I have dropped this in as one of the rare ‘middle of the day’ posts because this is a genuinely impressive deal.

All participating destinations are just £1,007 per person return.

    Interesting. I have Virgin reward flights booked for Vegas during this period. If I can find availability on BA does anyone know if I can cancel Virgin without penalty. Thanks.

    • Raffles says:

      You pay a small fee but you will get the miles and the rest of the cash back.

    • Clive J says:

      I can answer this myself now. Found availability with BA for the dates I needed (and got an extra day in Vegas) with BA at £1,002. Real easy experience in cancelling the Virgin reward flights through chat function. Got all my Flying Club miles back but forfeited the YQ fees around £300. Great deal, and shows how valuable this site is. Thanks Raffles.

    Travel a week ago on similar dates to mumbai . And paid a lot lot more

    NYE on Copacabana Beach, here I come. Crazy prices. Was odd seeing Club cheaper than WT and WT+!

    • Mikee says:

      Jason, you will have a blast! Did the same with my girlfriend last year in the BA Sale and it was amazing.

    Just booked a sneaky last minute visit to see the eldest child at university of Calgary! They wanted just over £1000 club world, just over £2000 for economy
