British Airways has launched its Black Friday deals – and they are pretty good.  How does a £1008 Club World trip sound?

These deals can be found on the special BA Black Friday page here.  They are bookable until midnight on Monday.

Club World for £1,008 per person

BA is offering Club World tickets for the exceptionally cheap price of £1,008 per person to the following destinations:

British Airways £1008 £2016 Club World

  • Atlanta
  • Boston
  • Baltimore
  • Chicago
  • New York (Newark and JFK)
  • Philadelphia
  • Washington
  • Abu Dhabi
  • Dubai
  • Muscat

North American destination require outbound travel (return when you like) between 18th December and 2nd January.

Middle East routes require outbound travel between 5 June and 15 June 2017.  This is in the middle of Ramadan so you will find some hotels operating reduced facilities during the day.

£1,008 return is based on two or more people travelling.  Solo travellers will pay £1,208.  This seems a bit odd but I don’t make the rules.

Connections from selected regional and Irish airports are FREE.  These are Aberdeen, Inverness, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Belfast City and Dublin.

This offer only runs until midnight on Monday 28th November.  Seats are limited, however, so I would book ASAP if you are interested.

The BA Black Friday site is here.  You must book these tickets on here.

£99 per person BA Holidays deals

Whilst potentially less headline-grabbing than £1,008 Club World tickets, these BA Holidays deals may also be worth a look.

These flights are all Euro Traveller / Economy.

The following deals will be bookable via the BA Holidays website here from £99 per person for hotel AND flights:

Barcelona – two nights at the 2* Lami, travelling November 1 – March 31

Venice – two nights at the 3* Centrale Hotel (Mestre), travelling November 2 – March 29

Rome – two nights at the 4* Cristoforo Colombo, travelling November 22 – January 31

Nice – two nights at the 3* Comfort Suites Cannes Mandelieu, travelling November 24 – December 14

Turin – two nights at the 4* Diplomatic, travelling January 4 – January 15

Edinburgh – two nights at the 3* Murrayfield Hotel & Lodge, travelling January 8 – January 31 and departing Gatwick

As there are a limited number of rooms at these properties, I would book sooner rather than later.  Other deals may also have been loaded – I recommend having a poke around the BA Holidays website here and seeing what you can find.
