Things to watch out for
- The first search result on FlightHub is not always your best flight option. Sometimes the best / fastest flight is way down the page. Look for flights that are still in the $600s and low $700s, but with a travel duration of 15-18 hours. In some cases, a 1-stop flight may only be $3 more than a 2-stop flight!
IMPORTANT: Some of these flights may involve transferring yourself from London Heathrow to London Gatwick during the 5.5 hour layover on the way there. You also need to collect your luggage at Heathrow and take it with you to Gatwick.
