The BA deal from JFK or Newark to Paris died last night, but British Airways is back with very good good business class fares from Newark to Paris/Orly. The British Airways JFK to Paris/Orly fares are significantly higher, though American still has cheap fares from JFK to Paris/CDG.

JFK-ORY in Open Skies business class before discounts:
You can depart on most dates between now through October 24. A Saturday night stay is required.
From Paris you can connect to other cities in Europe on the cheap with Avios/miles or with the numerous low-cost carriers that operate across the pond. You should be able to get cheap tickets or awards to Israel as well.
Here’s how to knock down the price to $1,167 round-trip.
-Use this link to access the BA AARP site.
AARP members get $400 off BA business class tickets. Anyone can join AARP for $16. Just click “Log in to your AARP account here” to join AARP for $16 or to login to your existing AARP account.
Creating an account takes just a minute and as soon as you open an account you can make a login and then unlock the BA offer which can be used an unlimited amount of times.
Only 1 passenger needs to have an AARP account.
Once you are logged in just use the BA AARP link again (you may need to click on “verify membership) and search for a flight from NYC to Paris in business class. British Airways’ Open Skies affiliate airline operates daily service from both JFK and Newark to Paris/Orly. The business class seat converts into a lie-flat bed.
Select the Open Skies options and on the next screen locate the promotion code or eVoucher field and enter the following code: CARDOFFERU
Officially you are supposed to use the BA Visa to use that code, but made a confirmed/e-ticketed booking yesterday with a Sapphire Preferred Visa and it went through just fine.
You’ll also earn 10,902 Avios for the trip.
Cancellations are permitted within 24 hours for free over the phone (I used this myself yesterday). After 24 hours the fee is a whopping $500 per ticket.
You can also fly from JFK to CDG on American for $1,300 after the AARP discount, though the additional 10% off doesn’t apply to American flights.
