Between today and Monday 26th November, British Airways is selling two Club World seats to selected destinations for £2018. That’s just £1009 return per person.
You cannot book for one person at these rates. However, it does seem to work for three and other odd numbers.
The deal is only valid for selected destinations. I was genuinely surprised to see Abu Dhabi as the Middle East is normally very busy over Christmas anyway.
Cities included are:
- Fort Lauderdale
- Las Vegas
- New York
- San Jose
- Washington DC
- Abu Dhabi

The bad news is that travel dates are restricted.
Outbound flights must be between:
11th – 13th December
16th – 18th December
24th – 31st December
Return flights must be between:
24th December – 31st December
8th January – 10th January
And try BA Holidays …..
BA Holidays is also running its own Black Friday bonus. For ‘flight + hotel’ or ‘flight + car ‘ holidays booked for travel between 1st December 2018 and 20 October 2019 you will:
- Save £100 on holidays with a minimum spend of £2,500 per booking
- Save £50 on holidays with a minimum spend of £1,250 per booking
To maximise your miles when paying, your best bet is the British Airways American Express Premium Plus card which earns double Avios (3 per £1) when you book at ba.com or via BA Holidays. You do not get double Avios if you book with the free British Airways American Express card. Another option is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold which offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (May 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards. 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.
The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 60,000 Avios, if you apply by 1st June 2022.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
