New £15 off £100 British Airways flight discount code launched

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

A new British Airways promotional code has appeared – this is the first one to launch this year as far as I know.

This new deal is in partnership with deals site LivingSocial, although you do not need to be a member to take part.

The deal is £15 off a £100+ short-haul flight from London Gatwick.

BA Living Social

Here are the terms and conditions:

Booking period: 28 February – 7 March 2014

Travel period:  1 March – 12 April 2014

Discount:  £15 off per booking, minimum spend of £100

Cabin: Euro Traveller, flights from London Gatwick to Europe

Europe, in this context, appears to mean Alicante, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bari, Bordeaux, Catania, Dubrovnik, Edinburgh, Faro, Geneva, Genoa, Glasgow, Ibiza, Innsbruck, Jersey, Lanzarote, Larnaca, Malaga, Malta, Marrakech, Naples, Nice, Paphos, Pisa, Rome, Salzburg, Tenerife, Thessaloniki, Tiran, Turin, Venice and Verona.

UK domestic flights, as you can see, are included.  (I did a dummy booking to check.)  This is despite the fact the terms and conditions say they are not!

You cannot combine this offer with ‘part pay with Avios’.

If you are booking for more than one person and the spend per passenger is over £100, it would make sense to book each person separately and save £15 on each.  (Remember, though, that free seat selection in this scenario would only be for status cardholders as the other passengers would be on separate bookings.)

Full details, include the promotional code you need to cut and paste, can be found here.

    Presumably if tickets are booked individually to take advantage of more discounts, then a quick call to BA to link the PNRs would enable seat selection to all pax, if one of them has status?

    “…Edinburgh…Glasgow…UK domestic flights, as you can see, are included.”

    I’m not surprised to see EDI and GLA classed as EuroTraveller flights after Willie Walsh’s comments on Scottish independence last week.

  • KARFA says:

    Also, even throught it says ET only, I have found that it seems to work with CE bookings as well. Tried LGW-JER-LGW and reduced by £15.

    Also you can combined an exLHR as well with a LGW route and the code still works. I did JER-LGW/LHR-HEL-LHR/LGW-JER and it worked.
