Long weekend in New York

As part of my wife’s birthday and following her two previous confined birthdays, I decided to hit it big with a surprise weekend in New York.


For the flights, I booked them very early, that is to say at a time when I had no guarantee of entering the United States.

Also, I found a promotion on British Airways in September, 6 months before our trip, and in First. We travel regularly in Business class , but First class is always a little treat that should be kept exceptional.


Despite the uncertainty, I decided to book at an unbeatable price, slightly above £2,000 per person, as BA allows vouchering of all tickets until September 30th 2022.

So it will be a round trip on British Airways, with ideal schedules, and direct flights.



As for the hotels, I absolutely wanted a hotel with a beautiful view. At Marriott, it’s difficult to guarantee this, especially since with the upgrade game everything can change at the last minute.

I know my wife is fond of the EDITION brand. I booked at The New-York EDITION, a hotel in which we had already stayed.


Routes and attractions

As for sightseeing, we will schedule attractions that we were not able to do in 2019: Empire State Building, World Trade Center Observatory, Brooklyn.
