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.

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

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.

British AirwaysBritish Airways has further improved its current Unforgettable Sale with a set of additional discounts of up to £100 to selected destinations – when booked in conjunction with hotel accommodation or car rental.

These deeper discounts are available only until 23:59GMT on 10th January 2017; the deals are now bookable at ba.com, and details show on the airline’s ‘Holiday Offers‘ page. The discount itself is confirmed on the pricing page:

The full list of additional discounts is:

Flight & Hotel
All Destinations
£50 extra discount on Flight + Hotel holidays to any destination for bookings with a minimum spend of £1,250
£100 extra discount on Flight + Hotel holidays to any destination for bookings with a minimum spend of £2,500

Flight & Car
All destinations
£25 extra discount on Flight + Car holidays to any destination for bookings with a minimum spend of £600
£50 extra discount on Flight + Car holidays to any destination for bookings with a minimum spend of £1,250
£100 extra discount on Flight + Car holidays to any destination for bookings with a minimum spend of £2,500

Travel dates are 5th January to 31st December 2017 and, as shown in the example above, Flight + Hotel holidays can also offer significant nominal savings against booking separately, especially when a Saturday night stay is not required, plus underlying Unforgettable Sale savings. British Airways Holidays bookings often also include hotel amenities such as complimentary WiFi.

Flights booked in this offer qualify for Avios and Tier Points in the British Airways Executive Club, and members of the club at the Bronze level and above benefit from all amenities associated with their level of status in the programme, including (as relevant) fast track security and boarding, lounge access and seat selection. In addition, bonus Avios are awarded to Executive Club members for BA Holidays booking, and deposit payments from £400 are available – both as shown in the screenshot above.

Note that IT fares do not earn points in the BA OnBusiness SME Loyalty programme, however. Offer excludes Johannesburg: Holiday Inn Express Sandton Woodmead, Mauritius: Coin de Mire, Grenada: Kalinago Beach Resort, Grenada: Grenadian by Rex, St Kitts: Timothy Beach, St Kitts: Oualie Beach Resort.

The booking deadline is midnight 5th January 2017. To check availability and to book, visit ba.com.

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.

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.

BA Black Friday: 787 Dreamliner to Abu Dhabi £191 & 13600 Avios Return

by Continental Club on November 25, 2016  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

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:

british-airways-price-quote1

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.
