Bits: BA £301 to Abu Dhabi, Priority Pass Black Friday deal update, HFP party

News in brief:

£301 British Airways deal to Abu Dhabi

British Airways added an extra Black Friday deal yesterday – economy flights to Abu Dhabi for £301.  This is a very good price if you are looking for some sun next Spring.

The travel dates are:

11 January – 20 March
21 April – 23 May
31 May – 10 June 

Remember that Dubai is a modest taxi ride away if Abu Dhabi does not appeal.  It took us 62 minutes and £40 to get from Abu Dhabi airport to Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai last month – I timed it!

Details of this deal and other flight deals are on this page of the BA website.

Priority Pass Black Friday update

One of the deals we discussed in our Black Friday article yesterday was a 25% to 40% discount on a Priority Pass lounge access card.

Unfortunately the deal was late going live and then used a specific URL which we were not told about.  The good news is that the deal is still running this weekend.  If you are interesting in getting a Priority Pass at a discount, this is the link you need.  Prices start at £41.

Head for Points Christmas Party

To be honest, I was a little nervous about how popular the HFP Christmas Party would be, especially as we gave less than two weeks notice.

However, all 150 tickets were snapped up yesterday with the last one being sold on the dot of 5pm.  This should make it the biggest frequent flyer gathering in the UK this year.  We look forward to seeing you all on the 6th.
