British AirwaysBritish Airways has 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 17th May 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 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.

New York Economy fares, for example, are valid for travel between 25th December 2015 and 13th January 2016. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 30th November 2015. Update: the Black Friday Sale fare page is now live at ba.com.

BA A380 World Traveller

Overall, average sale fares appear to be 4% lower than in the last comparable World Traveller and World Traveller Plus sale.

The reservation system also shows sale fares being loaded in the airline’s Club World business and First Class cabins, and we will publish a separate list of these as soon as we have collated them.

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 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.

1400x475-big-british-airways-take-off-carousel

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

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.

BA A380 Y

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.

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.

To check the best current fares at any time, visit the Low Fare Finder at ba.com.

British Airways Premium Economy Sale Fares Loaded 13th December 2014

by Continental Club on December 13, 2014  |  2 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , ,

In a follow-up to our post on British AirwaysBritish Airways  World Traveller (economy) sale fares, the airline’s World Traveller Plus (premium economy) promotional fares are now feeding through to the booking system.

The full range of fares for Premium Economy sale fare travel to all British Airways longhaul destinations has now been loaded, and the sale fare listing at the end of this post has been completed and updated as of 17th December 2014. Some previously-published sale fares have now been reduced slightly further. Check ba.com for full details, or scroll down for a comprehensive list.

As we mentioned earlier, regular readers and browsers of the Continental Club British Airways Sale Fares Archive will observe that this sale also comes rather earlier than we’re used to seeing in December – and it seems that the fares are being loaded progressively rather than the in the usual ‘fell-swoop’.

BA A380 World Traveller Plus

Newly-announced destinations are included in the premium economy sale though, including Kuala Lumpur from £1003 return.

Bookings must be made by 27th January 2015, with travel dates, minimum stay and advance purchase requirements varying by destination.

There is a ‘sale‘ page live on the British Airways website, but the quickest way to check availability and to book is to visit the Low Fares Finder at ba.com. The terms and conditions section of the sale page do make reference to not just World Traveller and World Traveller Plus, but also to Club World and First Class fares. It’s possible that fare reductions for travel in those cabins are therefore ahead.

All 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.

For a full list of longhaul destinations and lowest fares, including the corresponding fare in the last sale (August 2014), click ‘READ MORE’ or scroll down.
