I've done the JFK to LHR route before, where you get to spend the day on the plane and sleep in a real bed in London that night. It's also awesome to wake up early

Currently, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic offer departures to London from New York at or around 8am. Are there any other departures like this?

Kayak makes this easy to do with its "Overnight flights" check box. On a sample date (May 13), your nonstop options are:

  • British Airways 178: JFK 8:00a - LHR 7:40p

  • Virgin Atlantic 18: EWR 8:00a - LHR 8:00p

  • United 18: EWR 9:00a - LHR 9:20p

  • American 142: JFK 9:30a - LHR 9:30p

If you are willing to make a connection, you could also take advantage of:

  • United 922: IAD 9:29a - LHR 9:55p

  • American 90: ORD 9:00a - LHR 10:45p

Thanks! It looks like LHR is the only European destination that offers this option. –  Rich Armstrong Apr 16 '12 at 12:32
@RichArmstrong: Yes, I also checked CDG, AMS and FRA and didn't find anything. –  Nate Eldredge Apr 16 '12 at 12:48
