British Airways Business & First Class Sale Fares Loaded 9th March 2017

by Continental Club on March 9, 2017  |  One comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways has loaded its Luxury World 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 21st March 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.

Overall, Club World fares are 3% lower on a simple average basis than those offered in the last sale, and First Class fares are 1% lower. As usual, some of this can be attributed to seasonal variations, with different travel periods featuring in consecutive sales.

Generally-speaking many destinations are cheaper than last time around, but the notably low-fare destinations of, say, Abu Dhabi and Muscat in the December sale, are more expensive this time.

Doha, by contrast, appears untouched in this sale, perhaps by virtue of all BA flights between London and the Qatari capital now being operated in a codeshare joint veture with Qatar Airways, who may have to approve any fare change.

The additional offer of a further £200 discount when two Club World tickets are booked together is also offered once again 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.

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.

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.

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.

British Airways Black Friday Sale Update: More Fares Released

by Continental Club on November 24, 2016  |  2 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysLast night, we reported that British Airways had revealed its Black Friday & Cyber Monday sale, offering pairs of Club World Business Class return tickets to selected longhaul destinations for a combined total of £2016. This morning, it appears that more destinations have been added at flash sale fares; some at 2 for £2016 and some slightly higher. All fares are available to book now at ba.com with a booking deadline of 23:59GMT on 28th November 2016. Outbound travel to most destinations must take place on or after the 18th December 2016, and on or before the 2nd January 2017. Again for most destinations, travel must be completed by 6th January 2017.

As usual, Continental Club readers are among the very first to know about the sale, well before a specific promotional page for the sale appears on the BA website. With that in mind, the British Airways Low Fare Finder is the easiest means of checking and booking the lowest fares.

Update: the promotional page is now live at ba.com/blackfriday.

The additional fare availability includes destinations such as Nairobi and Toronto, meaning that this promotion targets North America, the Middle East, Africa and the Far East, with Latin America, the Caribbean, South Asia and Australia missing out this time around.

A key point is that some of these fares, despite being low, are both changeable and at least partially refundable, with no minimum stay requirement. Full terms are shown at the final fare page at ba.com.

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. Connecting itineraries may offer higher levels of Tier Point and Avios earning.

For a list of currently available longhaul destinations and starting Club World and First Class fares, scroll down or click ‘READ MORE’ below. The listing includes the equivalent fares from the last full sale in October 2016, although that sale did of course offer a greater range of travel dates.

Periods of availability vary by destination. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 8th November 2016.

Club World fares are on average 2% higher than the last sale in August 2016 and First Class fares are just under 2.5% lower than last time.

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.

The Ultimate British Airways Sale Fare Archive

by Continental Club on January 12, 2015  |  6 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysThis is the Ultimate British Sale Fare Archive – every ex-UK BA longhaul ‘Sale’ since December 2010 that Continental Club has covered is listed here, with a link to the article published when the relevant fares were first loaded.

BA 380 Image

The cabin codes are as follows:

     Economy                          World Traveller

W     Premium Economy           World Traveller Plus

      Business                          Club World

F       First                                 First

The archive is updated upon publication of a new longhaul sale. Although there are no guarantees as to when the next sale will take place, readers are welcome to identify any patterns! For those less familiar with the BA promotional calendar, it’s particularly worth mentioning that 2012 was an atypical year, as the airline was a major sponsor of the London 2012 Olympics and ran several specifically Olympic-related sales.

For the earliest notice of when the next BA sale is taking place, follow us on Facebook and Twitter. And, at all times, the best current fares are most easily found by using the Low Fare Finder at ba.com.
