Some very, very low business class fares to Hawaii – and indeed the United States West Coast – have appeared today from Paris.
This is a very quick article so you will have to do a bit of digging yourself if you want to take advantage (I am on holiday, in theory), but here is an example from Paris to Honolulu for January 2022.
EDIT: As at 10.30pm, the deal appears to be almost dead, at least to Hawaii. It seems that it will work if you can get ba.com to show a routing via Helsinki, eg Paris – Helsinki – USA.
Here is an example from ba.com, where you can book this deal even if it doesn’t have a British Airways flight anywhere:
This is €1,131, so £970. Can’t say fairer than that ….
In terms of tier points, it would earn:
- CDG-LHR – 40 tier points
- LHR-LAX – 140 tier points
- HNL-LAX – 140 tier points
- LAX-SEA – 140 tier points
- SEA-LHR – 140 tier points
- LHR-CDG – 40 tier points
That’s a total of 640 tier points for £970, plus a holiday in Hawaii.
The ‘dream deal’ would be finding a way to book it as Paris – London – New York – West Coast – Hawaii. This would earn 920 tier points because you would have three business class flights of 2,000+ miles in each direction.
Take a look at this Flyertalk thread for more details. It implies that it is worth checking Amsterdam and Madrid as well as starting points.
Check carefully that ALL flights book into Business Class.
Have a play around and see what you can find …..
