British AirwaysAs well as its Economy & Premium Economy cabin sale, British Airways has today loaded sale fares for travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. The fares are listed below and are available to book immediately at ba.com.

The specific promotional page for the sale on the BA website is fairly basic and is located at ba.com. With that in mind, the British Airways Low Fare Finder is the easiest means of checking and booking the lowest fares.

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.

As with the Economy and Premium Economy Sale, there’s no currently advertised booking deadline. Looking at detailed rules, however, it appears that fares must be booked by 22nd September 2015, with travel dates varying by destination. Update 16th September 2015: the sale has now been extended to 29th September 2015.

British Airways Economy & Premium Economy Sale Fares Loaded 19th August 2015

by Continental Club on August 20, 2015  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways has loaded its late Summer 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 and demand variations. As usual though, the best availability exists in the early stages of the promotion booking period.

Overall, average sale fares appear to be generally the same or lower than in the last comparable World Traveller and World Traveller Plus sale. The standout change is that, after some time, World Traveller Plus fares – particularly to the East Coast of the USA –  have reverted to levels not seen for a few sales. This may in part due to these fares no longer being the Avios upgrade ‘sweet spot’ that they once were.

One other change is that the booking deadline for this sale isn’t currently published, and the individual detailed fare rules themselves suggest various book-by dates. East Coast USA Economy fares appear to be available until 30th September, while Premium Economy fares show bookable until 25th August 2015. Update 16th September 2015: the sale has now been extended to 29th September 2015.

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. Following the April 2015 changes to the Executive Club, earnings rates have changed and Avios and Tier Point amounts can be checked using the Earnings Calculator.

For a full list of longhaul destinations and lowest fares, including the corresponding fare in the last ‘full’ sale (June 2015), click ‘READ MORE’ or scroll down.

Although the fares are also promoted on the ba.com sale page, the fastest way to check availability and to book, visit the Low Fares Finder at ba.com.

British Airways Economy & Premium Economy Sale Fares Loaded 25th June 2015

by Continental Club on June 25, 2015  |  2 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways has loaded another range 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 and demand variations. As usual though, the best availability exists in the early stages of the promotion booking period, and all bookings must be made be 23:59BST on 14th July 2015. Booking deadline extended to 23:59BST on 21st July 2015.

Overall, average sale fares appear to be 7% higher than in the last comparable World Traveller sale, and 12% higher than the last World Traveller Plus sale. This is largely driven by some cities, principally in North America, having escaped the ‘Sale’ fairy dust completely. Thankfully, many other fares are within £1 or £2 of the last sale’s prices.

Although premium cabins are not included in this promotion, there are some tactical offers still around. Washington DC, for example, is currently available from £3141.06 return in First Class, which is not only £52 cheaper than the last First Class sale fare, it also represents an upgrade cost of just £100 each way from Club World business class.

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. Following the April 2015 changes to the Executive Club, earnings rates have changed and Avios and Tier Point amounts can be checked using the Earnings Calculator.

For a full list of longhaul destinations and lowest fares, including the corresponding fare in the last ‘full’ sale (April 2015), click ‘READ MORE’ or scroll down.

British AirwaysBritish Airways has loaded sale fares for travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. As usual, Continental Club has the new fares before they’re publicly advertised, when availability is at its best. The fares are listed below and are available to book immediately at ba.com.

A specific promotional page for the sale will be loaded on the BA website later today. Until then, the British Airways Low Fare Finder is the easiest means of checking and booking the lowest fares.

British Airways Club World A380

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.

Sale fares must be booked by 9th June 2015, with travel dates varying by destination.

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 ‘Luxury World‘ sale in February 2015, rather than the more recent April 2015 listing, which included only selected destinations and was not officially billed as a ‘sale’ in premium cabins.

British Airways Business & First Class Sale Fares Loaded 30th April 2015

by Continental Club on April 30, 2015  |  One comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysAlongside reductions in its World Traveller (Economy) and World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) cabins – see here, British Airways has also loaded some sale fares for travel to selected destinations worldwide in its Club World Business and First Class cabins.

The BA website does not have a specific promotional page loaded for the premium cabin sale (such as it is). Instead, the British Airways Low Fare Finder is the easiest means of checking and booking the lowest fares.

British Airways Club World A380

As always, 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.

Given that these Sale fares are concurrent with the Economy & Premium Economy sale ongoing, the assumption is that the Club & First fares must also booked by 19th May 2015, with travel dates varying by destination. Digging into the fare rules suggests a variety of booking deadlines, and possibly also a further ‘official’ sale to come.

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 a significant number of fares which are not ‘Sale’ fares per se, but are listed for completeness, as well as the equivalent fares from the last ‘Luxury World‘ sale in February 2015.

The Ultimate British Airways Sale Fare Archive

by Continental Club on January 12, 2015  |  7 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.

More recently, the airline has released some short ‘flash’ sales for specific periods such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Destinations and dates are typically highly-restricted and therefore we generally don’t record these.

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.
