These fares have been around for four days now. I originally thought that it was a fare error by British Airways and that it would be closed down within a few hours. It wasn’t.
I therefore have to assume that British Airways is genuinely wanted to sell First Class tickets from Krakow or Warsaw (your choice) to any of its Caribbean destinations for around £1,300.
Followers of our Instagram feed will know that I am in Venice at the moment so this article is not as in-depth as I would normally do, but you will find out all you need to know.
Here are some sample prices I pulled up last night:
Warsaw to St Lucia, First Class – £1,298
Warsaw to Port of Spain, First Class – £1,347
Krawkow to Bermuda, First Class – £1,309 (you can route this via New York for extra tier points but you cannot stop more than 24 hours)
It also works on the other Caribbean routes which have a First Class cabin. The only one where I had trouble getting it to price was Barbados.
Note that, as all of the Caribbean flights leave from Gatwick, you will need to transfer from Heathrow (where the Poland flights arrive) and should leave suitable time.
It seems that these fares CAN be cancelled although the fee is steep (PLN 1,275 or £219).
The fare basis is ANCSALE for those of you who care about these things! The fare rules are:
Book by 26th September
Travel OUTBOUND before 10th December or between 4th January and 14th March 2016
Requires A class availability in First Class
The requirement to start your trip in Poland and the fact that you are still spending £1,300 per ticket means that this is not the greatest sale deal of all time. If you were planning a trip to the Caribbean this Winter, though, it is well worth considering. Head over to ba.com and have a poke around.
