British Airways launches special Club World deals for Easter travel

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

If you haven’t got your Easter holidays booked yet – or if you have booked a redemption but could be tempted to change it if a good cash deal came along – British Airways may have a deal for you …..

BA has launched a series of ‘flight only’ and ‘flight and hotel’ deals in Club World.  For slightly odd reasons, the ‘flight and hotel’ packages are general cheaper than the ‘flight only’ deals.

You can find full details on ba.com here.

Happy Easter

Here are the headline details:

You must book by midnight on 28th February (hey BA – it’s a leap year)

Travel dates vary, but in general you must travel between 19th March and mid to late April

You must have a Saturday night stay in your booking

The following routes are included:  all of North America except Miami and LA, the South America routes, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Sydney, the India routes, Jo’burg, Lagos (not sure of the Easter holiday attractions there!), Tel Aviv, Dubai

Here are some headline deals from the promotional page on ba.com:

Dubai – £1,419 with 3 nights in a 5* hotel or £1,446 flight-only

New York – £1,749 with 3 nights in a hotel or £1,723 flight-only

Boston – £1,749 with 3 nights in a hotel or £1,783 flight-only

Hong Kong – £2,299 with 4 nights in a hotel or £2,284 flight-only

    Everything is relative guys, the comment is pejorative at best, he has already apologised, no need to add more pejorative/ignorant comments.
    The USA have Donald Trump, who wants to go there
    China is culturally more adverse than Nigeria and the list goes on…
    So can we please stop showing how ignorants and uncultured British people are and now focus on who got a great deal on the sale?
    Cheers!!!!
