British Airways has been running a UK sale on flights and holidays since the beginning of the month and the deals were supposed to be being pulled yesterday, 24 September…but the deals are still there.
British Airways has now extended its worldwide sale to 1 October so you still have a few days to snag a good Business Class fare or a nicely discounted holiday to somewhere considerably warmer and sunnier than the UK in winter.
The British Airways Sale
- Book by 1 October 2019
- Travel dates vary by destination
- Minimum stay requirements are in effect and vary by destination
- Example prices shown are for departures from London’s Heathrow, Gatwick and City airports.
For full restrictions and the terms and conditions please visit the British Airways sale page.
British Airways Long-Haul Business Class Fares
I always recommend that readers use the low fare finder tool when searching for good deals (across all cabins) but, for those who’d like a taster of what fares are still on offer, here are a few long-haul Business Class fares I’ve just seen on BA.com:
- Abu Dhabi – £1,454
- Atlanta – £1,658
- Austin – £1,572
- Boston – £1,507
- Calgary – £1,602
- Chicago – £1,526
- Denver – £1,547
- Houston – £1,594
- Los Angeles – £1,671
- Mexico City – £1,484
- Miami – £1,679
- Montreal – £1,398
- Nashville – £1,497
- New Orleans – £1,446
- New York – £1,316
- Pittsburgh – £1,578
- Philadelphia – £1,381
- Punta Cana – £1,642
- San Diego – £1,659
- San Francisco – £1,564
- San Jose (Costa Rica) – £1,594
- San Jose (USA) – £1,487
- Seattle – £1,542
- Toronto – £1,374
- Vancouver – £1,622
- Washington D.C – £1,492
I’ve used a cut off of £1,699 for the Busines Class fares I’ve chosen to use as examples in the list above as any long-haul Business Class fare below that price point is a genuinely good deal…especially for departures from London.
Almost all other BA worldwide destinations are also on sale as well and there are deals to be had in First Class and Premium Economy too (use the low fare finder to check for yourself if your preferred destination isn’t in the list above) but the best deals appear to be found amongst the Business Class fares.
On the whole, there are still some very nice deals on offer in the British Airways sale (I’m guessing that the strike days and threat of further strikes haven’t done much to help BA fill its aircraft) but it’s also fair to say that there aren’t as many great as we’ve seen in past sales – outside of destinations in North America there aren’t than many truly good deals on offer.
Don’t forget that BA is offering a double Avios promotion for all fares booked by 13 December with travel taken by 20 June 2020 so this could be a good opportunity to pair a good fare with a lot more Avios than you’d normally earn.
