NOW CHEAPER: Pay just £401 for Club World to New York in November, Christmas, Easter, July, August!

As there was a strong response to the article I ran on Thursday, I wanted to remind you that tomorrow – October 19th – is the last day to make substantial savings if you ‘part pay with Avios’ for a British Airways Club World or First booking.

Amazingly, the price for the Copenhagen to New York deal I discussed has come down even further.  You can now fly to New York for as little as £401!

Full details are on the ‘part pay with Avios’ page at ba.com,

These are the conditions.  You must be flying to:

Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Bangkok, Beijing, Bengaluru, Chengdu Shuangliu, Chicago, Dallas – Forth Worth, Delhi Indira Ghandi International, Dubai, Hong Kong, Houston, Hyderabad, JFK, Kuala Lumpur International, Las Vegas [Vegas is not pricing properly], Los Angeles, Mexico City, Montreal, Mumbai, Newark, Philadelphia International, San Francisco International, Seoul, Shanghai Pudong, Singapore Changi, Toronto, Vancouver, Washington

and

you must book by 19th October

and

you must book in Club World or First

You can then redeem Avios points for the following discounts:

1,500 Avios – £25

4,500 Avios – £75

11,250 Avios – £190

15,000 Avios – £250

30,000 Avios – £500

That is an exceptionally generous 1.66p per Avios point.

Now, here is is the interesting bit.  These offer is available for flights starting in Europe, not just in the UK.

This is deal I mentioned on Thursday – a great price from Copenhagen for flights to New York.  However, when I covered it on Thursday the price was DKK 9,607.  Now it is just DKK 9,125!

The outbound transatlantic flight (ie London to the US) must be flown between:

22 – 30 November

23 December – 2 January

19 March – 3 April

1 July – 31 August

For example:

British Airways Copenhagen New York

Yes, just 9,125 DKK return in Club World.  That is £899!  I can save a further 5,049 DKK by redeeming 30,000 Avios points:

This means that the final cost of my Club World return flight is just 4,076 DKK – or £401.

Not just Copenhagen ….

This deal also works out of Dublin and other places.  For April, for example, Dublin to New York is €1,533 but you save €672 by redeeming 30,000 Avios.  That is a net cost of only €861.

If you planning a long-haul flight for the next few months, you should experiment on ba.com with departures from the following cities:

Copenhagen

Dublin

Stockholm

Amsterdam

Milan Linate 

These are all destinations where BA has recently been offering strong discounts.  The ITA Matrix tool which I discussed here lets you search for prices from every European capital with one click.

You can learn more about ‘part pay with Avios’ at ba.com.  The key point to remember when booking is that all legs of your trip must be on British Airways or American – you cannot mix in flights on other airlines who are not part of the transatlantic joint venture.  If you do include other airlines, eg using Aer Lingus to connect from Dublin instead of BA, you will not be given the option to use ‘part pay with Avios’.

Remember that you need to book by Monday night.

  1. FURIOUS BEYOND WORDS! I TRANSFERED MY AVIOS TO BA ON SUNDAY TO BOOK TICKETS TODAY (I DID NOT KNOW YOU COULD LOG IN TO YOUR AVIOS ACCOUNT FROM THE BA WEBSITE). LOG IN TO BOOK TICKETS TO SEE EVERY AVIOS POINT HAS GONE DUE TO ‘EXPIRATION DATE’ THAT SHOWS NOWHERE ON MY AVIOS STATEMENT! 45 MINUTE PHONE CALL RESULTS IN BEING TOLD I ‘MAY’ GET THE POINTS BACK BUT IT WILL TAKE UP TO 72 HOURS, SO I CANNOT GET THIS DEAL. GRRRRRRRR

    • Not exactly difficult to buy something through the portals that all the sites run on shopping to generate 1 point every couple of years or whatever minimum it is they demand to keep a/cs active.

      You’d have to be incredibly unlucky (is that the right word?) if that happened to you.

      Sympathies.

  2. BA not showing discounts ex Europe now.
    Called exec club and they confirm restricted to LHR & LCY only departures.
    Buggah!

    • Just booked ex-CPH but you have to select economy first then select business when you are selecting flights

  3. Still showing on mine for ex CPH…60k for 10,098DKK off!?

  4. Finally…….. Bagged CPH LHR JFK at end of August., and I fancy a few days in CPH to practise my rather rusty Danish. Thanks for all the info. Delighted with deal

  5. Only allowing initial selection of economy now but if you click through you can select CW/Business

    I’m a bit new to this so please forgive me…

    I’ve got 65k points and a 2-4-1 voucher. If my CC points come through I should have another 45k points…. There is two adults and an infant (nearly two at time of travel). Trying to get a long haul holiday in before he is two…

    Quoted up CPP to JFK and got just over £1000 for two club world tickets with 60k avios and 13k return. Is it worth it, or should I wait for my additional points and see if I can get CW redemption for July 2016? I think the former may be better as I still have to pay tax on a redemption, which would be the same?

    Any ideas welcome!

    • With a 241 on a peak day you are looking at 120,000 Avios plus £1000 of tax, plus 10% for the infant. Buying the tickets now ex Copenhagen is better.

      However … you need to take a small child to Copenhagen and back which isn’t easy. You are also locked in – Avios redemptions can be cancelled with minimal penalty. You need to decide how important those two factors are in your mind.

      • Timothy Arnold says:

        Thanks!

        It sounds a great deal. I keel forgetting you have to go back through LHR which as you have stated could be difficult with a little one. It wouldn’t be so bad if it was a direct flight from CPP!! My son does like flying….

  7. Max discount I can get now is 758dkk so looks like the offer is over.

    • That’s a stroke of luck. I booked at 2226.

      • Lucky for me that is. I’m sorry you have missed it.

      • Same here, we booked literally about then, couldn’t decide between DUB and CPH but family won out. But we do have to meet someone at city ! on the way back so may get caught and not make it back to dub that evening! Used multi which worked well. Fab bargain all round.

  8. Very satisfied with my CPH-LHR/LCY-JFK-LHR-CPH booking for next spring.
