It’s that time again – British Airways is conducting its late summer sale, with offers on flights going on until the 23rd September.
British Airways Boeing 747-400 taxing at Heathrow Airport – Image, Economy Class and Beyond. Now you fly a BA 747 on sale !
The sale is on in all classes (World Traveller, World Traveller Plus, Club World and First).
As we like premium fares here, I’ll be taking a look at those to see how much you can fly for ….

There are some ok finds in this list… and there are some “that’s no way a sale fare” ones too (Bangalore in First for £6961… I think not).
The sale runs until the 21st September – so you have a little time for the pay-cheques to hit the floor before splashing out on a return fare in class. Check for restrictions and blackout dates – normally with these fares, they require a six night stay or an overnight-Saturday away.
With the cutbacks going on in World Traveller and World Traveller Plus, you’ll be lucky to anything resembling a second meal or second service that isn’t a small chocolate bar. At least you’ll get something resembling a flat-bed in Club World and First.
Oh yes. There’s a rant post coming up on that. British Airways haven’t escaped my wrath just yet.
Not in any shape or form.
