This is one of the rare middle-of-the-day posts that I run when something crops up which I don’t necessarily expect to be around for long.
Something odd is happening with British Airways Club World pricing to various destinations over Christmas. It is not clear if this is a fare mistake or if BA is just very keen to sell space on what will be fairly empty flights (in the pointy end, anyway).
The following destinations are currently bookable on ba.com from £1,000 return in Club World:
Bombay (£1,400, an outlier)
Mexico City (£1,008)
Sao Paulo (£1,008)
Remember that you would a slug of Avios points back as well – plus tier points – making the effective cost well under £1,000.
The fare rules are:
Outbound travel 22nd December to 1st January
Must return by 12th January
It is possible that other destinations are available as well although the good people of Flyertalk haven’t tracked any others down. Availability varies from good (Sao Paulo) to pretty poor, depending on route.
I would assume that these fares could also be upgraded to First Class, Avios availability permitting, but don’t quote me on that.
