British AirwaysBritish Airways has loaded its Winter sale for 2016 travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. Continental Club is ahead of the public launch of the sale, giving readers the best chance to access availability before headline advertising begins. Periods of availability vary by destination as usual, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 2nd February 2016.

BA CW LEISURE

Far Eastern destinations were the ‘stars’ of the last BA sale, but this time it seems that Latin America & The Caribbean, and the Middle East & Africa have had the promotional fairy dust sprinkled most liberally over them. Abu Dhabi missed out in the most recent sale, while Dubai featured. However this time around, at £1339 return, the Club World Abu Dhabi starting fare is £298 lower than the comparable Dubai fare.

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 soon-to-change OnBusiness SME Loyalty programme for eligible members.

British Airways Business & First Class Sale Fares Loaded 25th November 2015

by Continental Club on November 26, 2015  |  2 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysWe revealed late last night that British Airways had begun loading sale fares for travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. Most fares are now available to book at ba.com with a booking deadline of 23:59GMT on 30th November 2015. Travel dates are similarly limited to those in the concurrent World Traveller economy and World Traveller Plus premium economy sale. Hong Kong departures in Club World, for example, are from 21st December 2015 to the 3rd January 2016, with all travel to be complete by 11th January 2016.

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 Black Friday Sale fare page is now live at ba.com.

Far Eastern destinations look to be the stand-out deals this time around, with Club World returns from £1201 to Chengdu, £1394 to Shanghai, £1395 to Seoul and £1500 to Hong Kong. Conversely and with the exception of Mexico City, fares to Latin America and the Caribbean do not appear to feature in this promotion. In general, First Class sale fares have only been patchily applied.

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 soon-to-change OnBusiness SME Loyalty programme for eligible members.

British Airways Business & First Class Sale Fares Loaded 29th October 2015

by Continental Club on October 29, 2015  |  3 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British Airways has today loaded sale fares for travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins and, as usual, we’re bringing Continental Club readers the breaking news before the official advertising starts – when availability is at its very best. The fares are listed in full below and are available to book immediately at ba.com.

The specific promotional page for the sale is now live on the BA website at ba.com, but the British Airways Low Fare Finder may be the easiest means of checking and booking the lowest fares.

british-airways-787-9-dreamliner-first-class-cabin-1

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. Sale fares are available on selected services operated by BA’s latest Airbus A380, Boeing 787-8 and Boeing 787-9 fleets, with the latter’s 8-Seat First Class cabin shown here.

Bookings in this sale must be made by 17th November 2015, for various travel dates between 12th November 2015 and 15th October 2016. Some travel periods to certain destinations are quite restricted this time; the lowest fares to Dubai, for example, are available only for travel between 18th December 2015 and 8th January 2016. Most sale fares must be booked no later than 28 days before departure.

Comparing this sale to the last ‘Premium Leisure Offer’ in August 2015, North America, the Caribbean and Latin America look to be the biggest beneficiaries of fare reductions, whilst across Africa, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Nairobi have so far missed the sale fairy’s dust shaker completely. We will monitor this in case of further sprinklings over the continent.

In the meantime, for a full 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 comparable sale in August 2015.

Flash sale fares earn Avios and Tier Points in the British Airways Executive Club programme, and also OnBusiness points for members of the airline’s SME loyalty programme.

Alternatively, the fares are also available (without fanfare) as part of British Airways Holidays flight plus hotel and/or car rental package prices, which can additionally release discounted rates for accommodation and cars.

To check availability, fares and to book, visit the special flash sale page at ba.com.

British Airways Club World Holidays Sale Loaded 2nd October 2015

by Continental Club on October 2, 2015  |  One comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways has loaded special Club World business class fares to selected longhaul destinations – when booked in conjunction with hotel accommodation. The so-called ‘Inclusive Tour’ or IT fares are non-refundable and non-changeable, but offer advertised savings of up to £830 per person.

British Airways Club World A380

Advertising has yet to start, but at least some of the fares are bookable now online at ba.com, with sample offers of 3 nights at New York’s Roosevelt Hotel from £1799 per person, including return Club World flights from London Heathrow.

British Airways - Flight + hotel results 2015-10-02 16-16-30

The fares are also bookable through online travel agents such as Expedia and ebookers.com, whose varying portfolios of hotel accommodation presents potentially lower starting prices for these IT offers. Expedia‘s entry price is £1657.55 per person, based on two passengers travelling together:

Trip Detail - Expedia 2015-10-02 16-19-44

ebookers.com, meanwhile, is currently offering a package from £1617.49 per person, once again based on two passengers travelling together.

www.ebookers.com - Trip details 2015-10-02 16-23-57

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.

IT fares are not in themselves unusual, but for premium class travel they are most often useful in varying advance purchase and stay restrictions. This particular promotion seems to undercut any comparable published fare, making it rather more notable.

Offers for travel to North American destinations appear to be valid for travel between 22nd November and 29th November 2015, with the exception of destinations in Florida which are valid from 12th February 2016 until 24th February 2015.

The booking deadline is 15th October 2015. A full list of destinations and fares will be archived once all relevant information has been collated.
