Lightbulb London Supersale

Just spotted deals to London including hotel stay at v. good prices; I guess you don't even need to stay at the hotels if you just want the cheap flight but there is an option to stay extra nights or extend the return date:

You may choose not to stay in the hotel but you certainly have to pay for the accommodation!

Always cheap from JFK in March too as I recall. I've always been tempted to go home via Iceland and have a night there and fly on again next day.

As an ex-travel agent, I can tell you that generally prices are cheaper in the winter, although they tend to go up when the kids are off school. I am stuck with having to go in the summer, the most expensive time.
Also, prices in the airline industry are much like anything else: Supply and demand. If they are selling tickets at the higher price and the planes are full they are not going to lower the price. Another trick they have is advertising a flight say from Jfk-Lhr for $200 RT. Well by law they have to actually have a fare that applies, but there are only usually about 5-6 seats on each flight that you can buy for that price and of course they are NEVER available on the day you want to go.
One trick I learnt is to start looking for fares directly after the most recent holiday.
I know you have to pay travel agents a fee these days, but if you are flexible and willing to stop over, their fees are well worth it. They have access to every flight and fare in the world on a CRS system and there are all kinds of tools to find the lowest fare within the perimeters. If you think about it, you have to pay the airline web site or Expedia a fee anyway, so why not give your local travel agent a try.

It's after Tax's but to be honest I just did a search and only found $488?

That was with Expedia.

I always if flying International get the lowest quote possible then I call flightcenter.com and they will under cut any price on International only it's worth doing you can save a few bucks.
