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.
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
