British AirwaysBritish Airways has loaded its Spring Luxury World Sale for 2016 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 22nd March 2016.

Travel periods generally mirror peak leisure travel ‘holiday’ periods, although North American destinations are generally priced rather higher than in the last sale. Caribbean, Latin American and Middle Eastern fares are largely on a par with December 2015 sale prices, with the Far East & Australia mostly lower than the Winter promotion. The stand-out fare in this sale appears to be First Class to Delhi for Christmas 2016, which has availability at £1961 return – which we calculate to be a 40% saving on the previous price.

British Airways Business & First Class Sale Fares Loaded 29th October 2015

by Continental Club on October 29, 2015  |  3 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British Airways has today loaded sale fares for travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins and, as usual, we’re bringing Continental Club readers the breaking news before the official advertising starts – when availability is at its very best. The fares are listed in full below and are available to book immediately at ba.com.

The specific promotional page for the sale is now live on the BA website at ba.com, but the British Airways Low Fare Finder may be the easiest means of checking and booking the lowest fares.

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. Sale fares are available on selected services operated by BA’s latest Airbus A380, Boeing 787-8 and Boeing 787-9 fleets, with the latter’s 8-Seat First Class cabin shown here.

Bookings in this sale must be made by 17th November 2015, for various travel dates between 12th November 2015 and 15th October 2016. Some travel periods to certain destinations are quite restricted this time; the lowest fares to Dubai, for example, are available only for travel between 18th December 2015 and 8th January 2016. Most sale fares must be booked no later than 28 days before departure.

Comparing this sale to the last ‘Premium Leisure Offer’ in August 2015, North America, the Caribbean and Latin America look to be the biggest beneficiaries of fare reductions, whilst across Africa, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Nairobi have so far missed the sale fairy’s dust shaker completely. We will monitor this in case of further sprinklings over the continent.
