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. An official ‘Sale’ page is published to the airline’s website at ba.com, but the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

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.

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:

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.

To book this and the airline’s other Black Friday offers, visit ba.com/blackfriday.

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.

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 as usual, with the very lowest fares largely focused on Christmas and New Year once again, although some discounts also show across the Northern Summer 2016. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 12th July 2016. As usual, we try to be the first to announce new BA Sales, so once again we’re ahead of any public advertising. Until that starts, 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.

Club World fares are on average 5% lower than the last sale in April 2016. First Class fares are, again on average, just over 1% higher than last time, although the ‘stand-out’ fares in this sale are in fact in First to the Middle East and South Asia, with Abu Dhabi showing at £1645, Dubai at £1760, and Muscat at £1761. Mumbai in First is from £1927 and New Delhi is from £1923. Many of these destinations show First Class fares at an effective additional cost of just £200 each way on top of the Club sale fare.

Fares are largely on a par with those offered in the last sale; World Traveller prices are 3.5% lower and World Traveller plus fares are 0.6% higher on average. That means that there aren’t any really stand-out fares compared to last time, save to say that Premium Economy to high-volume destinations on the US East Coast and the Middle East look to be good value, and Sydney at £733 in Economy is a very competitive fare for a non-Middle East connection – if not quite as low as it has been in the recent past.

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.
