Our main article today is about the new British Airways short-haul seat.
As part of the PR operation to promote the new seat, BA is offering 1 million short-haul seats at reduced prices.
You need to book by June 25th. You can only fly from October 1st to April 30th 2015.
Secondly, Qatar Airways has launched a number of long-haul deals. These are valid in both Economy and Business Class.
These prices are NOT the cheapest you will ever see, although they aren’t bad. What is most useful is that the sale is valid for travel for a long time-period – from September 30th to March 31st 2015. If you were planning a long-haul trip over the Winter, you might want to take a look at the fares.
You need to book by June 20th. The promotional website is here.
