Example Fares – Long Haul

Below are some examples of the fares you can expect to find on long-haul routes in the latest British Airways sale but, as the list is far from exhaustive, you should check the sale page and the British Airways low fare finder tool for any specific routes you may be interested in.

First Class – Roundtrip

  • Atlanta – from £2,084
  • Austin – from £2,084
  • Boston – from £2,077
  • Chicago – from £1,993
  • Dallas – from £2,084
  • Denver – from £2,084
  • Houston – from £2,084
  • Las Vegas – from £1,989

  • Miami – from £2,084

The list above is very USA heavy but that’s only because that’s where most of the best deals are to be found. The fact that we’re being offered so may routes on which you can book First Class for under £2,000 is great and is a repeat of what we’ve seen in the recent past) but it’s worth noting that we’re not seeing any sub £1,800 First Class fares as we did around this time last year.

Once again I appear to have picked out a lot of US destinations to illustrate the deals that are available…but that’s because roundtrip Business Class for under £1,400 (available to a number of US cities) is considerably better than roundtrip Business Class of over £2,100 which is what’s being charged on a lot of non-US routes.

Bottom Line

It’s going to be worth comparing the cost of First Class and Business Class fares to the destinations that interest you most because in a number of cases it will be worth paying the difference to sit in the frontmost cabin.

If you’re looking to fly to the East Coast the difference between First and Business Class is probably going to be significant (and therefore probably not worth it) but if you’re looking to fly further afield (like destinations on the West Coast) you should be able to find First Class fares that cost just £400 more than the Business Class fares to the same destinations…and that’s when First Class becomes a noticeably better deal.

I haven’t delved into the short-haul deals or the holidays that are on sale but you’ll find details of both on the British Airways sale page.

  1. […] British Airways and Qatar Airways are both running very good Business Class sales right now (I’ve written about both today) and, if you know what to look for, it’s possible to combine some of the better offers from these sales to rack up a serious number of Tier Points in the British Airways Executive Club. It’s even possible to earn oneworld Sapphire status for under £1,600. […]

    • Now there’s an interesting dilemma: Would you prefer great credit card deals (and earnings) and infrequent great fares or poor credit card deals and frequent great Business Class fares?
