British Airways Business & First Class Sale Fares Loaded 10th October 2019

by Continental Club on October 10, 2019  |  One comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British Airways has loaded sale fares for the remainder of 2019 and 2020 travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. Travel dates vary by destination, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 29th October 2019. An official ‘Sale’ page has been published to the airline’s website at ba.com, and, as always, the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

Most longhaul destinations in Business Class are included in this sale, although there are some obvious omissions from the First Class routes, particularly to Latin America and the Caribbean.

In this sale, Johannesburg in Club World is one of the standout fares in this sale, starting at £1709 return from London.

In addition, British Airways is advertising the availability of special companion fares for two passengers travelling together. Destinations included in this particular offer are listed as The Seychelles, Kingston, Durban, Nairobi, Johannesburg, Islamabad, Chennai, Kuala Lumpur, Nassau, Santiago, Sao Paolo, Singapore and Sydney. In practice, however, it seems as the fares for two to some of these destinations are simply the cost of two solo fares, so there may potentially be an error somewhere. Durban at £2999 for two is almost two-for one, whereas Nairobi at £2499 for two is no better than the sum of the solo costs.

On a simple average, fares are overall 2% lower in Club and 6% lower in First Class than in the August 2019 Sale, which has the effect of bringing fares back towards those shown in the preceding May 2019 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

British Airways has now loaded sale fares in its World Traveller (Economy) and World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) cabins for travel to destinations worldwide on selected dates throughout 2019 and the first half of 2020. Periods of availability vary by destination, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 24th September 2019. An official ‘Sale’ page is published to the airline’s website at ba.com but, as always, the BA Low Fare Finder is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

Overall, Economy fares are 2% higher than in the last full sale on a simple average basis and Premium Economy fares are on a par. Sydney is down to £628 from £655 return in Economy, while New York sheds the pounds in Premium Economy; down to £560 from £726 in May. Likewise Boston is down from £747 to £547.

Conversely, Phoenix – which returns to Heathrow’s Terminal 5, but also switches from 747-400 to 777-300 equipment from March 2020 – rises from £408 to £509 for Economy lead-in fares, and from £872 to £953 in Premium.

The Middle East and Africa generally see higher starting fares than in the last sale, with the exception of The Seychelles – Economy is down from £695 to £614, and Premium eases from £956 to £831.

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.

Although the ba.com Sale page is live, the fastest way to check availability and to book may still be to visit the Low Fares Finder at ba.com.

British Airways Business & First Class Sale Fares Loaded 30th August 2019

by Continental Club on August 30, 2019  |  One comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

It has been some time coming, but British Airways has loaded sale fares for 2019 and 2020 travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. Travel dates vary by destination, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 24th September 2019. An official ‘Sale’ page has been published to the airline’s website at ba.com, and, as always, the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

Destinations included in this sale appear to be balanced between business and leisure routes. Caribbean and Indian Ocean destinations are included this time, unlike in March when they were absent from the promotional listings.

Mexico City in First Class from £1898 continues to be one of the standout fares in this sale, as it has been in the last two. Once again, availability is extremely limited at these fares, but seats are definitively available. First Class fares are otherwise fairly unremarkable in this sale, with numerous destinations such as San Francisco being offered only at significantly higher fares than last time around.

It’s a similar story in Club World, with most fares the same or more than last time. On a simple average, fares are overall 8% higher in Club and 14% higher in First Class than in the May 2019 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

British Airways has now loaded sale fares in its World Traveller (Economy) and World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) cabins for travel to destinations worldwide on selected dates throughout 2019 and the first months of 2020. Periods of availability vary by destination, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 21st May 2019. An official ‘Sale’ page is published to the airline’s website at ba.com but, as always, the BA Low Fare Finder is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

Overall, Economy fares are 5% higher and Premium Economy fares are 6% higher than in the last full sale on a simple average basis. Sydney is now £655 return in Economy, from £617 in December, though down from £697 the previous year. However, Los Angeles sheds another £34 from its last Premium Economy sale fare, while Vancouver loses an additional £20 compared to last time around. Dubai, Doha and Abu Dhabi all see lower Premium Economy fares than in the last sale.

Looking West in Economy, it’s Los Angeles and San Jose (California) that benefit from the lowest £268 fares. Some of these new, low, Economy prices are partly driven by the airline’s recent move to offer hand luggage only deals on longhaul, as well as shorthaul routes.

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 Airways has loaded sale fares for 2019 and 2020 travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. Travel dates vary by destination, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 21st May 2019. An official ‘Sale’ page has been published to the airline’s website at ba.com, but this is not yet being advertised on the homepage, so Continental Club readers are, as usual, able to access the best availability before public promotion begins. And, as always, the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

Destinations included in this sale appear to be balanced between business and leisure routes. Caribbean and Indian Ocean destinations are included this time, unlike in March when they were absent from the promotional listings.

Mexico City in First Class from £1887 was one of the standout fares in the last sale; this time it’s even cheaper from £1848. As before, availability is extremely limited at these fares, but seats are definitively available. First Class fares to North America are also significantly lower than in the last sale, with many destinations seeing fares at a flat supplement of £400 return over the Club World Business Class 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 OnBusiness SME Loyalty programme for eligible members.

British Airways Business & First Class Sale Fares Loaded 7th March 2019

by Continental Club on March 16, 2019  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British Airways has extended its sale for 2019 and early 2020 travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. Travel dates vary by destination, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must now be booked by 23:59 GMT on 26th March 2019 giving an extra seven days to the promotional period. An official ‘Sale’ page has been 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.

Destinations included in this sale appear to be predominantly those with more business than leisure demand. Caribbean and Indian Ocean destinations are not included, although the current non-sale fares are listed below to still allow comparisons.

Some Far East destinations would be the stand out fares in this sale, with Beijing and Hong Kong from £1999 in Business Class, and Shanghai from just £2249 in First. These fares are overshadowed by some fares to Central and South America, however. Club World Business Class to Sao Paulo is unprecedented from £997 return, and Mexico City in First Class from £1887. Availability is, of course, extremely limited at these fares, but seats are definitively available.

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.

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.
