If you’re flying to London on business, Delta has a pretty good offer for you. If you fly between now and January 15th, they’ll give you Silver Medallion status if you fly in non-discounted coach (about $1600) or discounted Business Class (about $2200) between JFK and London. If you fly in regular Business class, they’ll give you Gold status for the year.
Competition to London in premium class continues to heat up, as British Airways unveiled their new business class product, which will have more comfortable seats, new entertainment systems and some other stuff. Seats will be installed by 2008 or so.
