British Airways Economy & Premium Economy Sale Fares Loaded 22nd June 2017

British AirwaysBritish Airways has loaded sale fares in its World Traveller (Economy) and World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) cabins for travel to destinations worldwide on selected dates through to early 2018. Periods of availability vary by destination, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 11th July 2017. An official ‘Sale’ page will undoubtedly be published later to the airline’s website at ba.com, but for now the BA Low Fare Finder is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

Overall, Economy fares are 3% higher than in the last sale, and Premium Economy fares are on average exactly the same. Sydney at £699 return in Economy remains very attractive in the market, but the £640 returns in Premium Economy to both New York and Boston recorded in the last sale have been followed-up by £765 and £746 fares respectively. Meanwhile, some Middle Eastern, Indian Ocean and African routes in Premium have been favoured this time, it seems, with Mauritius showing from £994 this time, compared to £1419 in the last sale. In fact, this particular route also offers £150 change flexibility at the sale fare.

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.

The Caribbean appears to have been most-favoured in this sale, with most fares the same or lower than last time around.

Once again though, North America seems to have been sprinkled with the least amount of Sale dust, with Club fares at or slightly higher than in the last sale.

Club World to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic is once again notably good from £1195 return – which is £103 cheaper than in the last but one sale, and £2 more than in the May sale.

Some destinations appear not to have had a sale fare loaded at all as yet, and these are highlighted in red bold in the table below, if they remain outstanding. We will continue to refresh the table during the sale, but as some of these destinations are popular ones such as Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Muscat, we’d expect them to come into line shortly.

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.

British Airways Business & First Class Sale Fares Loaded 4th May 2017

by Continental Club on May 4, 2017  |  3 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways is now loading a Luxury World Sale for 2017 and early 2018 travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. As usual, Continental Club is ahead of public promotion, and therefore readers have the best chance to grab any limited availability. Travel dates vary by destination as usual, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 23rd May 2017. As an official ‘Sale’ page is yet to be published to the airline’s website at ba.com, the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

Some fares and availabilities are still being loaded, although those noted below have been checked against the current fares database and therefore should feed through shortly. For now, some fares may be bookable straight away as part of a British Airways Holidays package. For example, seven nights in Ras Al Khaimah is offered from £1329 per person including breakfast and Club World flights, staying at the Doubletree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island:

Per the highlighted text in this screen grab, the book-by date for this promotion is 9th May 2017, however, rather than 23rd May for the main flight-only Sale.

Overall, Club World fares are 8% higher on a simple average basis than those offered in the last sale, and First Class fares are 2% higher. As usual, some of this can be attributed to seasonal variations, with different travel periods featuring in consecutive sales.

Generally-speaking though, North America seems to have been sprinkled with the least amount of Sale dust, with Club fares on average 11% higher than in the last sale.

If there’s a standout fare in this sale, it would appear to be Club World to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic from £1192 return – which is £103 cheaper than in the last sale.

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.
