BA Club World: Worldwide Destinations For £1007 Rtn

by Continental Club on November 28, 2014  |  4 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysIn what might be the ‘airline fare deal of the year from the UK,’ British Airways has loaded Club World offers to some of its most popular longhaul destinations for an advertised £1007 per person return – representing a saving of up to 67% on the previous business class fare. Flights must be booked by midnight Thursday 4th December 2014. Outbound travel dates are between 21st December 2014 and 3rd January 2015, with all inbound travel to be complete by 11th January 2015.

The discounted fares earn full credit with both the British Airways Executive Club loyalty programme and also the OnBusiness Small & Medium Enterprise corporate rewards programme.

Owing to variations in, presumably, tax calculations and foreign exchange rates, the actual fares on sale can go a little lower than £1007 – down to £999 per person in return in some cases.

For full details and to book, visit the special ‘2 for £2014‘ offer page at ba.com.

Chennai £1,794 £1,694 £1,594 £1,494

Sydney £3,221 £3,121 £3,021 £2,921
Brisbane £3,224 £3,124 £3,024 £2,924

 

Bookings must be made by 28th February, with a 72hr minimum advance purchase requirement. For full details and to book, visit the Companion Fares page at emirates.com/uk.

However: Emirates Airline has also issued a promotional code which offers substantial discounts on selected First Class companion fares departing from Spain. To qualify, two passengers must travel together by 30th June 2013, and bookings must be made by 28th February.

Emirates fly from both Barcelona and Madrid, employing Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on the routes to Dubai and featuring their First Class seat product. Passengers travelling onward from Dubai can select services operated by A380 and B777 aircraft fitted with Emirates First Class Suite.

The fares are (including conversion from xe.com with a 3% credit card exchange fee):

Destination First Class Fares per person GBP Equivalent
Dubai 3,006 € £2515
Bahrain 2,999 € £2510
Delhi 3,055 € £2560
Dhaka 3,026 € £2532
Narobi 3,020 € £2527
Johannesburg 3,039 € £2543
Maldives 3,003 € £2512
Seychelles 3,028 € £2533
Bangkok 3,052 € £2553
Singapore 3,060 € £2560
Auckland 4,512 € £3775
Sydney 4,520 € £3782

 

Commencing the longhaul journey from Spain clearly adds an extra flight into most travellers’ itineraries, however the opportunity to enjoy First Class service at these fares may still interest other European passengers – particularly those who are members of Emirates Skywards loyalty programme who will earn increased miles in First. Both Barcelona and Madrid are linked directly to many European cities, including some which don’t currently enjoy Emirates service. For passengers originating in those cities, a connecting flight would be required anyway.

For full details and to book, visit emirates.com/es/english/ and use promo code ESCMP13.
