British AirwaysBritish Airways has further improved its current Unforgettable Sale with a set of additional discounts of up to £100 to selected destinations – when booked in conjunction with hotel accommodation or car rental.

These deeper discounts are available only until 23:59GMT on 10th January 2017; the deals are now bookable at ba.com, and details show on the airline’s ‘Holiday Offers‘ page. The discount itself is confirmed on the pricing page:

The full list of additional discounts is:

Flight & Hotel
All Destinations
£50 extra discount on Flight + Hotel holidays to any destination for bookings with a minimum spend of £1,250

Travel dates are 5th January to 31st December 2017 and, as shown in the example above, Flight + Hotel holidays can also offer significant nominal savings against booking separately, especially when a Saturday night stay is not required, plus underlying Unforgettable Sale savings. British Airways Holidays bookings often also include hotel amenities such as complimentary WiFi.

British Airways Business & First Class Sale Fares Loaded 20th December 2016

by Continental Club on December 20, 2016  |  7 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways has loaded its Unforgettable Sale for 2017 travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. Periods of availability vary by destination as usual, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 31st January 2017. An official ‘Sale’ page is published to the airline’s website at ba.com, however the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

BA CW LEISURE

It’s difficult to pick fare highlights out in this particular sale; in part this is due to the last sale in November being a slightly unusual one with only certain destinations covered, but with significant discounts offered. This sale, then, is more comprehensive, but some fares are on-par, some are higher and a few are lower.

Taken in isolation, as opposed to in comparison with other sales, the standout destinations this time are therefore probably Abu Dhabi and Muscat, both of which are on sale from £1195 in Club World, and £1595 in First Class.

An additional offer of a further £200 discount when two Club World tickets are booked together is also offered to destinations in North & Central America. These Companion Club World Business Class Fares must be purchased together and on the exact same itinerary with no deviations permitted.

The destinations included from London Heathrow are Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Dallas Fort Worth, New York (Newark), New York (JFK), Washington, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Miami, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle, San Francisco, San Jose (California), Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto.

Club World Business Class and First Class Sale fares earn full Tier Point and Avios credit in the British Airways Executive Club, and points in the OnBusiness SME Loyalty programme for eligible members.

by Continental Club on December 20, 2016  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways has loaded its ‘Unforgettable‘ sale of World Traveller (Economy) and World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) fares for travel to destinations worldwide on selected dates. Periods of availability vary by destination, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 31st January 2017. An official ‘Sale’ page is published to the airline’s website at ba.com, but the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

BA WT NEW

The reservation system also shows sale fares being loaded in the airline’s Club World business and First Class cabins, and we have published a separate list of these here.

Overall, Economy fares are 3% lower than in the last sale, and Premium Economy fares are on average 9% lower. This is the first time that the newly-announced destinations of Fort Lauderdale, New Orleans, Oakland and Tehran have been offered at ‘sale’ fares; Sydney at £670 return in Economy is the lowest fare that we’ve ever tracked from BA for the route, and £640 return in Premium Economy to both New York and Boston is also as low as we have ever recorded.

All sale fares qualify for Avios and Tier Point credit in the British Airways Executive Club frequent flyer programme, as well as OnBusiness points for small and medium sized enterprises enrolled in that programme.

For a full list of longhaul destinations and lowest fares, including the corresponding fare in the last full sale (August 2016), click ‘READ MORE’ or scroll down.

The ba.com Sale page is now live, however the fastest way to check availability and to book may still be to visit the Low Fares Finder at ba.com.

BA Black Friday: 787 Dreamliner to Abu Dhabi £191 & 13600 Avios Return

by Continental Club on November 25, 2016  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways has added to its range of Black Friday promotions with a £301 special fare on its new direct Boeing 787 Dreamliner service to Abu Dhabi. The airline is also offering the opportunity to save an additional £110 by redeeming 13,600 Avios, bringing the fare down to £190.87 return:

british-airways-price-quote1

Members of the Executive Club will also earn Tier Points and Avios on the fare, meaning that a Gold Executive Club cardholder could make 8,520 Avios back, bringing their net outlay down to 5,080 Avios.

Bookings must be made by 23:59 on Monday 28th November 2016, for travel between 11th January & 20th March, between 21st April & 23rd May, and between 31st May & 10th June 2017.

For travellers wishing to upgrade to World Traveller Plus Premium Economy, a return fare of £716 is also available, which can be reduced to £495.87 by redeeming 32,000 Avios. The potential Avios earn-back is 13,636, leaving a net outlay of 18,364 Avios.

In all cases, the Avios discount does not rely on the availability of ‘pure’ Avios seats for redemption – potentially making this a particularly good and easy use of points.

To book this and the airline’s other Black Friday offers, visit ba.com/blackfriday.
