Ok, I’ll admit it, I’m a little late with this post…but better late than never!
British Airways is currently running a flash sale out of London in which it is offering significant discounts on Business Class and First Class fares to all parts of the world.
There’s are just two little catches – you have to buy tickets in pairs, and you have to be prepared to travel by 30 September 2019.
- Most areas of the world are included
- Deals are only available when buying flights multiples of 2 people
- All fares quoted are for departures out of London but good fares are available from other UK airports too (routing via London)
- Book by 19 August 2019
- Travel must take place between now and 30 September 2019
- Most fares appear to require a Saturday night stay
Here are a few of the better Business Class deals British Airways is offering (prices are for two people traveling together):
- Abu Dhabi – £2,019
- Abuja – £2,999
- Accra – £3,019
- Atlanta – £2,399

- Washington D.C. – £2,019
If you’re looking for Club Europe deals you should check out the sale page via this link (and scroll to the bottom of the page).
Also, before you make any flight-only reservations, you should make sure you check to see what deals the British Airways Holidays page is offering – it’s quite possible you’ll find a flight + hotel deal that better than the price of the standalone flights.
These are some great fares on offer in this sale but it’s a shame that there’s no love for solo travelers here.
It’s unusual to see British Airways posting sale fares for travel this close-in so I’m not entirely sure why BA ha suddenly chosen to launch these deals…but why the deals are available really doesn’t matter right now.
What matters is that some of these deals are among the best BA Business Class fares we’ve seen this year (Las Vegas for just £1,009.50 per person is a fantastic price) and this could be a very good time to earn some extra Tier Points (or AAdvantage Elite Qualifying Miles) towards whatever status level you’re chasing.
Don’t forget to use the dedicated sale page to find and book these fares and remember that you need to book tickets in multiples of two to get the deals highlighted above.
If you’re hoping to try out the new British Airways Club Suite be aware that the Toronto and New York routes will not be offering the product before the valid travel dates have passed, but with Dubai expected to get the new Business Class cabin from 2 September, you still have a chance of seeing what all the excitement is about 🙂
