BA Sale Part 2: Good First and Club World flight and BA Holidays deals from £1,200

British Airways Holidays has launched a new round of First Class and Club World flight and holiday bargains.

Click here to take a look at some of the deals available with Club World flights.

Some of the headline prices look good.  These are the ‘lead in’ flight and hotel offers based on Club World flights:

New York – £1,406 including three nights in a 4* hotel

Toronto – £1,204 including three nights in a 4* hotel

Los Angeles – £1,693 including SIX nights in a 4* hotel

Boston – £1,340 including three nights in a 4* hotel

These prices are based on two people sharing.

BA Holidays

Remember that with BA Holidays, you don’t even have to pay now!   You can pay a deposit and then settle the balance in the Autumn.  You also earn 2 Avios per £1 for booking with BA Holidays on top of the Avios you will earn from the flights and from your credit card.

(One minor downside is that BA Holidays packages do not earn On Business points in BA’s small business loyalty scheme for the flights.)

There are also some impressive Club World flight deals available, for booking by 12th July.  Seats are bookable into May 2017 in most cases:

New York – £1,308 return

Atlanta – £1,356 return

Chicago – £1,260 return

Montreal – £1,155 return

Toronto – £1,128 return

Seattle – £1,176 return

Dubai – £1,360 return

Abu Dhabi – £1,245 return

Las Vegas – £1,376 return

San Francisco – £1,581 return

Other destinations are available too, but the deals are less compelling outside the Middle East and North America.

You should take a look at First Class pricing as well.  It is often available for just £400 return extra on the Middle East routes.  

£1,645 First Class to Abu Dhabi, for example, is fantastic – especially as you will be in the very small F cabin on a Boeing 787-9.

If you are based outside London, it is also worth comparing BA prices starting in Dublin or Amsterdam.  You may be able to make even bigger savings.  There are also some very good deals out of Paris to New York at the moment on BA and its sister airline – which flies direct – Open Skies.

The BA Holidays Club World sale page is here.

To find out which months have the cheapest fares, you might want to start your search with the British Airways Low Fare Finder tool which is here.  That £1,176 deal to Seattle is only available for December and January, for example, when you may find it a little nippy!

    when will the next sale be likely

  2. Genghis says:

    OT but BA related and sharing experience. Booked BA avios open jaw flight last night using 241 on the phone. As usual got the telephone booking fee waived (“I’ll just check with the supervisor”) and paid with a different Amex card (I said it was in wife’s name (who’s 241 it is) but actually in mine. Payment went through no problem.

  3. Those are amazing prices when you take into account the £555 in charges that you pay for a CW/F Avios redemption to North America. And much more availability too.

  4. Just curious, do any of hilton, spg or hyatt count rooms booked through a TA like BA holidays towards elite qualification criteria? I get that you wont get benefits, but does the stay at least count?

    • No, if they don’t count for benefits then you won’t receive stay credits (occasionally you’re lucky and do receive them but in general I wouldn’t count on it). Payment on check-out (e.g. for Amex FHR) is fine, but for pre-payment you either need to book direct with a hotel or via a corporate/offline travel agent (and beware that some offline TAs use special deal rates which in themselves aren’t eligible)

  5. Dominic says:

    The £400 extra is not just on the Middle East. I found it for my own home destination in Chicago!

  6. Michelle Booth says:

    Thanks for all the great info. Is there anyway I can use a companion voucher for a BA holiday or fly drive or can they only be used for flights ?

  7. Michael says:

    Does anyone know how to price these BA Holiday options departing from outside the UK?
    I’ve tried the Ireland site but there are no mention of these offers and the UK site doesn’t allow you to select a non-UK airport.

  8. Slightly OT again, there’s no way to hit spg plat or hh diamond through spend in the uk is there? I think both have routes to top status in the US via credit card spending. VERY annoying

    • Find a friend with an Amex Centurion, give them £500 to cover a 2nd supp, get HH Diamond plus all other hotel cards.

      An SPG Plat challenge is possible if you enrol. Book a few weekends at Heathrow at £45 per night (you get credit for 3 rooms per night(. Would be under £1k.

  9. Missus and I booked to go to Barbados, 2 weeks in October dep LGW (1st-15th), Hilton exec room (Silver currently) and CW flights…£2500pp…did a week in Abu Dhabi last year booked through BA Holidays, Hilton hotel and got full credit towards stays and points. Gold here we come!!

  10. Help me out please… Is 2000 room only for 2 in New York, incl return flights American Airlines from Manchester for 6 nights in easter hols a good deal?

    It sounds like it, but is American Airlines any good? The hotel is 26/475 on trip advisor (The New York Edition and looks pretty good..) I think I just need convincing to go for it as cheapest flights I can see are 80000 Avios plus 600 or cash is around 1400 for 2, so this looks like a great deal to me unless anyone knows any different?…

    • The LHR – JFK route with AA has nice business class seats (1-2-1 with direct aisle access for all). Beware on the return flight you’re not covered for EU261 though – I got stuck for 10h in JFK overnight on the way back and got a $16 meal voucher and 10k AA miles, nothing in comparison to EU261 cover! Obviously shouldn’t be a common occurrence but would be a reason to have BA coming back to the UK if that was an option.

      • Thanks Alan.. I went via BA site but it comes up with American Airlines for some reason.. I will check again and see if can fly BA as I like them..

        • Its not good.. BA has to go via Heathrow so 3 hours each way for a connection whereas AA is direct.. Just checked reviews for AA and they do not look good… aargh.. back to the drawing board..

          • Ah sorry, had missed that it was direct from MAN. I think it’s only the LHR flights that have the nice refitted/new planes :(

            • Ah never at the moment I am on 896 each now for 6 nights in New York 5 star hotel room only direct from Manchester with American Airlines.. easter holiday prices as well..
              I am very happy with the hotel as its about 300 a night if booked separately….
              My only concern is American Airlines as they have got bad reviews for time keeping and I am not sure if you get complimentary drinks on board like BA?
              I think I am going for it, unless someone advises me otherwise..It is about 50 percent cheaper that a lot of other sites like Expedia,…Thanks a lot..

  11. Genghis says:

    Good luck if you can get BA to pay out!

  12. My last lot is on confirmed, just waiting for it to payout, so worth a try I think..
