Well, this is potentially the best sale offer that I have ever run on Head for Points. We had the British Airways £777 Club World tickets to Seoul, but was a one-off promotion to launch a new route, and for a limited period. This is different.
For four days only – you need to book by August 18th – Air France / KLM is selling business class tickets from London and other regional airports to the following destinations for £999 return:
£999 business class to Dubai is pretty impressive. You can get this over October half-term – seats are available at the time of writing. I am currently sitting on reward tickets with ‘taxes’ which come to 60% of the cost of buying these Air France KLM tickets outright ….
To Japan, though, £999 return in business class is crazy. This is a l-o-n-g flight. I remember paying £1700 for a BA Club World seat about nine years ago and thinking I had got a good deal.
Even if you don’t want to visit Japan, it would make sense to fly to Tokyo for £999 and pay for a connection onwards. Remember that Japan Airlines is an Avios partner so you could redeem for a connection.
You may end up flying either Air France or KLM depending on route and which flight you select. The new Air France business class seat is still rolling out. I ran a few pictures of it earlier in the year although there is no guarantee that you would get this on any particular flight. You would need to be on a Boeing 777 to even have a chance of getting it. If you fly on a KLM 747 then you should get the new flat seat – it may be more pot luck with a 777.
These discounted tickets must be booked by 18th August. You can travel at any point to 31st March 2015.
