    I’ve been looking recently and all the £211 business class tickets seem to have gone, I can’t see any for less than a & 310 ish now.
    I’m guessing BA have adjusted prices due to the popularity of it.

    Agree with that observation. But check again when BA has another sale.

    During the most recent sale in January prices dropped from the typical £310 you see now back down to £211 for many dates (both for near term Mar/Apr and for later in the year Oct/Nov).

    Depends on how soon the flights are.

    Either the lower fare buckets allocations been booked already or withdrawn because their advanced purchase periods have passed.

    Either way that increases the prices of any remaining tickets.

    I was lookin looking for the whole of the year and there and there is nothing that cheap anymore.
    I just figured it is a victim of its own success

    Every time I’ve looked, prices are in the £300-£400 range.
    If I do find, say £140 LHR-SOF, any return pushes the total price to the high end of things, assuming of course there are any flights that day.

    Too many tier point runners have ruined this route – easy 160TP especially when approaching the end of your year and you want to retain gold.
    There does seem to be quite a few locals back in Y though, so maybe not too many direct options? (Easyjet do fly from MAN)

    Then again, as prices go up, more people want to pay them. Why fly for £200 when you can pay £300 for the same thing (and if they make things worse, you’ll keep paying that premium!)?

    I don’t really want to hire a car for 5 days as part of a BAH. A couple of days is enough for me out there, and don’t fancy driving around anywhere locally to be honest.
    A couple of days in the IC is good for me.

    Let’s be honest, it was absurdly cheap for a flight in J offering 160 tier points. The original price reflected the difficulty filling the CE cabin on a route with very little premium traffic, but as soon as the FF community latched onto the price vs tier point ration, the J cabin was constantly rammed with 13 rows of CE on an A320. The ability to do immediate turnarounds at SOF airport was a further incentive.

    When I flew to SOF in down the back in November, the Y cabin was half empty but had every seat taken across 13 rows.
