I don't think $700 from NY is such a good deal. In fact, there are usually plenty of deals from NY to London in the $200's range... unless it's a holiday week like Christmas or New Years.
