Air New Zealand has announced it will be selling return flights between London and Los Angeles for as low as  £179 (NZ$360) return, which is £1 plus tax. 

The deal is part of the airline's Black Friday sale, which is being offered to customers in the UK and will be for flights from between February and March in 2020.

The Atlantic route is highly competitive, with other airlines often selling fares for around £300 - which is part of the reason Air NZ announced it will pull out of the route at the end of next year.

The rest of the £179 airfare is made up of taxes such as US arrival tax, customs and duty fees.

Air NZ told British media it would be releasing more bargain flights next year as its London services come to an end.

The sale fares are released on November 29 at 10am in the UK (11pm NZT).
