The BA Winter Sale offered better deals than these but, if you’re looking to fly to the US, some of these deals aren’t bad at all.

My personal favorites are the roundtrip Business Class fare to San Francisco from £1,383 (that’s a great deal if you can find dates which work for you) and the £2,200 First Class fare to Seattle….but there are a few others which look good too.

To Latin America & The Caribbean

Business Class (Roundtrip)

  • Buenos Aires – from £1,850
  • Cancun – from £1,594

  • Grand Cayman – from £1,800
  • Lima – from £1,678
  • Mexico City – from £1,475
  • Nassau – from £1,799
  • Rio de Janeiro – from £1,781
  • Sao Paulo – from £1,781

First Class (Roundtrip)

  • Mexico City – from £1,888

The standout deal here is the £1,888 roundtrip First Class fare to Mexico City (no other deal comes close to being as good as that in this region) but the £1,850 Business Class fare to Buenos Aires looks ok too.

  • Islamabad – from £1,500
  • New Delhi – from £1,859

First Class (Roundtrip)

I’m finding it hard to get excited about any of these fares. If you’ve been considering flying to any of these destinations then the reduced prices may be helpful but can’t see anything here to encourage me to plan a new trip.

To The Middle East, Indian Ocean & Africa

Business Class (Roundtrip)

  • Abu Dhabi – from £1,448

  • Cape Town – from £2,212
  • Dubai – from £1,698
  • Johannesburg – from £1,986
  • Muscat – from £1,697
  • Nairobi – from £1,775

First Class (Roundtrip)

  • Abu Dhabi – from £2,148
  • Nairobi – from £2,400
  • Seychelles – from £2,670

The two deals that look best (to me) here are the £1,698 Business Class fare to Muscat (Oman is beautiful) and the £2,670 First Class fare to the Seychelles (that’s a long flight so First Class will make a difference).

To The Far East & Australia

Business Class (Roundtrip)

  • Beijing – from £1,983

  • Hong Kong – from £1,983
  • Osaka – from £1,998
  • Shanghai – from £1,880

Link to Check Business Class fares to The Far East & Australia

First Class (Roundtrip)

  • Beijing – from £2,233
  • Hong Kong – from £2,583
  • Shanghai – from £2,233

Link to Check First Class fares to The Far East & Australia

Based on the prices being quoted for the Business Class fares it’s the First Class fares that offer all the value here – If I was prepared to pay £1,880 for Business Class to Shanghai I think I’d probably be willing to pay £433 more for First Class on a 11+ hour flight.
