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.
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.
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)
Washington – CHF 1,539 (£1,026)
Miami – CHF 1,639 (£1,092)
Chengdu – CHF 2,267 (£1,511)
Accra – CHF 1,461 (£974)
Rio – CHF 1,978 (£1,318)
Buenos Aires – CHF 2,190 (£1,460)
Sao Paulo – CHF 1,914 (£1,276)
Port of Spain – CHF 1,947 (£1,298)
Delhi – CHF 2,085 (£1,390)
These fares seem to be available for travel until June 2016. It is not clear how long you have to book. Tickets are non-refundable once booked.
