British AirwaysBritish Airways has loaded a short Winter sale of World Traveller (Economy) and World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) fares for travel to destinations worldwide on selected dates. As usual, Continental Club is ahead of the public launch of the sale, giving readers the best chance to access availability before headline advertising begins. Periods of availability are generally limited and vary by destination, reflecting seasonal demand variations. 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.

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

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

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.
