[A: We don't know]
British 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
£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
£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.

British 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 ba.com 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:
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.
For full details on all the destinations, hotels and rental cars available in this promotion, which must be booked by midnight Tuesday 2nd December 2014 to benefit from the discount, visit ba.com.
Through its British Airways Holidays division, ba.com offers not only flights and ‘flight plus’ packages, but also the ability to book standalone hotel and car rental arrangements. And, until April 28th, bookings at hotels in the USA attract a 10% discount.
There’s no promotional code for this offer; the discount shows up on the hotel listings page and apparently applies to all room types. Although hotel rates are dynamic and these kind of ‘codeless’ offers can be difficult to validate for the real level of saving, recent tracking suggests that these are indeed genuine discounts.
More practically, comparing BA rates with those available from other agents shows some definite savings against the best rates elsewhere.
We looked at the above example, at The Bellagio Las Vegas, and found that the rate undercuts all but one other online provider at the time of checking. However the BA rate also includes the USD20 per day resort fee, meaning that the total cost with BA is indeed cheaper in real terms.
On selected dates and at hotels where other pre-existing offers apply, such as ‘fifth night free,’ the 10% off deal appears to stack on top of the original promotion and both savings are available.
