Last week, British Airways ran a 48-hour flash sale on ‘Winter sun’ economy flights from Gatwick.
This week, it is offering discounts on Club Europe destinations from Gatwick. 13 cities are available at £150!
You have only 48 hours to book.
Full details can be found on this page of ba.com.
You must travel between 3rd November 2015 and 29th February 2016.
These are the cities included:
- Venice – £150
- Malta – £150
- Innsbruck – £150
- Nice – £150
- Rome – £150
- Bordeaux – £150
- Faro / Algarve – £150
- Marrakech – £150
- Alicante – £150
- Vienna – £150
- Seville – £150
- Friedrichshafen – £150
- Genoa – £150
- Geneva – £150
- Naples – £150
These prices are marked ‘from’ – I don’t know how widespread the £150 seats are when you try to book.
This may be an attractive way to top up your tier points this Winter. If you are on the way to Bronze or Silver status, a couple of weekends away may be enough to tip you over. You will earn a minimum of 80 tier points return on these routes.
Marrakech and Malta offer exceptional deals if you want tier points. As the BA tier point calculator shows, these routes offer 160 tier points return. Spend just £300 to visit both Marrakech and Malta this Winter and you will get BA Bronze status! You would also earn 4,000 Avios return on those routes.
I have never seen Club Europe pricing this low apart from on ‘next door’ routes such as Amsterdam or Dublin. The idea that you can get all the way to Malta in business class for £150 return is incredible.
Remember, you are getting lounge access, a recently improved on-board food offering, all the mini bottles of champagne you can drink, a guaranteed empty middle seat and fast track Gatwick security.
It is a world of difference, especially if having a break with your partner, from hanging around Gatwick and then being stuck at the back of the plane, sharing a row with a stranger, waiting for your mini-bag of crisps to come around …..
The sale ends at midnight on Wednesday. Full terms and conditions can be found on the flash sale site here.
