With the pilots' union claiming that it's taking the high-road in negotiations with management, it's now British Airways' turn to try to get back on the good side of customers by launching a double Avios promotion which will run through most of the remainder of this year.
Up until now there hadn't been any signs that the third day of British Airways pilot walkouts (set for 27 September) wasn't going to go ahead and the airline had already started canceling flights ahead of time to try to limit its liabilities. It's fair to say that the relationship between the pilots and management couldn't really have become much worse...but now something has changed.
United Airlines has pushed through a sizeable number of service, schedule and aircraft changes over the past few days and the net result of these changes is that some of the airline's routes will cease to offer true Polaris Business Class (some just for a short period of time) while some will see it added.
Right now TAP Air Portugal is offering Business Class flights between Oslo and New York for an incredibly low price and when you add in the 10% discount code that the airline is currently offering Traveling For Miles readers the deal gets even better.
On Thursday I wrote about a number of pretty good Qatar Airways Business Class deals that are currently available for departures from the US. The deals I wrote about out at the time were the ones being promoted by the airline and were somewhat India-centric so, after having had time to search for some other fares, I'm back with a few more suggestions that take in a few more locations in Asia.
TAP Air Portugal has once again come up with a 10% discount code for Traveling For Miles readers looking to save some cash on transatlantic and intra-European Business Class and Economy Class fares.
Qatar Airways has launched a global sale with deals on offer for departures from just about every country the airline serves. As usual, as far as deals out of Europe go some of the best fares available are for departures out of the Nordic countries and you’ll find a number of these deals in the post below.
With Virgin Atlantic launching its A350 on the London – New York JFK route earlier this week there’s been quite a bit of press coverage of the new aircraft but one tidbit of information that Virgin Atlantic’s PR team put out caught my eye – not all of Virgin’s A350s will be configured in the same way.
Qatar Airways is running a worldwide sale through 15 September and, unusually, there are some pretty good deals for departures out of the US this time around. The routes on which Qatar Airways is offering its very best fares aren’t exactly numerous but anyone looking to travel to India will probably like what they see below.
esterday was a big day for Virgin Atlantic as the airline launched its brand new Airbus A350 aircraft (complete with new cabins) on its London - New York (JFK) route. With British Airways not scheduled to operate an aircraft with its new Club Suite on its own London - New York route until late October, Virgin Atlantic has stolen a march on one of its biggest competitors.
