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:


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.

Black Friday Up To £200 Off British Airways Holidays

British AirwaysBritish Airways is offering £100 off a selection of holidays in a 5 day Black Friday and Cyber Monday deal, based on two passengers travelling in economy. The discount combines, notably, with the concurrent reduction in World Traveller fares to New York, meaning that three night breaks are on offer from £507 per person including flights and accommodation.

The discount is also available when travelling in World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and it is doubled to £200 per couple when travelling in the airline’s Club World business class and First Class cabins.

As we like to properly analyse the value of promotions like this, we’ve looked at a sample economy trip to The Big Apple staying at The Waldorf=Astoria Hotel. The BA Holidays website is showing a package departing 31st January 2015 at £1148 for two people, including  £50 per person Black Friday/Cyber Monday discount:

Booking the same flights on a standalone basis at would currently cost £796.32 total for the two passengers:

Meanwhile, a check of the comparison website Kayak shows that the cheapest rate at The Waldorf=Astoria is £162 per night for the three nights of this trip:

With the Continental Club discount code ‘5NOVB14‘ valid until the end of November, the rate comes down to £153.90 per night, or a total of £461.70 for the three nights.

That makes a grand total of £1258.02 for the couple travelling when booked separately – £110.02 more than booking the BA Holidays package for £1148.

You may also notice above that members of the British Airways Executive Club will earn a bonus 2296 Avios, on top of the Avios earned for the flights themselves. Holders of a British Airways American Express card can then earn up to an additional 3 Avios per £ spent on the trip, and the flights will also qualify for OnBusiness SME corporate rewards too. Finally, trips booked as a package with BA Holidays are fully ATOL-protected.
