MAXjet: $750 ROUND TRIP to London in Business Class

Forget all of the other business class deals I’ve bored you with in the past–this is a big one.  MAXjet, which must be struggling mightily, is offering a roundtrip fare in its all-business class seats for $750 INCLUDING taxes.  Yes, that is correct, $750 including taxes.  Tickets must be booked by November 16th, but they’re good through October 1, 2006.  Just enter the promo code NYTIMES when you book on their website.  Hopefully they’ll still be flying by October, 2006.

  5. I flew Stansted to New York yesterday and it was brilliant
    Fantastic seating – service – meal
    It beats BA and Virgin with no hesitation and is much less expensive
    Give it a try – You will not be disappointed

  6. Just to let you know I have heard that MAXjet are doing well – over 50% occupancy on most flights with bookings coming in thick and fast. The new service being launched to Washington from UK on March 17th must be an endorsement to this. Great service, great value and excellent business model, if you havent tried it, you really should.

  8. On the one hand, you can’t beat the price.

    On the other hand, the only thing that’s business class is the seating. Even that’s marginally business class – no lie-flat seating, a handout digital video player – feels as if they didn’t want to invest in rewiring the planes. One flight a day, forget about changes; Shared Korean Air lounge at JFK, no lounge at Stansted (SAS Radisson off-terminal); you arrive at Stansted instead of Heathrow, which is an 80 GBP cab from Central London, or allow at least 2 hours by train/tube with connections (if it’s running, I was lucky to try to use it for a Sunday flight and found an unannounced bus replacement service).

    But again, you can’t beat the price.
