I'm trying to 4 flight tickets to Manchester from NYC/Newark airport for the Christmas period. Any recommendations for flight websites that I can use? Thank you.

I'd expect to pay more than usual. I'm lucky, in March 2020 I booked 2 tickets Newark to LHR for $350 return each - for Sept 2020. That never happened by Virgin moved my ticket for free! Cheapest transatlantic flights I've ever had (now the same route is $750). Annoyingly at the beginning of the pandemic Virgin cut their Newark route completely, so it's now out of JFK

You can use google flights or kayak or Expedia etc to look for who flies. And then go to that airlines website directly to book. In the case of non-nominal operations it’s always easier to deal with a airline directly than go through a consolidator. Given both CV19, and the possibility for bad weather at that time of the year my focus would not only be on price but also frequency. I would pick someone that has at least 1 daily flight, preferably 2/3. Someone that flies 3x a week will have way less options to re-accommodate if something happens. Normally I would avoid connecting flights, for MAN I would probably look at LHR rather than a connecting flight. I stick with *A because of status, but Jet Blue is worth a look, I believe they started flying over the pond now.

skyscanner is worth a look, Google Flights usually picks up the best as well. Expedia can be worth a look if you add a single night at a hotel sometimes.
