by Continental Club on October 27, 2016  |  One comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways has this morning loaded sale fares for 2016 and 2017 travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. Periods of availability vary by destination. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 8th November 2016. As usual, we try to be the first to announce new BA Sales, so once again we were ahead of any public advertising. Although the official Sale page has now been published, the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and Continental Club readers will hopefully benefit from the very best availability.

Club World fares are on average 2% higher than the last sale in August 2016 and First Class fares are just under 2.5% lower than last time. Business Class to the Caribbean and Latin America, and First Class to selected Middle East destinations look to be the best value propositions this time around. Newly-announced routes to New Orleans (launching from London Heathrow on 27th March 2017) and Fort Lauderdale (launching from London Gatwick on 6th July 2017) are available to book.

Club World fares are on average 10% higher than the last sale in June 2016 and First Class fares are just over 11% higher than last time, although in both cases this may be the result of not quite all fares being loaded yet. There are arguably fewer ‘stand-out’ fares in this sale than in previous ones, but Business Class to the Middle East look to be the best value propositions this time around.

British AirwaysBritish Airways has this morning loaded sale fares for 2016 and 2017 travel to destinations worldwide in their Club World Business and First Class cabins. Periods of availability vary by destination as usual, with the very lowest fares largely focused on Christmas and New Year once again, although some discounts also show across the Northern Summer 2016. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 12th July 2016. As usual, we try to be the first to announce new BA Sales, so once again we’re ahead of any public advertising. Until that starts, the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and Continental Club readers will hopefully benefit from the very best availability.

Club World fares are on average 5% lower than the last sale in April 2016. First Class fares are, again on average, just over 1% higher than last time, although the ‘stand-out’ fares in this sale are in fact in First to the Middle East and South Asia, with Abu Dhabi showing at £1645, Dubai at £1760, and Muscat at £1761. Mumbai in First is from £1927 and New Delhi is from £1923. Many of these destinations show First Class fares at an effective additional cost of just £200 each way on top of the Club sale fare.

Periods of availability vary by destination as usual, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 22nd March 2016.

Travel periods generally mirror peak leisure travel ‘holiday’ periods, although North American destinations are generally priced rather higher than in the last sale. Caribbean, Latin American and Middle Eastern fares are largely on a par with December 2015 sale prices, with the Far East & Australia mostly lower than the Winter promotion. The stand-out fare in this sale appears to be First Class to Delhi for Christmas 2016, which has availability at £1961 return – which we calculate to be a 40% saving on the previous price.

British Airways Club World Fares Easter 2016

by Continental Club on February 19, 2016  |  3 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysOur ear-to-the-air suggests that British Airways is loading some promotional Club World Business Class and First Class fares for last-minute travel this Easter 2016. It appears that almost all destinations are included in the promotion, for travel between 18th March and 8th April 2016 – at least for those routes whose fare rules that we’ve been able to check so far. The booking deadline is 28th February 2016.

Continental Club Air Fare Alert BA

Once again, our readers have the very best chance to access availability before headline advertising begins, and until an official ‘Sale’ page is published to the airline’s website, the BA Low Fare Finder at ba.com is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

If there’s a pattern to the presence of fares which are definitely ‘promotional’, it seems to be mostly on routes with multiple daily flights. Those with a single daily flight seem to be (currently) unaffected by this deal. Some destinations such as Miami and Los Angeles appear to be excluded too, at least for now.

For a list of currently available longhaul destinations and starting Club World fares, scroll down or click ‘READ MORE’ below. The listing includes the equivalent fares from the last full sale in December 2015.
