British Airways launches special Club World deals for Easter travel

If you haven’t got your Easter holidays booked yet – or if you have booked a redemption but could be tempted to change it if a good cash deal came along – British Airways may have a deal for you …..

BA has launched a series of ‘flight only’ and ‘flight and hotel’ deals in Club World.  For slightly odd reasons, the ‘flight and hotel’ packages are general cheaper than the ‘flight only’ deals!

The following routes are included:  all of North America except Miami and LA, the South America routes, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Sydney, the India routes, Jo’burg, Lagos (not sure of the Easter holiday attractions there!), Tel Aviv, Dubai

  1. What is it with the package price beating flight only? I booked Dubai in First for 5 nights plus hotel in the recent seat sale and saved £300 off the fight only fare! It’s odd?

    • Quite often the tour fare (BA Hols) will be cheaper than the seat only fare. Just make sure you check the rules – often more restrictive than the seat only fares are

  2. No ex EU deals this time?

  3. Hi Rob ,
    I am a Nigerian , from Lagos. And Easter is a very big part of the holiday period in Nigeria. The festivities in Lagos are totally amazing , arguably a Nigerian would prefer to be in Lagos than the Uk during the Easter period. The BA deal is most likely aimed at Nigerians in the UK who would want to go home and celebrate Easter with their families. And Rumour has it that the Lagos -London route is one of the most profitable airline routes (even Virgin have not scrapped theirs). And finally , there are also loads of tourist attractions in Lagos…..so someday , hopefully , you will visit Lagos….**smiles**

    • No offence meant. I was writing from the point of view of a family sitting around the dining table, weighing up different holiday destinations and then going ‘no, forget Dubai, let’s go to Lagos’ …

      • Oh my , quite alot of comments. I am sure you meant no offence when you wrote that. My post was supposed to be a “tongue in cheek” response. I understand what you meant…
        People, i do not agree with you vilifying Rob. If you have follwed this site well enough , you would get his quotes. Thanks for all the tips and information.

    • Having waited for my fiancée at T3 shortly after the Virgin Lagos flight got in I can imagine how profitable it must be, every passenger had at least 4 bags!

    Hi Rob

    The responder from Nigeria was very generous. My views are your comments are misinformed at best and careless or crass and disrespectful. A man of your experience should not make such sweeping comments in the usual way that Africans are put down by the west and its propaganda. First Ask British airways why Lagos was included, they obviously know where the money is. Second, u will find from your geography and history books the wealth and diversity that Nigeria brings to 500 million Africans and black people and their friends in diaspora.

    • I don’t think that was Raffles’ intention. On Nigeria though, around 10 years ago I applied for a role at an NGO in Abuja and booked flights 6 weeks before I was due to go. I applied for my visa (which required evidence of flights) and the bureaucratic machine took 3 months for me to be given a visa after so much chasing. I’m sure if I’d put some crisp £50s in with my application, things might have gone much more smoothly.

    • See my other response. No offence meant, obviously.

    • If Lagos is such a successful route, why does it need to be included in the sale?

  5. Does that imply though that New York is not a successful route?

    • I would imagine it is similar to Christmas in that there are fewer business travellers over the main holiday periods and therefore harder to fill business and first class seats over those periods to business destinations at full price. Notice the Gatwick leisure routes are not included.

  6. I guess Tel Aviv and Chengdu also have marginal appeal to the vast majority of HFP leisure travelers that have yet to travel to those destinations. So in my view it’s also good Rob listed them too.

    And whilst I personally have no burning desire to visit Lagos (or anywhere else in Nigeria for that matter), it is really encouraging to note the increasing diverse readership that HFPs reaches.

    Again no harm or offence intended in my comments. Interesting thing about taking offence, I consider it to be a human right to be offended, it increasingly happens living in a society that allows free speech, so I embrace it all.

  7. I agree with Henry Andrews. I think to single out Lagos out of a long list of destinations and make the comment that you are “not sure of the Easter holiday attractions there!” is pejorative at best. Was it really necessary to make that comment? How has it added to the meaning of your article? You may not have consciously intended to cause disrespect but the comment could reasonably be interpreted as highly disrespectful and suggests to me an element of unconscious bias in your representation of the world, which I am sure you now regret. I advise that you edit it out and offer an apology. While I accept that “no harm or offence” was intended, most people will not read as far as the comments and it is the possibility unintentional harm or offence which will risk your reputation.

    Nobody sane from the West would go to Nigeria for their holiday unless they had compelling family reasons.

    The country is in the midst of a quasi civil war with all travel to over half the country seen as very inadvisable.

    OTOH you might meet somebody who will make you a multi-millionaire just by lending them your bank account.

    • Very highly educated country. All my Nigerian friends are Doctors or Senior Politicians.

      Plus they are extremely wealthy.

      Generous, as well.

  9. Everything is relative guys, the comment is pejorative at best, he has already apologised, no need to add more pejorative/ignorant comments.
    The USA have Donald Trump, who wants to go there
    China is culturally more adverse than Nigeria and the list goes on…
    So can we please stop showing how ignorants and uncultured British people are and now focus on who got a great deal on the sale?
    Cheers!!!!
