British Airways has launched its latest sale. It offers discounts on Club Europe / Club World and First Class flights and holiday packages.
You need to book by September 23rd.
The best way to see what is on offer for what month is to use the month-by-month Low Fare Finder tool on the British Airways website.
Some of the deals highlighted by the Low Fare Finder look OK. New York in Club World is as low as £1594 in some months. Abu Dhabi is as low as £1479 but, wierdly, Dubai never goes below £1899. Abu Dhabi is a very modest taxi drive from Dubai.
Fare to India in Club World look good at around £1300 in some months.
As always, though, it depends on where you are planning to go and what comparable Avios availability is there.
There are also short-haul deals in Club Europe available. Barcelona from Gatwick at £181 is exceptionally low.
Here is the small print on travel dates and minimum stays:
Travel to all destinations must include a Saturday night stay, except Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Bahrain, Doha, Riyadh, Amman, Beirut, Tel Aviv and Cairo, where all travel must have a minimum 3 day stay.
