The ‘coming and going’ heavily discounted British Airways Club World fares to the US are back for anyone who can commit to travelling in 6+ months time.
These fares are valid for travel:
OUT: six months from today (so 16/11) to 11/12, 24/12 to 31/12, 1/1 to 2/1 (!), 15/2 to 29/3
IN: 29/10 to 31/12, 20/2 to 6/4
….. so, nothing before mid November. You can only travel outbound mid-week (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) and inbound Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Here are some sample fares from Heathrow for November. These prices may be available from some regional airports too. Other destinations in the US and Canada are available as long as they served with a direct BA or AA flight:
- Atlanta £1,411
- Boston £1,321
- Calgary £1,438
- Chicago £1,436
- Dallas £1,451
- Denver £1,471
- Houston £1,461
- Miami £1,521
- Nashville £1,412
- New York £1,351
- Phoenix £1,531
- San Diego £1,461
- San Francisco £1,461
I would strongly recommend also pricing up the flights on the BA Holidays website here. Adding a car or a hotel may not cost much more and could even end up being less! You also get the benefit of only having to pay a ‘from £150’ deposit now to secure your trip.
Where American Airlines flies the route, you can pick AA instead of BA for the same price. You should check the exact configuration of the aircraft type shown but it is likely to be a better seat than Club World, especially if travelling alone.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (October 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!

You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
