(EDIT: Not currently bookable, expired?) – BA Club World to New York for £900 ex-Switzerland (and other deals)

(EDIT:  These flights are not pricing correctly this morning, despite still being advertised on ba.com.  It is possible that it may have expired on Friday night.  I will post an update if I can get to the bottom of it.  Apologies for any inconvenience!)

British Airways has launched a number of very cheap business class deals out of Switzerland.  These are well worth a look if you are planning any long-haul travel over the next six to nine months.

Full details can be found on the Swiss version (in English) of ba.com here.

It is important to note that these are published fares!  They are not fare errors and there is a 0% chance of BA cancelling your ticket on you.  If the Swiss Franc wasn’t so strong against Sterling at the moment these fares would be astounding – as it is, they are still very good.

British Airways BA 787

These are the destinations listed on ba.com as under £1,500 return, assuming an exchange rate of £1 = CHF 1.5.  Other cities may well be available at these prices:

New York – CHF 1,350 (£900)

Boston – CHF 1,448 (£965)

Sao Paulo – CHF 1,914 (£1,276)

Port of Spain – CHF 1,947 (£1,298)

  1. Andy Green says:

    Are these return prices? I can’t seem to get these prices and have tried varying dates in March and April 2016

  2. Andy Green says:

    Also Raff the link you have posted above directs me to the webpage but when I click on the destination, New York for example it then says “no search available” hopefully this is just a temporary glitch. It would be nice to book in a cheeky few days away over Easter next year

  3. Adam Mosey says:

    Although the front BA screen States as above, when you go into choose the flights (Miami or New York are the only ones I’ve tried) the each way price goes back up to 1400 SWISS Franc each way making the flight closer to £2300. I’ve tried various months and dates including the flight matrix and found the same. Maybe BA haven’t actually applied these prices yet?

    • Andy Green says:

      I’ve done the same using the BA app and I can’t obtain these prices quoted by Raff either, cheapest is as per Adam?

  4. Adam Mosey says:

    I don’t think Raff is wrong, as the BA front page clearly states the prices quoted above. I have a feeling that BA simply haven’t applied the fares yet correctly. Maybe its only just come up….

  5. yep same here – looking for flight to Miami in April/May nowhere near – pricing at CHF 9000 for two people.

  6. I was able to price these fares yesterday but not today, somewhat ominous for this deal.

    Copenhagen seems to be the go to place for £850 deals to New York currently…several carriers battling it out there.

  7. What has ‘NOT a mistake fare!’ got to do with anything? They can still cancel any bookings (assuming you can even make them at the stated price) if they want.

  8. Geneva – New York shows at 1340CHF

    It changed the departure to BSL for me and when set to Geneva cheaper fares are shown if anybody is interested.

    • What dates did you book. Still can’t get anything below 5000 in either April or May

      • I haven’t actually booked anything Alan however April is 1352 departing 1-11 April for 7 days. May however is double the money 🙁

        • Go through to the booking page and you’ll see the 1,352 fares aren’t yet available. Comes to more like CHF 2,525.

  9. I confess I’m doing my first ex-Dub to JFK this autumn but I’ve got to say it I don’t think I could be bothered going via Switzerland. Most “ordinary” folk think I’m nuts going via Dublin as it is!

  10. Having just completed my first ex-EU to NYC, I have to say that I won’t be doing this again unless the Europe flights are at least a week away from the TATL, or I really need the TPs and don’t have any other time off.

    Spending an extra 6-8 hours flying/queueing isn’t worth it to get a flat bed for 6 hours.

    I’ll still do same-day ex-EU (or CH if the fares show up) for West Coast and Asia though.

  11. Leo – are you doing Dublin- new york or via LHR on BA? If the former then you have the benefit of US clearance at Dublin. I did it a couplle of weeks ago and thought it was great.

    • No via LHR I think that’s what is meant here by ex-Dub. So you don’t pay the tax etc. I don’t think my friends would think I was nuts if I did it the way you did it.
