British Airways Business & First Class Sale Fares Loaded 23rd August 2016

by Continental Club on August 23, 2016  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways has this morning loaded sale fares for 2016 and 2017 travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. Periods of availability vary by destination. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 21st September 2016. As usual, we try to be the first to announce new BA Sales, so once again we were ahead of any public advertising. Although the official Sale page has now been published, the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and Continental Club readers will hopefully benefit from the very best availability.

Continental Club Air Fare Alert BA

Club World fares are on average 10% higher than the last sale in June 2016 and First Class fares are just over 11% higher than last time, although in both cases this may be the result of not quite all fares being loaded yet. There are arguably fewer ‘stand-out’ fares in this sale than in previous ones, but Business Class to the Middle East look to be the best value propositions this time around.

British Airways Economy & Premium Economy Sale Fares Loaded 16th June 2016

by Continental Club on June 17, 2016  |  One comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways has now also loaded its World Is On Sale fares for travel in its World Traveller (Economy) and World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) cabins to destinations worldwide on selected dates through into 2017. As with the First Class and Club World sale fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 12th July 2016. An official ‘sale‘ page is published to the airline’s website, but the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

BA WT NEW

Fares are largely on a par with those offered in the last sale; World Traveller prices are 2% higher and World Traveller plus fares are 1% lower on average. This disguises slightly the fact that Economy fares to North American destinations are largely untouched by the Sale. Other destinations are mostly on-par with last time. By contrast, Premium Economy fares to US cities and the Middle East look to be even better value than last time around, with Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Doha & Dubai all from c£600 return.  One other notable fare is Sydney at £693 in Economy – even lower than the last sale fare which, as we noted at the time, was itself a very competitive fare for a non-Middle East connection.

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 sale (April 2016), click ‘READ MORE’ or scroll down.

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

Club World fares are on average 5% lower than the last sale in April 2016.
